AceShowbiz - Rapper Travis Scott (II) was handed the key to his native Houston, Texas during a tour stop on Wednesday night, February 13.
The city's Mayor Sylvester Turner hit the stage at the Toyota Center to honour the "Sicko Mode" star and paid tribute to him for raising Houston's profile.
"We owe so much to this guy for keeping Houston on the map," Turner said, before revealing Scott's "Astroworld" album had inspired city leaders to launch a new themepark for the area.

"Those of us that remember (Houston themepark) 'Astroworld', and because of him, we're gonna bring another amusement themepark back to the city. This city loves you."
Scott opened up about his plans to revive his childhood themepark on the "Astroworld" album's first track, "Stargazing", rapping: "99, took AstroWorld, it had to relocate/Told the dogs I'd bring it back, it was a seal of faith."
