Travis Scott, better known by his stage name Jacques Berman Webster II (born April 30, 1991), is an American rapper and performer. His stage name is a combination of his favorite uncle’s name and Kid Cudi’s first name (whose real name is Scott Mescudi). He has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won a Billboard Music Award and a Latin Grammy Award for his work in the music industry.
A publishing agreement with Kanye West’s GOOD Music followed in 2012 when Scott signed with Epic Records as his first big label contract. Epic and T.I.’s Grand Hustle label signed him to a joint recording deal in April of that year. Owl Pharaoh, Scott’s debut full-length album, was released in 2013. Days Before Rodeo, the follow-up mixtape, was released in 2014. The track “Antidote” from Rodeo (2015), his debut studio album, was a huge success. His second album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight (2016), was his first number one album on the Billboard 200 chart. The following year, under the moniker Huncho Jack, Scott collaborated with Quavo on an album titled Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho.
Astroworld, his third studio album, was released in 2018 to great acclaim and generated his first number one song on the Billboard Hot 100, “Sicko Mode,” in the process (featuring Drake).
Topping the Billboard 200 chart at the end of last year, Scott’s record company Cactus Jack Records published the compilation album JackBoys. Scott became the first artist on the Hot 100 to have three singles debut at number one in less than a year after the release of “Franchise” (featuring Young Thug and M.I.A.).
When it comes to safety during his concerts, Scott has become a household name. During Scott’s performance at the Astroworld Festival in his hometown of Houston, Texas, in November 2021, a crowd crush resulted in 10 deaths and hundreds of injuries.
Beginnings in Early Life and Work
Travis Scott, real name Jacques Berman Webster II, was born in Houston, Texas. Until the age of six, he lived with his grandmother in the high-crime neighborhood of South Park, Houston. Moving to a middle-class neighborhood southwest of Houston to live with his parents was the next step. At the age of 18, he graduated from Elkins High School and went on to attend the University of Texas at San Antonio, where he dropped out his second year to focus on music.
Scott and longtime buddy Christ Holloway founded the music duo “The Graduates” in 2008, releasing their unnamed debut EP on Myspace. In 2009, he and classmate OG Chess created the group “The Classmates,” and they released two albums together. In New York City, he worked with buddy Mike Waxx after dropping out of college. Scott left New York City after just four months because he was fed up with the lack of development. During his time in Los Angeles, where he continued to work on his music, he slept on a friend’s couch.
A mixtape called “Owl Pharaoh,” Scott’s first solo full-length record was supposed to be released as a free download in 2012, however, it was postponed owing to sample clearance problems. It was finally made available on the iTunes store in May of that year. Before releasing his second mixtape, “Days Before Rodeo,” in August 2014, he kept making songs and performing, notably at the 2014 South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival in Austin, Texas.
In September 2015, he released his debut studio album, “Rodeo,” on Grand Hustle and Epic Records. To mention a few, it contains guest appearances from musicians like Juicy J, Kanye West, and The Weeknd. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 list in the United States. As of September 2016, he had his first number one album on the US Billboard 200 with the release of “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.” Scott also inked a worldwide agreement with Universal Music Publishing Group in the same month.
