G.O.O.D. Music rapper and producer Travis Scott covers UK’s GQ Style Spring/Summer issue. In the cover story, La Flame talks about falling through the stage whilst performing with Drake in London, his next album ‘AstroWorld’, his city Houston and much more.
On falling through the stage whilst performing with Drake in London:
“I didn’t fall, dude, I flew. I was floating. I don’t fall. S***, nothing happened. Floating is amazing. It’s like getting in a plane. I just flew, man. I’m a magician, like David Blaine. I could never fall. Drake is an amazing person. Also, a magician. He’s a big brother, super-talent, he’s cool.”
On whether his big pop collaborations are strategic:
“Nah, I wouldn’t make music with you if I didn’t know you. If you’re a good artist and if you know it as well, I’m down. So I don’t look at it as pop. I also look at the artist, for their voice or influence, their style of music. I don’t see it as pop.”
“I feel like Houston is one of the leading things in music culture. Everyone loves the Houston culture. It needs to have its own monument, its own moment for artists like me, artists like Beyoncé who set it off. Beyoncé is like the highest level. We all reach for that level”.
On his next album, ‘AstroWorld’:
“The next record is called ‘AstroWorld’. It might be the best music that I made. I have two records on the album that are like, man, they are the best. They tore down ‘AstroWorld’ to build more apartment space. That’s what it’s going to sound like, like taking an amusement park away from kids. We want it back. We want the building back. That’s why I’m doing it. It took the fun out of the city.”
