Travis Scott tweeted on his birthday on Monday (April 30) that fans would be the recipients of some new vibes this week and he wasn’t lying. On Friday (May 4), La Flame gives up the new track “Watch” featuring Kanye West and Lil Uzi Vert.
Kanye teased the track back on April 25, urging Travis to unveil the release. The “Goosebumps” rapper obliges today. Pi’erre Bourne is behind the boards on this one, pumping out a thumping, uptempo soundscape with spacey chords. “Look at your Rollie, uh, look at my Rollie, uh/That’s a small face, uh, this a big face, uh,” Uzi and Trav rap on the chorus, bragging out their watch game. “She can’t see my room, fuck her in the hallway/Gettin’ bored with this money, count it all day.”
Travis turns up on the track. “On the south side of town gettin’ me a ball fade/Packs of some stuff, we can down it all take (it’s lit),” he spits with the use of Auto-Tune. “No can’t trust her, she gon’ leave us all laced (laced)/Bust a bankroll in the club, where’s Chase?”
Kanye brings up the rear. “Look at my Rollie, look at your Rollie/Your shit rockless, my shit hockey goalie,” he spits. “You should gon’ hide it, man it’s too bad/Like a bald nigga still wearin’ du-rags.”
The new banger is presumably the new single off Trav’s upcoming album Astroworld which is scheduled to get released this year. The album was slated for a 2017 release but instead was preceded by the Quavo collab project Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho.
On Wednesday (May 2), we got the Travis and Playboi Carti collab “Love Hurts.” Travis kicked off his birthday shenanigans with a bang on Saturday (April 28) when his girlfriend Kylie Jenner rented out Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif. for the rapper who’d never been there. The whole team looked like they had a blast.
In related news, Travis was recently announced as one of the headliners for the upcoming 2018 Hard Summer Music Festival where he will perform with acts like Rick Ross, $uicideboy$, Lil Xan, Trippie Redd, Wifisfuneral and more.
