Travis Scott, Jacques Webster Jr of his real name, was born on April 30, 1992 in Houston, USA. He grew up in Texas in a family of four children. From an early age, he played a musical instrument, drums and piano, before discovering electronic music and rap.
At 17, he founded his first band, The Graduates, with Chris Holloway, and the tandem released its first EP on MySpace. In 2011, he then worked with OG Chess to form The Classmates, but their collaboration turned short. Enrolled at the University of San Antonio, he abandons his studies to focus on music and moves to Los Angeles.
The young rapper was spotted by T.I. who offered him to record in a studio with him. He then made a decisive meeting, that of Kanye West who helped him produce his first EP, Owl Pharaoh, released in 2013. At the BET Hip Hop Awards, Owl Pharaoh was nominated in the Best Mixtape category. Gradually, Travis Scott gained recognition and in September 2015 released his debut album, Rodeo, which featured collaborations with Kanye West and Justin Bieber. The album reached number three on the Billboard 200 sales chart, and in September 2016, he released a second opus, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, which was highly successful. A key figure in the rap scene, he multiplies collaborations (Drake, N’as, DJ Khaled …) and becomes an ambassador of the Nike brand. In 2017, he recorded a new album, Astroworld, inspired by his hometown Houston.
On the private side, in April 2017, he made his relationship with Kylie Jenner official during the Coachella Valley festival. The couple is expecting their first child for the beginning of 2018. On February 1, 2018, Kylie Jenner gives birth to a baby girl named Stormi. But, on October 3, 2019, she announced on social networks that she is separated from Travis Scott.
