    I'm not a big Travis fan, but I did like some songs from Rodeo and Astro. I feel like it's still a bit soon to be sure.

    This would have been interesting after his album drops.

    He always sounds uninspired, has nothing to say, and i just hate his hype all around the world.

    I'm having fun with them too lol. If you have any suggestions please let me know, I've been trying to think up rappers who have a very vocal fanbase but also get s--- on by the general populace lol

    Travis isn't the best rapper most of the time but he's good imo.

    I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy some of Travis's music and I think as far as his albums go, Astroworld is a pretty good album—but when his albums are good, they're rarely good because of his direct contributions. On other people's songs he often slows them down to a screeching halt his uninspired karoake of future/thug/migos/kanye/cudi. Where he shines is as a curator with a DJ Khaled type role where he can fit a bunch pieces together...kinda like modern Kanye tbh where when he manages to throw something good together, he's often the most inessential piece when it comes to the actual rapping.

    Yeah besides rare examples like 90210 or SKELETONS (which he didn't even write lol) his albums are mostly about seeing who he collaborates with in order to make it sound good.

    its just enfuriating to see how some average artists are percieved abroad. In my country, so many rap fans completely overrate rappers like drake and travis, like they are gods or smthn. Truly eye rolling.

    Haven't listened to enough to comment fully. Listened to that album with the space theme on the cover and didn't really feel it.

    Astro was decent. Sicko Mode with Drake helped a lot though, and being a Jenner too lol
