Travis Scott recently got together with Numéro magazine to discuss the launch of his new Cactus Jack Records label, being friends with Kanye West, genre pigeonholing, fashion and more. To accompany the interview, famed photographer Nick Knight in turn shot Scott for the publication.
For some standouts from Travis' sit-down with Numéro, see below. Then follow on over to their website for a closer look.
On his new label, Cactus Jack Records:
“I’m not doing it to have financial control over my music. I want first and foremost to help other artists, launch new names, to provide opportunities. I want to do for them what happened to me, but better. By better I mean no bullshit. No lying to the artists about album release dates or the budgets of videos and albums.”
On Kanye West:
“Kanye, he’s my buddy. When I got the chance to meet him I was so nervous. He listened to my music and thought it was cool. Two weeks later he sent me an email and I found myself on the way to Paris to take part in his Yeezus album.”
“What the fuck is a rapper? I dunno. A country singer, it doesn’t mean anything anymore. No one is a country singer unless he wants to get stuck in one single genre. Me, I sing, I rap, I do beats, I sometimes make videos. Labels piss me off. ”
