Thanks to the success of songs like “3500” and “Antidote,” Travis had a strong musical debut. Rodeo — released in 2015 – fuses trap, psychedelic elements, and autotuned melodies that showcase Travis’ ability to transcend traditional rap boundaries.

The album features contributions from Kanye West, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Future, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, and more. Rodeo also paved the way for a cultural shift in hip-hop.

Travis’ ability to fuse different genres of music and experiment with sounds has influenced a new generation of artists. Rodeo also marked the moment when Travis became a rage-rapper, with his fans adhering to the rock star lifestyle.

“Just seeing a congregation lose their f--king minds to some music, that's the best feeling ever,” Travis said during an interview with Clique. “It's better than any drug, any piece of p----, any friendship, anything you got.”
