Travis Scott Launches His Own Record Label, Cactus Jack Records
Travis Scott recently sat down with Numéro Magazine to talk about the launch of his very own record label, Cactus Jack Records.
He says of the label, “I’m not doing it to have financial control over my music. I want first and foremost to help other artists, launch new names, to provide opportunities. I want to do for them what happened to me, but better. By better I mean no bullsh*t. No lying to the artists about album release dates or the budgets of videos and albums.”
As an artist who was discovered by Kanye West, it's no surprise that Travis brought him up in the discussion; “Kanye, he’s my buddy. When I got the chance to meet him I was so nervous. He listened to my music and thought it was cool. Two weeks later he sent me an email and I found myself on the way to Paris to take part in his Yeezus album.”
Travis Scott is a well-respected artist who has produced beats for many other musicians, so we can only assume that he has great things in store for the future of the label.
