Travi$ Scott‘s major label debut album, Rodeo, was released in September of 2015 after a year of heavy anticipation following the release of his critically-acclaimed Days Before Rodeo mixtape in the summer of 2014. The album fared well, debuting at #2 on the Billboard 200 and spawning hits like “Antidote” and “Piss On Your Grave” featuring Kanye West, but it wasn’t enough to send La Flame on vacation.
He’s been teasing a new project for weeks, but the release of “Pick Up the Phone” with Young Thug several weeks ago made it quite apparent that Scott would not be waiting another year to drop another project. Eventually, that project had an official title–Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight–and the Houston rapper promised at every turn that it would be arriving quite soon.
That time has come. Last night, at a crazy show at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, Scott announced the release date for BITTSM.
I want everybody to lock in a date right now in their brains. August 5th. Birds in the Trap coming soon!
