Travi$ Scott – “Days Before Rodeo” review

Just a little over a year after his 1st mixtape Owl Pharaoh, GOOD Music in-house producer/Grand Hustle Records signee Travi$ Scott is returning with another mixtape & it’s a prelude to his debut album Rodeo. The tape kicks off with “Days Before Rodeo: The Prayer”, where Travi$ is talking about his newfound fame over an upbeat instrumental from WondaGurl. The next track “Mamacita” with Rich Homie Quan & Young Thug is generic from the trap beat to the lyrics about a “fine bitch”. The song “Drugs You Should Try It” has a dreamy beat, but the way he talks about being high on here is so boring. The song “Don’t Play” with Big Sean talks about them needing that paper & while the beat isn’t bad, the way the hook on here was executed is excruciating. The track “Grey” has a mellow beat & lyrically, Travi$ is sincerely talking about a friend of his who’s now in prison. The bonus track “BACC” has an explosive beat from Metro Boomin’ & while I do appreciate Travi$ talking about his return, I feel like it’s out of place. Like I can totally picture this track coming after the opener “Days Before Rodeo: The Prayer”. And once again, the execution of the hook on here is God awful. While I’m not gonna deny that this is a slight improvement over his last mixtape, I still can’t say I’m all that crazy about it. Sonically, most of this is just average

Score: 3/5
