Though we still don't have anything in the way of official announcements, AstroWorld is clearly imminent.
The new Travis Scott bible, his first new entry since Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, was recently the subject of supergroup-powered recording sessions in Hawaii. Now, giant gold Cactus Jack heads have started popping up to push the hype into near-dangerous levels.
The first giant Scott head was spotted at Amoeba Music in Los Angeles last week.
Then, as seen above and below, a second giant Scott appeared at Minute Maid Park in Scott's hometown of Houston over the weekend:
Then, yet another one popped up above Hard Rock Cafe in New York moments after I published the original version of this article:
As for when we should expect something from AstroWorld, it's worth noting that prolific G.O.O.D. producer Mike Dean recently retweeted a fan's Aug. 3 prediction of something. The tweet also included a rip of a recent Dean livestream in which he promised we would "shit [our] fucking pants," though it's not specified what will be causing this.
Last week, we learned that Tame Impala mastermind Kevin Parker recently hit the studio with Scott for a mystery project. Parker, speaking with Beats 1's Matt Wilkinson, said the session lasted roughly 30 minutes and it wasn't immediately clear at the time if it was for AstroWorld or something else entirely.
As previously reported, Gunna, Sheck Wes, NAV, and Sonny Digital were among those who hit Hawaii earlier this month to presumably put the finishing touches on the long-teased album.
