New Video: Travis Scott ft. T.I. & 2 Chainz — ‘Upper Echelon’

Travi$ Scott hits the backwoods for his “Upper Echelon” video. The track is off his recent Owl Pharaoh mixtape.

An owl, several 40s and pitbulls can be seen in the Houston rapper’s video. It opens with Scott walking through the woods to a lions roar. The video is part creepy, part mystical, and the closest thing to a hip-hop-inspired David Lynch flick you’ll probably ever see. Scott walks past sheds occupied by the songs collaborators 2 Chainz and T.I., a granny chugging booze, little people, a businessman and a total tweaker. It’s hard to stop watching. Eventually it all goes up in smoke. Sorry if we ruined it for you, but you’ll still end up watching the whole thing. Promise.
