For those confused, the cover posted by Travis Scott is a reference to Bat Boy, an elaborate media hoax with a 90’s supermarket tabloid.
It remains unknown whether the rapper is releasing a single or a mixtape which reportedly will be titled Dystopia. The new release is the rapper’s first solo release in over a year.
On October 30, 2021, Travis Scott closed out day 3 of Rolling Loud NYC. During the set he performed the unreleased song “Escape Plan” and a preview of another unreleased track off Utopia.
Born Jacques Webster, Travis Scott is affiliated with Kanye West’s GOOD Music and T.I.’s Grand Hustle, Travis Scott became known during the early 2010s for his heavily Auto-Tuned half-sung/half-rapped vocal style.
Within seven years of his mainstream arrival via West’s Cruel Summer compilation (2012), on which he served as co-producer and featured artist, Scott attained numerous platinum singles as a lead artist, including a streak of four that began with “Antidote,” a track off his number three hit debut album, Rodeo (2015).
A Houston-born hip-hop artist and producer, he followed with a pair of number one full-lengths, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight (2016) and Astroworld (2018), all the while assisting in platinum singles headlined by the likes of Rihanna (“Bitch Better Have My Money”), SZA (“Love Galore”), and Drake (“Portland”), and working extensively with Quavo as Huncho Jack.
Whether leading or supporting, Scott’s presence was unmistakable, almost always colored with an array of ad-lib trills including but not limited to “It’s lit,” “Yeah, yeah,” and “Straight up.”
