Atroworld rapper Travis Scott has spoken out about his highly-anticipated upcoming project Utopia, and after two years of stringing along patient fans, the album will seemingly be making its way onto streaming platforms as the musician begins a press run. Following his electrifying sold-out performances in Europe earlier this year, The artist has now ceased live performances and has begun speaking to publications about the deep meaning and context of the forthcoming body of work.
In a recent conversation with PIN-UP magazine, Scott was asked to define one word of his choosing for each letter of the alphabet. For the letter “U,” the Houston native chose the title of his project and gave his personal and intriguing definition of it.
Carefully choosing his words, Scott explained: “Utopia is something that people feel is so far-fetched and out of reach, some perfect state of mind.” He continued: “But you create it yourself. There are people who achieve Utopia every day. They may not be the richest people with the dopest cribs, but it’s a utopia wherever they are, and that’s the most you can have.”
Scott proceeded to explain how he enters a state of Utopia when he’s carefully crafting a project, revealing: “With every album I live in these worlds in my mind — I’m trying to show people experiences where utopian things can exist, and you can enjoy yourself and have a good time. They can create energy that spews out magical things — new cures, new buildings, new avenues for people to move forward. People need to see that Utopia is real.”
Scott has been teasing his soon-to-be-released Utopia album for months now. Earlier this month, the ‘SICKO MODE’ musician previewed Utopia for the Houston Astros baseball team. Furthermore, he participated in an interview with FOX 26 Houston’s Sports correspondent Mark Berman, during which he told the presenter, “It’s on the way now, Mark.”
During his conversation with Berman, the lyricist disclosed that audio engineers were in the process of mastering the body of work. So far, fans know that Utopia is set to feature Pharrell as well as other high-profile names such as Drake and Future.
Having just featured on Chase B’s single ‘Ring Ring’ alongside Quavo, Don Toliver and Ty Dolla $ign, perhaps this time Webster may be ready to show Utopia to the world. You can hear Travis Scott’s latest lyrical appearance in the video below.
