Houston rapper Travis Scott is sort of a big deal. Cactus Jack reportedly made nearly $2 million from a recent California concert.

According to reports, Scott’s February 8 Astroworld concert at Los Angeles’ The Forum banked him $1.7 million in profits.

This is huge for Travis because the sellout means Travis is only one of a few artists to have repeat sellouts at The Forum in a 12-month period. He also sold out shows on December 19 and 20. To put this feat in perspective … Travis now joins legends like Garth Brooks, Juan Gabriel, The Grateful Dead, Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Sting and Michael Jackson to accomplish repeat sellouts since 1990. And, get this … the $1.7M is the highest-grossing, single-night engagement of the Astroworld tour. (TMZ)

The hip-hop superstar is currently touring the country performing at major cities.

Outside of touring, Scott is featured in the newly released Playboy spring 2019 issue interviewing fellow rap star Nas.

“One of my idols is Kid Cudi and the way he tells his stories about how he felt as a kid growing up, like where he’s from. I related to that. I adopted my own form of storytelling—whether it’s through melodies or through raps or both. And as a producer too, just studying other fire producers—Pete Rock, Kanye, Pharrell—I was always into mixing different genres. I wasn’t stuck solely in one field. I like to bridge the gap between different styles of music. I always made my own beats and shit. I love James Blake, Toro y Moi and Björk. These types of people influenced me on another level. That’s what’s moved me. I mean, that’s the type of picture I want to paint.” (Playboy)

Nasir Jones took things a bit deeper by discussing his approach to songwriting.

“Politics definitely affects the way I think, but the way I write is my day-to-day life. I did a song talking about daughters, because I have a daughter. “Daughters” was nominated for a Grammy. I feel it—that’s why I wrote it—but I had no idea it would be acknowledged like that when it came out. So I write about day-to-day stuff, and I don’t plan to write anything political, because then it’s forced. It ain’t a natural expression.” (Playboy)
