Is Utopia on the horizon?
While putting on his Air Jordan 1 Low “Black Phantom” collab in the Houston Astros’ dugout at Minute Maid Park, Trav made the announcement, revealing he just played the album in the Astros’ locker room to “get ’em right for the game.”
Scott also seemed to suggest he’s currently in the mastering stage of Utopia.
It looks like the Utopia locker room listening session did indeed get the Astros right for tonight’s game. Houston racked up five hits in the first inning to take a 4-0 lead over the Chicago Cubs.
Trav has been teasing the arrival of Utopia for about three years, dating back to when he changed his Instagram bio from “Astroworld” to “Utopia,” and tweeted, “Going to go cook up and build these walls for utopia. see you guys soon.”
His last studio album Astroworld was released in 2018. On Nov. 5, 2021, Scott dropped a pair of songs—“Escape Plan” and the J. Cole-featuring “Mafia”—in anticipation of his ill-fated performance at the Astroworld Festival where eight people died and hundreds were injured. A $750 million class-action lawsuit on behalf of 125 concertgoers and 21-year-old Axel Acosta, who was killed, was filed against Scott, Drake, and Live Nation.
