The young Houston rapper and producer Travi$ Scott is as much a curator as anything else, and his 2014 mixtape Days Before Rodeo showed that he knows what he’s doing on that score. Stereogum readers seemed remarkably pissed that I didn’t name it Mixtape Of The Week or put it on my list of the year’s best rap albums, so the guy’s got an audience. Scott just announced an American tour with Young Thug and Metro Boomin, and he’s also shared a couple of songs that bring him together with some other looming rap figures. On “Nothing But Net,” he teams up with Thug and with the rising Drake protege PARTYNEXTDOOR. And on “High Fashion,” he gets together with Future, the guy basically gave him his “straight up” ad-lib. They’re both squirming, nervous, uneasy Southern rap bangers, and you can hear both below.
