Travis Scott wants to travel from his Astroworld to a utopian world.
The eight-time Grammy nominee hit RIAA triple-Platinum status in 2018 with his latest album, Astroworld. He named his upcoming album Utopia as his personal remedy for a world he says is filled with hostility.
"Medicine, nursing, being a better person, talking, language, communication—you know, a utopian state. That's what my album is about, " La Flame tells CR Fashion Book.
"You think utopia is a society where everything is good: health, buildings, architecture—nah. It’s just about proper lines of communication. Because that’s the dystopian s*** We’re in right now," he continues. "It’s all hate, hate, hate, and all of that is drawn from what? Miscommunication, non-communication, non-understandable communication, ignorance to communication. 'I don’t like this person.' Why? Because somebody told me something to not like this person? Because in history I read to not like this person? Why?"
Scott's daughter with Kylie Jenner, Stormi, turned three years old in February, and on September 7, Kylie announced they are expecting their second child. The "Franchise" rapper says being a father has caused him to change his priorities.
"Now I became a pops, you want to be there to eat food together and turn up for little Stormi," he comments. "She’s so fire because she goes to sleep now. We try to do a more natural vibe [with parenting], like more self-discipline. Like, OK, you know you got to go to bed at nine, are you going to stay up till eleven or are you going to go to sleep now? And it’s so cool [to hear her say], “I’m going to sleep ya’ll!”
