Just like episode one, Scott kicked off the episode with a new song by the name of "Black Mass," which is definitely a promising sign of things to come since his new album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, is set to arrive August 26. Meanwhile, .Wav co-host Chase B gave a hint of the things to come by letting everyone know, "If you from Houston you gon wanna listen today.." If you tuned in, you will know that the pair ripped through an impressive set of tracks from native Texans including Lil' Troy, Maxo Kream, and Jhiame.
It's possible Scott may have a Young Thug premiere on his hands since the rapper, who now goes by No, My Name is Jeffery, was featured in the episode's artwork. You might remember that we got a preview of Thug jumping on Scott's radio show where he clarified his name change and said that he was holding his album up "six hours for Travi$ Scott," who was allegedly adding a verse to Thug's new Jeffery tape the same night the show was taped. He also said that he is only going by Jeffery for one week if he doesn't sell a 100,000 copies.
From there, the conversation shifted purely to Jeffery, which Thug said he recorded in two months. "The message is—I just want to get off the Slime Season stuff...The message is just to really go back to who I really am. I really am Jeffery. That's really my swag," he explained. "I never had a street mentality. I always had a Michael Jackson mentality. I really am Jeffery."
Scott held nothing back on the inaugural episode of .Wav on Beats 1 last week and dropped his new song, "The Hooch," and a remix of Usher's "No Limit." Then, he debuted his and Kanye West's remix of Alicia Keys' "In Common." He also announced that Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Cashmere Cat, and Kamaiyah will all appear on his forthcoming album.
Somehow, Scott found a way to top his debut .Wav episode with a little help from Young Thug, which you can listen to here on Apple Music.
