Jacques Bermon Webster II (born April 30, 1991), better known by his stage name Travis Scott (formerly stylized as Travi$ Scott), is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. His stage name is the namesake of a favorite uncle combined with the first name of one of his inspirations, Kid Cudi (whose real name is Scott Mescudi).
In 2012, Scott signed his first major-label contract with Epic Records and a publishing deal with Kanye West’s GOOD Music. In April 2013, he signed a joint-recording contract with Epic and T.I.’s Grand Hustle imprint. Scott’s first full-length project, the mixtape Owl Pharaoh, was self-released in 2013. It was followed with a second mixtape, Days Before Rodeo, in 2014. His debut studio album, Rodeo (2015), was led by the hit single “Antidote”. His second album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight (2016), became his first number one album on the Billboard 200. The following year, Scott released a collaborative album with Quavo titled Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho under the group name Huncho Jack.
In 2018, his third studio album, Astroworld, was released to critical acclaim and produced his first Billboard Hot 100 number one single, “Sicko Mode” (featuring Drake).
In late 2019, Scott’s record label Cactus Jack Records released the compilation album JackBoys, which topped the Billboard 200. After the release of his single “Franchise” (featuring Young Thug and M.I.A.) in 2020, Scott became the first artist on the Hot 100 to have three songs debut at number one in less than a year.
Over the course of his career, Scott has become a globally recognized artist and pop culture figure. Along with his highly publicized relationship with American media personality Kylie Jenner, Scott has collaborated with organizations including Nike, Dior, and McDonald’s. In 2017, he founded the record label Cactus Jack Records. Scott has also gained notoriety for controversies and legal issues regarding safety at his concerts. In November 2021, a mass-casualty crowd crush occurred during Scott’s performance at the Astroworld Festival in his hometown of Houston, Texas, resulting in widespread condemnation of the artist. Throughout his career, Scott has achieved four number-one hits on the Billboard Hot 100, along with 80 total charted songs. Additionally, he has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won a Billboard Music Award, Latin Grammy Award, MTV Video Music Award, and multiple BET Hip Hop Awards.
Parents and family
Scott was born to his mother, Wanda Webster and father, Jacques Webster. Scott shares the same parents with his two brothers; Jordan Webster and Joshua Webster.
Travis Scott, 30, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster II, was born and raised in a middle-class suburb near Houston, TX.
He was named after his father, Jacques Webster, who Travis has credited as the reason for his successful music career.
Speaking to Complex Magazine in 2012, Travis revealed that both his father and his grandfather were musicians. “The most ironic thing is my grandfather has his masters in music composition, he was a jazz composer,” he said. “My dad was a musician too, he played more like soul music. He was a drummer and he plays the piano. That’s where I get my whole music theory from, my pops and my grandfather.”
His father, who also owned his own business when Travis was young, received his master’s in political science.
As a three year old, Travis began experimenting with music thanks to a drum set gifted to him by his dad.
Though the two have a great relationship today, Travis revealed that it wasn’t always that way: “Me and my dad used to have fist-fights in front of my friends,” he told Complex.
As for his mother, Wanda Webster, she worked for Apple while Travis was growing up.
The mother and son have always had a solid relationship, and Travis has said that he is eternally grateful for her “patience and courage.”
Jacques Bermon Webster II was born on April 30, 1991, in Houston, Texas. From ages one through six, Webster lived with his grandmother in South Park, Houston. Located in south-central Houston, the neighborhood was notorious for crime and had an impact on a young Webster, “Growing up, my grandmother stayed in the ‘hood so I seen random crazy shit. [I saw] mad bums and crazy spazzed out motherfuckers, I saw people looking weird, hungry, and grimey [sic]. I was always like, ‘I gotta get the fuck out this shit.’ It gave me my edge—[it made me] who I am right now.” Webster moved to Missouri City, a middle-class suburban area bordering southwest Houston, to live with his parents. His mother worked for Apple and his father ran his own business. Webster’s father is also a soul musician and his grandfather was a jazz composer. Webster attended Elkins High School and graduated at seventeen. During high school, he participated in musical theater. Webster then attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, before dropping out his second year to fully pursue his music career.
Does he have any siblings?
Travis has two younger siblings. His sister, Jordan, and his brother, Joshua, are twins who turned 21 this June.
In 2014, Travis revealed that the twins are big fans of his music, and they love to watch him succeed.
Wife and Children
Travis Scott is currently in a relationship with his partner, Kylie Jenner.
Scott began dating media personality and businesswoman Kylie Jenner in April 2017. In February 2018, Jenner gave birth to their daughter. Jenner appeared in the music video for “Stop Trying to Be God”, from Scott’s third studio album Astroworld. They broke up in September 2019, but quarantined together during the COVID-19 pandemic for the sake of their daughter and ended up rekindling their relationship. On September 7, 2021, after weeks of speculation, Jenner revealed that she and Scott were expecting their second child. Jenner gave birth to their son in February 2022.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott share two children together: daughter Stormi Webster and son Aire Webster.
