Travis Scott, one of the understudies of Kanye West, is quickly growing a bigger fan base project after project. With his debut album, Rodeo, he achieved getting his song “Antidote” to be number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100. With the success of his first album, he rode that momentum with his Sophomore album, Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight, which was released on September 2nd of this year. 

In his sophomore album, he had many big features such as Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, The Weeknd, Bryson Tiller, and many more. In “The Ends,” with Andre 3000 there isn’t much lyrical value found, but the flow of the artists mixed with the beats makes it a really likable song.

The features in this album took the style of Scott’s, showing that the songs were still in his unique sound. For example, the way Kendrick Lamar rapped his verse in “Goosebumps,” was not the usual style he is known for, but it fit well with the song. The uniqueness of his sound made many people a fan of his music, and a fan of this album as well.
