Travi$ Scott & Casey Veggies To Embark On PNCXX Tour
05 / 31 / 13
When 20-year-old Travi$ Scott played at SXSW this March, the festival’s program guide noted that there was a “relentless buzz on the internet,” and that his upcoming release, Owl Pharaoh, was “arguably the most highly anticipated Hip Hop album of the year.” There were thousands of artists at SXSW, but Travis was the one everyone wanted to see. He’s been the artist everyone’s wanted to hear for a while, and now, with the release of his debut single, “Upper Echelon” ft. T.I. and 2 Chainz, it’s about to happen. He premiered the track with T.I. on April 18th in the studios of LA’S Power106 on the on the Justin Credible/LA Leakers Show.
Originally from Houston, Travi$ caught the ear of T.I. shortly after he arrived in Los Angeles in 2011. Signing to T.I.’s Grand Hustle/Epic label, Travis caught the attention of Kanye West, who was so blown away by Travi$ that he featured him on three tracks on the G.O.O.D. Music compilation, “Cruel Summer.” From there it just started rolling. People were listening, talking and writing about Travis, online and off, and XXL Magazine put him on the cover of their 2013 Freshman Class issue.
Music fans initially discovered Travis because of his association with T.I. and Kanye, but all that’s about to change. With the release of “Echelon,” Travis Scott has come into his own carving out a lane leaving fans thirsting for Owl Pharaoh. This spring Travi$ will hit the road with fellow comrade and label-mate, Casey Veggies to embark on a tour that will criss-cross the country beginning May 12th in Dallas and concluding on June 3rd in San Diego, CA. This tour will reunite Travi$ and Casey on stage together for the first time since Travi$’ debut, high-energy MTV Woodie Awards performance.
