In December, Travis Scott teamed with Saint Laurent for a special compilation put out as a limited vinyl release. The 12-track project, which features songs hand-selected by Travis, is now available to stream on Apple Music, as hosted by Vogue. The playlist features a variety artists that reflect the rapper’s influences. The first track is Big Moe’s “Barre Baby,” the opening the late Houston legend’s debut album City Of Syrup, one the most beloved and important projects from Travis’ hometown. The H-Town history continues with Fat Pat’s “25 Lighters,” before moving on to some more recent cuts from Young Thug, 21 Savage and Cardi B. Travis’ own “sweet sweet” later appears, before the playlist moves from rap to R&B to electronic, featuring a run that includes Frank Ocean, Toro Y Mois, and James Blake. Two Travis’ heroes Kid Cudi and Kanye West appear deep cuts from Man On The Moon and 808s & Heartbreak, before things close out with Travis’ guest spot on SmokePurpp’s “Fingers Blue.”
