Who Is Travis Scott? 3 Things to Know About the Rapper Who Just Welcomed a Baby with Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, on Feb. 1
“I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst,” shared Jenner.
Jenner first linked up with Scott in early 2017 – after splitting from heron-again, off-again boyfriend Tyga last April – and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Here are three things to know about the 25-year-old Texas-born rapper:
1. He’s Worked with Some of the Biggest Artists in Hip-Hop
The G.O.O.D Music and Grand Hustle signee has definitely made his mark on the industry.
In fact, Scott, né Jacques Webster, gushed about working with Jay to New York radio station Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning in September.
“I must say, I’ve been in the studio with JAY-Z, dog … I thought the freestyle thing was a myth. But, bro!” he said, noting the rumor that the rapper rarely writes down his lyrics.
“This dude, I’ve never seen him pick up a pen … this dude’s freestyling the whole album.”
2. He Was Previously Linked to Rihanna
In 2015, Rihanna and the rapper were spotted out and about together several times during the year — including a “steamy” PDA session in New York, a source said then.
3. He’s Been Close with the Jenner Sisters for Some Time Now
“She worked the room and spent a lot of time with Travis in the beginning,” a source said of Scott then, noting that he performed at the party.
