Travis Scott graces the front cover of Billboard magazine this month, as the 25-year-old rapper is the main focus in the newest issue. With a successful 2017 under his belt, and looking to continue the momentum in the new year, Scott has been busy working on his upcoming album Astroworld - which is expected to drop in the first quarter of 2018 - as well as frequently visiting his rumored girlfriend Kylie Jenner, who is reportedly pregnant with his child.

Billboard recently caught up with the Houston superstar to further delve into his 2018 plans:

...on his workflow.

TS: "I’ve been on this schedule for the past six, seven years. I got too much shit to do, too much ground to cover. My whole life, I ain’t been on vacation."

...on having time off.

TS: "Shit, Heaven -- hopefully."

...on wanting to be like his friend and mentor Kanye West, to be recognized for his singular vision.

TS: "That’s my mission, man. I worked so hard on Rodeo and Birds. It might not have been recognized by the masses, but my fans always went hard. This year I’m on a mission to be heard."

...on the legal issue regarding a fan that fell from a Terminal 5 balcony.

TS: "Nothing we do is meant to harm nobody. Kids having fun is being mistaken for violence."

...on details of his upcoming album, Astroworld.

TS: “I don’t even know what’s going to be on it yet,” Scott also implies that Kanye West is involved in some fashion saying, "I played him some joints. We’re always talking. We’re always working on shit. I see him every day."

...on not crediting himself with production on his own tracks.

TS: "As a producer, I used to hate it when people tried to take credit for my shit. Sometimes, being an artist might overshadow the producer, and I'm always for the producer."

...on dealing with pregnancy rumors regarding Kylie. (Billboard: There are these rumors that you’re dating Kylie and having a child with her...)

TS: "I don’t want to talk about that. They’re just guesses. Let them keep fishing."

...on his burgeoning fame.

TS: "There's good and bad to it," he says. "It's how you live your life. You just got to stay focused. Can't let motherfuckers throw you off."
