In case you missed it, Travis Scott is GQ‘s latest cover star alongside girlfriend Kylie Jenner. The two sat down for their first-ever joint interview to talk parenthood, the “Kardashian Curse,” Scott’s upcoming album AstroWorld, and much more. Writer Mark Anthony Green happened to be around when the Houston rapper received a FaceTime call from Kanye West and Kid Cudi, who pressed him for a verse to submit to their recent collaborative album KIDS SEE GHOSTS.
“Travis is excited but not ecstatic,” Green writes in the article. “He sends the verse but he’s not preoccupied by it. I want to be clear, and so does he: Travis wants to be on the album. But his musical preoccupations are firmly fixed on his next solo album: AstroWorld, rumored to drop later this year.”
Travis Scott has named Kid Cudi as one of his biggest musical inspirations, likening him to Michael Jackson, telling Green they’re “musical equals.” While Scott’s verse did not make the final cut on KIDS SEE GHOSTS, it seems like he’s been channelling his energy into his own highly-anticipated AstroWorld album.
