What Is Travis Scott’s Background?

Travis Scott is the stage name of Jacques Berman Webster II, an American rapper, songwriter, singer, and record producer.

Jacques Webster II was born on the 30th of April 1991 in Houston, Texas. His love for music ran in the family, as his father, who ran his own business, was a soul musician, and his grandfather composed jazz music.

When Webster was 17, he graduated from Elkins High School, where he was a member of the musical theatre club.

Although he went on to continue his education at the UTSA (University of Texas at San Antonio), he decided to drop out in the second year to pursue a career in the music industry.

Webster created his professional name, Travis Scott, by combining his favorite uncle’s name ‘Travis’ and his biggest musical inspiration’s real name ‘Scott,’ known by the stage name Kid Cudi.

How Did Travis Scott Break Into Fortune?

Now working under the stage name Travis Scott, he released his first track in 2008 on Myspace (still remember that era?). It was a duo with his close friend Chris Holloway, who called themselves The Graduates.

In 2009, Travis formed another group called The Classmates, along with one of his school friends, O.G. Chess. They released Buddy Rich in the same year and Cruis’n USA the following year.

The Classmates broke up in 2012, coinciding with Travis Scott’s dropping out of college. He moved to New York and started working with Illroots’ owner and his friend Mike Waxx, but things wouldn’t take off as he spent his nights crashing on his friend’s floor.

After four months in New York, the lack of progress caused Travis to move to Los Angeles, hoping for better chances. He was supposed to stay with a friend but was abandoned, and even his parents refused to help financially.

Webster thought it best to move back to Houston with no money. However, his parents kicked him out of their house, so he relocated back to Los Angeles and crashed into another friend’s place.

Travis’s luck finally changes when T.I. hears his production of Lights (Love Sick). A representative of T.I. contacted Travis and asked him to join Travis at a studio for a meeting.

After being discovered by T.I., Travis Scott dropped his first mixtape in 2012 titled Owl Pharoah. The same year, he signed a recording contract with GOOD Music, Kanye West’s label.

He reportedly makes between $30 million to $40 million a year, depending on concerts, releases, and collaborations. That’s about $2.5 million to $3.5 million per month.

Did the Astroworld Festival Tragedy Lose Travis Scott a Lot of Money?

In 2021, the crowd surge tragedy at the Astroworld Festival resulted in the injury of many people and the death of seven individuals. This incident hit Travis Scott’s reputation, and his career and bank account also suffered.

The organizers of the festival and Scott himself were faced with hundreds of lawsuits. One class action sued them for $10 billion, though Scott’s lawyers managed to settle with three families of the deceased.

These legal issues cost the artist a hefty sum, but not enough to put an irreparable dent in his fortune. However, I wouldn’t be too quick to dismiss the possibility, as multiple ongoing lawsuits may take a toll on Scott’s wealth.
