Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz & Future Been Trill On “3500”
Travi$ Scott is the “go big or go home” mantra in human form, a walking flame emoji. A few years ago, the dude emerged out of nowhere on tracks with Kanye West and T.I., and he’s since become the rowdiest live act in rap and a sought-after producer thanks to his ear for warped, druggy epics. Thus, it’s not so surprising that “3500,” the first track he has unveiled from his debut album Rodeo, is a nearly eight-minute dirge featuring two of the biggest names in hip-hop.
Future and 2 Chainz join Scott on the cut, with Future Hendrix and La Flame trading mecha-warbled verses, and Tity Boi bodying his verse. The song was produced by Metro Boomin, Mike Dean (hear that robo guitar?), Zaytoven (hear those horror movie music box synths?), Million $ Mano and Allen Ritter.
There seems to be a minor Scott backlash forming on Rap Twitter, but as long as he keeps getting this much talent into the same room for bizarro bangers like this, it’ll be hard for that movement to gain traction. Hear the song below, and grab it on iTunes.
Rodeo is expected to drop soon, and it also features Kanye West and Wondagurl in the credits.
