Travi$ Scott Inks Apple Music Deal, Preps Short Film ‘Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight’
Travi$ Scott is riding the wave but he’s far from resting on his rap laurels. During an interview with Shade 45’s The Whoolywood Shuffle (with DJ Whoo Kid), the “Antidote” rapper confirmed that he did sign a deal with Apple Music.
“I just did my partnership with Apple Music and s—,” he said. “[Apple Music’s Head of Content Larry Jackson] is f—ing amazing. That dude, he believes. He’s always talked to me when I was like beginning off. He always gave me that advice. You know, just to figure out where I’m going. So, I’m glad he’s down to take this trip with the kid and with this album; it’s super good.”
The 24-year-old rapper is currently working on his next project, which called Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. Although the album is still a work in progress he did revealed that a short film will be attached to the project.
Scott is among a group of creatives who have flourished under the Apple Music brand. Fellow rhymers like Drake, Future, Chance the Rapper, and of course, Dr. Dre have all dropped exclusive content through their streaming service.
Scott, who DJ Whoo Kid calls the “Golden Mouth,” is currently on his summer tour. The rapper will open up for FKA Twigs on Wednesday (July 20) at Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore. Then he will perform in San Diego, Calif., on July 24 and Brooklyn, N.Y., on July 26. To peep his full itinerary, head over to songkick.com.
