Travis Scott has always been a fan of billboards.
It’s a big part of what makes his music so memorable, and for good reason.
His first album, 2012’s The Blacker the Berry, is an absolute classic.
The album is a collection of raps that speak to the city of Chicago, but the songs are all about life.
“You don’t see the sun up in the sky/ Or the ocean waves,” Travis says on “Shake it Off.”
“You can’t see it in your own backyard.”
On the song “Ride or Die,” Travis’ rapping style and his attitude make him the perfect example of the type of artist that can pull a crowd together.
“I don’t know how much you’re aware of how much I’m pushing myself,” Travis tells the crowd.
“And it’s not because I want to.
I want you to understand.
I know how I’m gonna do it.
And if you don’t wanna, I’m going to.
And I don’t care.”
It’s hard to believe that a song like that is still going strong nearly a decade later, but Travis is the epitome of that type of music.
“He’s the guy that’s never going to die,” the Chicago rapper says.
“That’s what I’m saying.
You got a dude that’s gonna keep doing it forever.
He’s gonna do this thing forever.”
And he’s still doing it.
“Shaking It Off” has been re-released on the Travis Scott-owned label Sucker Punch and is currently playing at stadiums around the country.
For fans of the late rapper, it’s a great way to see him in a different light, but it also gives him a chance to make a statement about race relations in America.
It makes sense that the singer would want to give a message to the world.
It would be great to see Travis Scott take on the topic of race, but at the same time, it would be amazing to see a billboard in a predominantly black city with a message about how great life is.
“The whole billboard thing, it sounds ridiculous,” Travis told The Irish Daily Times in March.
“It’s a stupid question.
It doesn’t matter if I’m making a statement.
You’re asking people if they want to get in trouble.
I’m not gonna be in trouble because I’m black.”
The billboard will appear on the side of a road outside the Austin, Texas, home of Travis Scott, his brother Austin and his fiancee Brittany.
It is one of the few billboard images that can show that a person of color is at the center of his life.
Travis said that it was a “very intentional thing” that his brother and fiancé did, and that the billboard was meant to represent how they’re living.
“We thought it would make a little bit of a statement that he’s a black man, and Brittany is a black woman,” he told the newspaper.
“Our whole goal was to make this billboard a representation of who he is and the things that he does.”
The message is clear: The Scotts love each other and they don’t want anyone to think that their brother is anything other than what he is.
It shows that he is still a loving husband, father and friend.
And he isn’t afraid to be himself.
Travis Scott said that the billboards message was important for the group of people he was trying to reach.
“My intention was to show him how important this message was to me,” he said.
“There are people that have never had this conversation with us and it’s very important for us to make sure that he gets the message that we’re not here to talk about this stuff.
It was a message that he wanted to be a part of.
It made a statement to the people that I’m trying to be, that I want them to see that I am one of them and that’s how I feel.”
The billboards message is one that Travis wants the world to know about him and that he will always stand tall for.
“When I was in high school, I was trying out for a rap team and I didn’t have any money, and I was just trying to make it,” he explained.
“A lot of times when you go to a lot of shows, you can get tickets to the house party, or you can buy tickets for the show, but you’re not sure if you’re gonna get in.
So, that’s when I thought, Well, I’ve gotta get tickets, I gotta buy tickets.
And the whole point of my show is to get people to see the person that I really am.”
It is this sentiment that Travis Scott is trying to convey.
The billboard comes at a time when race relations are a hot topic in America and the Scotts are making a stand for the American Dream.
In a recent interview with CNN, Travis talked about how
