Early life:

Travis Scott, formerly known as Travi$ Scott,  was born as Jacques Webster, Jr. on April 30, 1992 in Houston in the state of Texas, USA.

Most of his childhood was spent in a part of Houston called Missouri City.

He was raised by his granny who loved him very much and gave him a lot of attention. That is why he had such a hard time separating from her and he respects her the most out of all his family members.

Both of his parents built their careers so he stayed and lived with grandma until he was six.

He moved away from his granny because his mother’s new job in the city and his father work as a company director.

Myspace was the first platform they published on and it was in 2008. In 2009 a new group was formed, this time with Travis’s former classmate named OG Chess.

In 2009 and 2010 the group started a few projects but only a few of them were finished in the end. Scott was in charge of productions and the group finally split up after having some creative differences. It seems that they were generally unhappy because of low incomes and Scott giving the final decisions in everything. He, on the other hand, thought he was entitled to it since he was the moving force and the producer of the group.

Travis relocated to Washington where he has met with his friend Mike Waxx with whom he wanted to collaborate with. The collaboration didn’t work out for anyone and Scott decided to move again. This time he chose Los Angeles because he believed that city will give him a better chance of success.
