Travi$ Scott has changed a lot since his last project Owl Pharaoh from last Summer, from being an XXL freshman to signing with GOOD music and taking direction from talented mentors, he’s pushed his music to a new level. The first thing you’ll notice is that Mike Dean, Boi-1da, TM-88, Lex Luger, WondaGurl, Metro Boomin, DJ Dahi, J-Hill, and Fki contribute on the proudction side; dark and heavy beats, somewhere between intense experimental and H-Town hip-hop.. Travis is living up to his potential, but I feel like fans who enjoyed his more indie/soft material are going to be disappointed. It’s a different style entirely, and although I wasn’t feeling every track on the tape (Zombies, Basement Freestyle, Grey), he’s earned a lot of recognition from the rap community. I’d expect some remixes to surface in the near future, but until then enjoy the project and follow Travi$ on twitter.
