On its 10th anniversary, we take a look back at the project and how it, in the end, became a project that helped shape the music that we hear today.
When thinking about the hip-hop album of the year no other album comes to mind other than Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD. It gave fans an experience that goes beyond music. The album serves as an ode to Houston culture. It’s a seamless collection of experiences that take you on a roller coaster ride. With the release of the album, Travis showed the promise we saw in him since the release of Rodeo.
With his third studio album ASTROWORLD, Travis has given us some of his best music to date. It just seems like all the experimental things he’s been doing over the last two albums have finally paid off and now we are receiving the fruits of his labor. On the album, Travis showcased his production and curation skills as he has put together some of the industry’s biggest names in hip-hop to help create this album. The album also served as a tribute to his hometown of Houston.
