Travi$ Scott just debuted his entire new album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, in one epic episode of his .Wav radio show on Beats 1.

The rapper didn't reveal the features ahead of time, but instead chose to break down each assist one-by-one as he and his .Wav co-host Chase B. discussed the album. André 3000 showed up on the album's opening cut and the features only stacked up from there as major players like Kid Cudi, Swizz Beatz, and Kendrick Lamar popped up on the album.

Plenty of newcomers and rising stars alike had their chance to shine on the album as well with mysterious Toronto artist and producer Nav popping up on "Biebs in the Trap." Meanwhile, Bryson Tiller, K. Forest, and 21 Savage had their chance to shine on "First Take" and "Outside," respectively. In a surprising twist, Cassie lent her sultry falsetto to "SDP Interlude."

One of the biggest surprises came when Kendrick Lamar showed up on "Goosebumps." "It's crazy how we got these legends on the album," Scott told his .Wav listeners. "It's so dope how they came to Trav world and turned up. Kendrick turned up...This is the illest rapper in the fucking game."

Scott linked up with many of his close collaborators to help write and produce the album. Hit-Boy and TM88 contributed and doubled down on production duties. Mike Dean and Cardo—​​who famously worked on Kendrick's untitled unmastered. and Drake's VIEWS​​—​handled production on the project as well. Vinylz, Boi-1da, Murda Beatz, and WondaGurl are all credited with producing tracks on the album. Of course, Kendrick, Young Thug, 21 Savage, and Bryson Tiller are all listed as co-writers on their respective collaborations.

Soon after Scott took us through the whole album, he jumped on Twitter to give a special shout-out to all of those who helped him create the project in someway listing off Kanye West, Madonna, James Blake, and The Weeknd.
