♫♪  Travi$ Scott - Days Before Rodeo

If there’s one thing the entire human race can agree on, it’s that Travi$ Scott’s ad lib game is mean as all hell. Unmatched in 2014 I’d say, without a doubt. Lil B’s “Figaro!” comes close, but “Straight Up!” is on some God-tier shit.

I wasn’t expecting much from Days Before Rodeo to be honest, but it ain’t half bad, though. There’s some genuine slappers on here, including a few flashes of brilliance too: if you don’t fuck with La Flame’s hook on “Don’t Play” then you need to check your pulse, my G. I wouldn’t say Days Before Rodeo necessarily sheds it overbearing Kudi influence, and Kanye’s shadow still looms large, but it’s leagues ahead of Owl Pharoah. Peewee Longway, Young Thug, and Migos pop in for a bit too. That’s always fun. STRAIGHT UP!
