Throughout Travi$ Scott's rise to the top, there have always been accusations that his sound and style are unoriginal. Whether claims that he bites other artists' sounds are substantial or not, Travi$ has dealt with the allegations publicly but always prevails with a brand new banger.
As his success and popularity rise with every release, Travi$'s career is starting to come together piece by piece. "My whole story is straight mythical. It’s tangible, but it’s also what life could be," Travi$ says in his new COMPLEX cover story. But even Travi$ can admit his missteps. "We wanted that No. 1 so bad. This an L," Travi$ said of his Rodeo album not reaching No. 1 on the Billboard chart.
He spoke on the Rodeo leak, and while Travi$ has been open about his issues with Epic Records—calling them "the worst label" back in 2014—it sounds like things might be improving. "They just started understanding me maybe like a month ago," he said. Travi$ has been signed to Epic since 2012.
