Travi$ Scott's new Beats 1 Radio show, .Wav, is finally here. The show, which will include an interview with Seth Rogen, is set to be a weekly look into Scott's life through music and everything else he has going on.
Scott kicked the whole thing off with his fresh Vinylz produced track, "The Hooch," which received co-production from Boi-1da and Allen Ritter, and the internet collectively lost it.
THE HOOCH 🔥🔥🔥🔥— TRAVIS SCOTT FANS (@LaflameScott) August 12, 2016
The Hooch is crazy. A perfect intersection of my love for Travis Scott and Scrubs— Bobby (@SullivanBobby) August 12, 2016
La Flame didn't stop there though. Midway through the show, he also shared his remix of Usher's "No Limit," featuring his own explosive new verse. Then, he popped things off once again by dropping his and Kanye West's new remix of Alicia Keys' "In Common." He also announced that Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Cashmere Cat, and Kamaiyah are all locked in as guest features on his new album.
Things got more personal as Scott explained to Rogen the reason behind his rap name, which Rogen hilariously pointed out sounds like the name of his accountant. He changed his name to Travis after his favorite uncle and Scott after the real name of his favorite rapper, Kid Cudi.
The conversation shifted to Sausage Party, Rogen's newest film as well as Rogen's, The Interview, which never came out in theaters and resulted in the studio hooking up the stars of the film with armed security for three weeks. They also exchanged stories about their favorite concerts with Rogen recalling the final Wu-Tang Clan show where all members were there while Scott shouted out Justin Bieber's MSG performance. "That shit was crazy. I was like yo, this dude is just way too talented."
The show is part of Scott's freshly inked deal with Apple Music, who will have the exclusive to his album before any other streaming service. If you remember, Chance the Rapper, Drake, and Taylor Swift all signed similar deals with the music service giant. In addition to the new show, Travis has also launched a new personal website, which you can check out here. Included on the site are a list of upcoming tour dates, links to his music, new merch, and updates on everything else.
Scott also teased a free event, co-hosted by Chase B, who is also his partner in his new .Wav show, which will go down somewhere in L.A. tonight and will kick off "BIRD SZN." The event will feature installation by James Turrell, who is the same artist that inspired Drake's "Hotline Bling" video.
