How Travi$ Scott Changed My Perception Of Him With 1 Album

At 21-years-old, I’m old enough that I can remember this beautiful culture and genre that we call Hip-Hop long before Travi$ Scott ever existed within it. But, I’m also young enough that his earlier work has an undeniable and strong connection with my later teenage years. Though I do tend to consider myself a fan of his now, I must confess that that wasn’t always the case. At. All. When Days Before Rodeo dropped, it would be fair to say that I was highly critical of him and the music. In my defence, I still stand by the opinions that I had then. Essentially, his style just wasn’t for me. And even on the cuts that I did like (“Quintana Pt. 2”, “Skyfall”, “Mamacita” to name them directly), I thought that the best part of Travi$’ music was never actually Travi$ himself. T.I. and Young Thug both take the cake for me on those songs, outshining the Houston rapper on his own style of production. Perhaps a little snobby and certainly operating out of ignorance, I was still placing a little too much value on his lyrics when I think even he’d say that they should never be the absolute focal point of his music. I have grown to appreciate that project a little bit more in hindsight, but I still feel a though I was missing something that the world seemed to hold onto. It generated a lot of hype for his debut album Rodeo and when the highly anticipated follow-up finally dropped, I of course gave it a listen. It was certainly an improvement on the earlier work, but I wasn’t ready to declare myself as a passenger on the hype train just yet. That’s right when Trav released his sophomore album Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight and I almost instantly fell in love with it. My perception of him and his music did a complete 180. In the years that the album has been out, I have tried endlessly to analyse my mind about why this is the case and I’ll try now to lay it out for you.
