AceShowbiz - Travis Scott (II) may be a new name in the game, but he has made himself be counted among one of the influential artists this year. The Houston native, who began making beats when he was just 17, successfully entered the top three of U.S. music charts with his debut studio album "Rodeo".
The LP hit No. 1 on Billboard's rap albums chart and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. "Antidote", one of the singles off the record, has peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard 100 chart and recently gone platinum, selling over a million copies, outpacing the lead single "3500".
Amid the buzz of his "Rodeo", Scott shows no sign of slowing down. While hitting the road for his "Days After Rodeo" Tour as well as supporting Rihanna on her "Anti" World Tour, he hinted that he had begun crafting new music. "studio," he simply tweeted on December 24.
His music career aside, Scott had a not-so-impressive record in the eye of the law. On December 22, he pled guilty to reckless conduct charge after he started a stampede at Lollapalooza music festival last summer. Just a day later on December 23, he and rumored girlfriend Rihanna were caught up in a club shooting when chaos erupted outside Project Los Angeles nightclub where the two were partying that night.
