“Backyard” -Travi$ Scott


You’ve heard Travi$ Scott even if you don’t recognize the stylized name. He’s produced on Cruel Summer, YeezusMagna Carta Holy Grail, and smaller albums in the past few years. Now he’s moving from behind the scenes again after dropping his second mixtape Days Before Rodeo. “Backyard” lifts the second half of the tape with rag to riches rhymes over a driving bass heavy instrumental. It’s also an example, along with other tracks, of how the XXL Freshmen can adopt different styles (this could’ve been a Kendrick or A$AP song) and flows while keeping a distinct sound. Expect to be hearing more from the Drake approved Scott when he puts out his LP Rodeo later this year.

You can download both of his mixtapes below.
