Who is Travis Scott?
Jacques Berman Webster II, better known by his stage name Travis Scott was born on April 30, 1991, in Houston Texas. He initially lived with his grandmother in a really bad neighborhood. He then moved to Missouri City with his parents in a middle-class suburban area just off the border of Houston. Scott actively participated in musical theater while in school and attended the University of Texas in San Antonio just before he dropped out to focus on his music.
His stage name is to pay homage to his favorite uncle and Kid Cudi whose real name is Scott Mescudi. Throughout his career, he has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won the Billboard Music Award, and the Latin Grammy Award. (Source: All Music)
