Scott’s most notably known for having a semi-successful rapping career for the past ten years but how does Scott measure up in comparison to his partner, Kylie? Let’s take a look at how Travis makes his money.
Travis Scott was born Jacques Webster on April 30,1992. Scott was born in Houston Texas but grew up in Missouri City in a middle-class suburban neighborhood. At first, Scott was raised by his grandmother but eventually moved in with his father who at the time ran his own business. Scott attended a private elementary and middle school before switching to public school for his teenage years. After graduating from high school, Scott attended the University of Texas at San Antonio but dropped out his sophomore year to pursue his music career.
Immediately after dropping out, Scott moved to New York City in an attempt to jumpstart his music career. After learning of his plans to become a music star, his parents cut him off financially and left Scott to fend for himself.
2008 – 2012
Scott first embarked on his music career at the age of 16, focusing on hip-hop production. He went into his first partnership with his longtime friend, Chris Holloway, and together they formed The Graduates. In 2008 the duo released their untitled first EP on Myspace. In 2009, Scott and his former schoolmate, OG Chess formed a different group, The Classmates. Together they released two projects in 2009 and 2010. Scott focused on production more so than rapping. The pair remained together until 2012 but ultimately split up due to personal conflicts and financial disputes.
After Scott relocated to New York upon leaving Texas, he started working with Mike Waxx, the owner of Illroots, a music website. Scott spent his time primarily at Just Blaze’s studio, but the move was short lived because he moved to Los Angeles, California just four months later. But his housing fell through in California, and he was forced to move back to Texas.
His parents still disapproved of their son’s life choices, which caused Scott to try and move back to Los Angeles again. Initially, he crashed on friend’s couch. Sometime later rapper T.I. heard one of Scott’s productions and requested to meet with Scott. The meeting went well and T.I. wound up rapping over one of Scott’s productions.
2012 – 2014
Under T.I.’s Grand Hustle label, Scott was set to release his debut album Owl Pharoah, for free in 2012 but the release was delayed. After Kanye West‘s attempt to re-release the album also resulted in delays the project was shelved and Scott focused on releasing various singles instead.
In 2013, Pharoah was finally released. The following year Scott released his second mixtape Days Before Rodeo. Due to his second mixtape’s success, Scott headlined his first concert tour called “The Rodeo Tour.” Scott’s popularity quickly grew, and many venues promptly sold out resulting in additional tour dates being added and proving to be lucrative for Scott.
2015 – 2016
In 2015, Rodeo, Scott’s album was officially released and featured several musical guests and fellow rappers on the album. The following year Scott announced plans for a follow-up album titled, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. The album was released later on in the year and became Webster’s first number one album on the U.S. Billboard 200.
2017 – Present
In March of 2017 Scott when on a three-month tour called, “Birds Eye View”. In April, he eluded to a collaborative album with Migos groupmate, Quavo. In the interim, Scott also announced that he would be releasing his third project Astroworld shortly. On December 21, 2017, Scott’s and Quavo’s collaborative project, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, was released. In February Scott welcomed his first child with his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner.
