This week’s Icon is a young man straight out of Texas. The 22-year-old has been on quite the rise lately which is why I’m confident that this isn’t the first time you’ve heard of LA FLAME. If by some chance it is…well…you’re in for quite the ride. This dude Travis Scott has a crazy unique sound, a demeanor so unique I don’t know how to describe it, and a style that is incredibly distinct. Like I’ve said in previous Icons, if you don’t believe me, you have to look and listen for yourself. He recently dropped his latest project titled Days Before Rodeo, which is a 12-track album that is supposedly the lead up to his debut studio album dropping in 2015. The project is averaging a million plays per song on SoundCloud. It’s a must-listen. Also, a few months back, Yung Lean dropped a track titled “Ghosttown” that features Travis Scott. Another must hear.
In terms of his physical style, it’s hard to start without mentioning his hair. Just like his music, it’s different and unique. To get an idea of how individualistic he is, head over to YouTube and watch his “Mamacita” music video, featuring Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug. As obvious in the video, he’s pretty tight. His style is a raw combination of varsity jackets, old rock tees, tattered denim and, as mentioned previously, his signature dreadlocks. Travi$ is the epitome of the guy who doesn’t care, but looks like he cares just enough. Be on the lookout for his upcoming potential tour dates, and in the meantime keep his style choices locked by hitting him with a follow on the ‘gram.
