Travis Scott explains why he is not limited to just being ‘a rapper.’ The superstar has been abe to create a sound so authentic that we really don’t know what it is. What we do know is his music is a mixture of so many different genres.
Scott also is a big fan of several artists outside of the genre of rap, expressing his fandom fro Black Sabbath, Calvin Harris, James Blake, and Tame Impala. In general, he’s making an effort not to limit himself to being a “rapper.
“What the fuck is a rapper?” he says. “I dunno. A country singer, it doesn’t mean anything anymore. No one is a country singer unless he wants to get stuck in one single genre. Me, I sing, I rap, I do beats, I sometimes make videos. Labels piss me off. “
