Houston native Travi$ Scott is making the press rounds in support of his debut effort Rodeo, and recently stopped by French outlet Clique TV.
Within the 23-minute sit-down, the “Night Call” artist touched on all things music. From his talent as a sought after producer to his very own body of work, Rodeo, the 23-year-old revealed his mission for the aforementioned project, which features Kanye West, Chief Keef, Toro y Moi and more.
“It was kinda like what I was feeling when I was trying to get to this point right now. To be sitting in this chair. And then it’s kinda like a blueprint for kids who wanna do the same,” Scott said. “It’s like the inner-child-beast-man. It’s kinda like the person that might be misunderstood. Might be mistook as an asshole. Taken as a mean person, a rude person. But it’s really just super-energized. I’m just here for good times, man. I want people to have the best time ever. Especially if they’re around me. I feel like God put me here to help out with people’s soul, man.”
Scott also touched on the fact that he doesn’t want to be categorized in the hip hop tab of music, stating, “I don’t consider myself hip hop. I don’t want you to put me up next to n*ggas cause some of them n*ggas are just like, straight corny…I think with production I pay very close attention.” He later continued, “Cause that’s my favorite thing in music. That’s the whole drive. That’s the reason. So, I gotta just make sure I have that ill sh*t n*ggas just can’t get. N*ggas just can’t be playing they beats and have the same producer that sound like a Travi$ Scott song. I just don’t f**k with that.”
