Travis Scott hasn't confirmed a release date for new album AstroWorld yet but he already has a strong vision for any accompanying tour dates. The rapper, who is rumored to be about to become a father, spoke to Rolling Stone in a new interview in which he opened up about his ambitious plans for a new kind of stage show.
The Houston rapper said he wants his concerts to double as amusement parks, similar to the now-defunct AstroWorld park in Texas that inspired the album title. "I don't know why it hasn't been done already," he said "I think people just don't do shit. Who makes stages these days that are cool?"
On the subject of AstroWorld, Scott confirmed he was making the album on the bus while on tour with Kendrick Lamar. "Just chillin'," he said of the process. "Recording. Formulating a story, the picture I'm trying to paint."
Talking about his creative process, which also includes directing music videos and dreams of moving into architecture, Scott added: "You ever see pictures in your head? I be having that all day. It's like a museum. That's why I don't do too many drugs, because my brain would explode. I'm my own drug. If I bleed and someone licked my blood, it's like liquid MDMA – know what I'm saying?"
