Travis Scott Reportedly Plays “Astroworld” For Epic Records

Just last week, Travis Scott hinted that his long awaited Astroworld album was all finished. While he didn’t technically say the words, La Flame tweeted out a rather telling tweet, saying “HAPPPIEST FUCKING KID EVER. LETS FUCKING GETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT IT. !!!!!!!! ASTROWORLD,” alluding to fans that he’s excited about his album finally being done. And if that wasn’t enough, his engineer & frequent collaborator Mike Dean then added more fuel to the fire by sharing a photo the hard drive the album, leaving fans anticipating its release.

While there’s still no word when we’ll get to hear the final product, it looks like we’re much closer to it arriving than we think. On Wednesday, Travis stopped by his label’s headquarters at Epic Records and apparently played them the album. Some photos surfaced online Epic decorating their fices with Astroworld banners, welcoming him like the top artist that he is. I’m sure they also talked about a release date as well, but we’ll have to wait and find that out.

This meeting occurred just a week or so after La Flame assembled a superteam in Hawaii to help him finish the album. The likes FKi 1st, Allen Ritter, Frank Dukes, Nav, Gunna, Don Toliver, Sheck Wes, Cash from XO, Sonny Digital, Wheezy, WondaGurl and again Mike Dean were all there to work on the highly anticipated album.

Kanye West & Former Manager Scooter Braun Buddied Up At Album Listening Party

Last night’s album listening party for Kanye West’s brand new project ye was extremely eventful. As fans were subjected to viewing a close-up video a fire burning with horses in the background for over an hour, the fun finally started as the party gathered around the flames when the music began. With nearly everybody who is somebody in the music industry attending the affair last night, there was still very little known about the album. Until it dropped on streaming services this morning, it was unclear if the name was “ye,” “Wyoming,” “Love Everyone,” or even the proposed “Turbo Grafx 16” from years ago. With all his friends making their way to Jackson Hole, Ye’s former manager Scooter Braun also came out, spending much his time with Kanye as reported by TMZ.

The media publication is stating that the two spent a lot time together at the listening party and, while Kanye was the man the hour, he still managed to get some conversations in with his most important guests. You’ll recall Yeezy stating that he “can’t be managed” before confirming his split with Scooter Braun, who took over management duties for Kanye a few years ago. Although the extent their current working relationship is unclear, TMZ affirms that Scooter is still very much a part Ye’s business decisionmaking. 

Referring to him as a “young David Geffen,” Ye has high praise for Scooter and the two have proven to work well together. Check out a photo them from last night here.
