Travis Scott has seen a steady rise in the music industry recently. With singles like “Antidote” and “3500,” he’s been making a name for himself in the rap game. Even more recently, you may be able to place the singer because of his connection to the one and only Kylie Jenner. Jenner broke up with longtime hanger-on Tyga and seems to have moved on with Scott. The two were seen at his performance at Bentley University and have shared some very telling photos on social media that make us think things are heating up between the pair.
Regardless of his ties to Jenner, Scott has found much success in his music career. It’s because of that success that his net worth is starting to really blow up. So, how much is the rapper worth?
Travis Scott’s Net Worth in 2017: $8 Million
Let’s take a look at how Scott amassed that fortune.
2009 – 2014
Travis Scott was born Jacques Webster Jr. but gave himself the stage name Travis Scott (sometimes written as Travi$ Scott) when he started his rap career. Scott originally formed a duo with Chris Holloway called Graduates. He then formed another duo with OG Chess called Classmates. Neither of these duos attained the level of fame that Scott would soon cultivate. Scott really started to gain the attention of the music industry with his 2012 solo project Owl Pharaoh. It was originally delayed but did get the one and only Kanye West to sign the rapper to his GOOD Music label. Scott would go on to release Owl Pharaoh in 2013, with other solo singles like “Upper Echelon” and “Blocka La Flame” being released before then.
Scott released his next album, Rodeo, in September of 2015. The album saw a slew of famous rappers who collaborated with Scott on his tracks. These personalities included Justin Bieber, Kanye West and The Weeknd among others. This album included Scott’s singles “Antidote” and “3500,” which are arguably still some of his most popular and well-known singles to date.
2016 – Present
Scott released a new album entitled, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, in September of 2016. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, so it was obviously a big success. In the beginning of 2017, Scott related that he would be collaborating on a clothing line with Helmut Lang, following in the likes of Kanye West and Drake‘s footsteps in releasing a fashion line. The rapper has been featured on numerous recent tracks such as Migos’ “Kelly Price” and Drake’s “Portland” in advance of his next album, AstroWorld, which he has said will be released later in 2017.
We’ll be ready to keep up with whatever Travis Scott has in store. After all, his music career is booming and it looks like he’ll soon be making waves in the fashion world too. We also have the weirdest feeling that we’ll see him appear in the new reality series Life of Kylie. So, you should all get ready to see even more of Travis Scott!
