With his own debut Owl Pharoah maybe-maybe not dropping next week Travi$ was privy to listening to his G.O.O.D. Music boss’ highly-anticipated return to music personally. Sitting down with MTV he speaks on the “next-level” audio compositions Mr. West crafted.
Sitting down with MTV, Travi$ Scott speaks on his relationships with Kanye West and T.I. and how he’s signed to both G.O.O.D. Music (as a producer) and Grand Hustle (as an artist). Owl Pharoah (hopefully) coming soon.
It’s a slow Sunday evening after a rather eventful weekend, so I’m perusing the Internets when I see this message Homme De XX left on his the Twitter account:
MAY 21st OWL PHARAOH I might give out earlier. Travisscott.com
— TRAVIS SCOTT (@trvisXX) May 5, 2013
Now, we all know this isn’t the first (or fifth, for that matter) time he’s let loose a release date for the oft-delayed and highly anticipated project, but with his buzz growing every minute – as well as his recent accomplishments and Grand Hustle/G.O.O.D. Music affiliations – now’s as good a time as any to let the project loose in my opinion.
Side note: I’ve taken a liking to spin “Upper Echelon” at parties, and I suggest others should do the same as it garners a huge response.
Kris Stephens, though…

PREVIOUS: Travi$ Scott – Quintana f. Wale
Whilst working out here in London, he played me a lot of G.O.O.D. future classics. From what I heard, the Rapper/Singer/Producer is easily going to have the game in a chokehold over the next 12 months. He talked on the ‘Owl Pharaoh’ EP, his debut album, and the recent depature of Kid Cudi from THE G.O.O.D. music situation. The highly anticipated ‘Owl Pharoah’ EP drops on May 15th. – DJ Semtex.
The youngest G.O.O.D. Music member is the next up to freestyle for the House of Harris.
