Travis Scott’s real name is Jacques Bermon Webster II. He was born on April 30, 1991, in Houston, Texas and spent his early years being raised by his grandmother in South Park.
He witnessed a lot of crime from a young age. When he turned six, he moved in with his parents in Missouri City, Texas. His mother was an Apple employee. His father was a businessman, jazz composer, and soul musician.
Jacques went to Elkins High School, where he was a member of the musical theater. He subsequently went to the University of Texas at San Antonio but dropped out after his first year.
While still in school, Webster pursued music under his initial moniker, Travis Scott. He established a duo called “The Graduates with his old buddy Chris Holloway”. They dropped their first EP on Myspace in 2008.
In 2009, he became a part of a new duo named “The Classmates with OG Chess”. They released two projects before breaking up in 2012. After quitting college, he went to New York in hopes of improving his career.
After four months, he relocated to Los Angeles, California, and then back to his parents’ place in Houston. Travis struggled a lot until famed rapper T.I. heard one of his productions and contacted him.
After being delayed for a year, Scott’s debut solo mixtape, Owl Pharaoh, was released in 2013. Two years later, his debut studio album, Rodeo, was published and became number three on the United States Billboard 200.
His first Billboard 200 number one album is his second one, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. This helped him ink a contract with Universal Music Publishing Group.
Since then, Travis continued to gain popularity and accolades in the music industry. He also had other ventures, including collaborations with Nike, PlayStation, and McDonald’s. He also had a 2019 Netflix documentary titled “Look Mom I Can Fly.”
