Five years prior today, Travis Scott released his sophomore collection, “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.”
Travis Scott is effectively one of the most profitable and compelling figures in mainstream society, however only five years prior, he was all the while making his mark. Following the arrival of consecutive warmth on 2014’s Days Before Rodeo and his presentation studio collection Rodeo in 2015, everyone was focused on Travis Scott to check whether he would have been ready to take that jump and join Hip-Hop’s higher class of specialists. Also, despite the fact that he officially arrived at superstardom with Astroworld in 2018, it was his sophomore collection, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight which made ready for the Houston rapper’s transient ascent.
Loaded with excellent visitor highlights from Hip-Hop pillars like Kid Cudi and Kendrick Lamar just as shocking new specialists like 21 Savage and Nav, BITTSM was a liberal offering from Travis that really pushed him as far as possible as a musician and a Kanye West-esque collection custodian. Beside the collection’s octuple platinum track “Goosebumps,” one of the most unbelievable minutes on Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight was its André 3000-helped introduction, named “the finishes.” Both craftsmen paint stunning photos of the places where they grew up, yet the outcome is still frightfully lovely.
Praise the five-year commemoration of Travis Scott’s down changing sophomore studio collection Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight by returning to the record’s dim introduction beneath. What’s your #1 track from the platinum-affirmed project?
I came up in the town, they were murderin’ kids, hmm
And dumped ’em in the creek up from where I live (Ayy)
Bodies, bodies, bodies sprinkled around (Uh, uh)
We runnin’ through the sprinkler lookin’ around
Killer would show up with boxes of pizza, uh
And said he had a label recruitin’ people (Uh)
Put that on my grandma and everything, yeah
My homie said he told ’em his name was Wayne
It could’ve been me or could’ve been you too
