Travis Scott and Nas are two of hip hop’s most iconic stars and now they take an interview with Playboy.
The artists talk about the music industry before and after the internet, taking control of their artistry, admiration for each other, various inspirations, focusing on their craft, generational gaps, avoiding political conversations, words of encouragement, use of social media, polarizing sounds, freestyling, record contracts changing, evolving, growth of rap’s popularity, personal experiences, media mind control, and more.
Travis has been going through some tough times in his relationship with Kylie Jenner. Things started to go sideways when she accused him of cheating with Jordyn Woods. They seem to be repairing that lost trust now.
Nas recently sold Pluto TV to Viacom for a massive $340 million price tag. He’s also working on a follow up to NASIR.
