Travi$ Scott Talks Days Before Rodeo , Kanye West's New Album

G.O.O.D. Music rookie preps for tour with a free LP.

G.O.O.D. Music up-and-comer Travi$ Scott took a page from his mentor, Kanye West, circa his G.O.O.D. Friday era, and gifted fans with a free album, but wasn't sure how fans would receive it.

Turns out, Days Before Rodeo, another joyride through the producer/rapper’s dark, eclectic mind, was a sure-fire follow up to his 2013 debut, Owl Pharaoh.

"I’m kind of surprised. I thought it was gonna take a little minute for people to probably f--k with it. But I always thought the album was ill,” La Flame told GQ in a recent interview during New York Fashion Week. Bloggers and fans agreed that the album, which features appearances from Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan and Migos, was runner up for album of the summer. Even Ye cosigned his protégé’s work.

"Like, the day I dropped it and he tweeted it. I was like, 'Oh, s--t!'" the "Skyfall" rapper recalled. "And he ain't even text me or nothing. And then I went to go meet up with him later, and he's like, 'Oh, man, this is ill as f--k. One of the illest albums.'"

From Flame’s summer heat to Yeezy’s Yeezus follow-up Travis promised that there is certainly more fire to come. "Some ill albums that's coming out the end of this year. I don't want to really spoil it, cause you know how it is with them. But just know, man. Just know Ye is coming to kick some a--. Straight up. I'm so excited for his new s--t, man."

Besides working on Ye’s album, Travis is planning the upcoming tour for Days Before Rodeo and working on his studio debut album, Rodeo, which he said will be out early 2015.
