The rapper recently spoke about using his platform to help raise awareness.
In his cover feature interview, Travis Scott revealed that after he got to know officials in his hometown of Houston while planning his Astroworld Festival, he became more actively interested in politics. “We got a voice to try to make change,” said the rapper. “People are listening, you know what I mean? And we want to try to make sure they understand that I’m a tool. Allow me to help in any way. Let me know where we got to go show up. It’s a big picture. It’s like a lot of groundwork we got to do.”
Scott also told the magazine, “You’re trying to get to a point where people are finally seeing the oppression that’s been happening and overlooked, and that we, as a culture, have been fighting through every day. I mean, look how many leaders we have in the Black community.” Check out a few stills from his photoshoot below.
