The rapper started out with the Frank Ocean-featured track “Carousel” before launching into the hyped “Sicko Mode.” As expected, the crowd went wild hearing the Astroworld songs, with the video giving us a little teaser of what we can expect from Scott in forthcoming tour circuits.

Listening to Travis Scott’s new album Astroworld feels a lot like entering the phantasmagorical theme park depicted in its David LaChappelle-designed cover art. Unexpected guests and surprising sounds jump out at you from every angle—there’s vocals and production by everyone from Drake and Juice WRLD to Tame Impala and John Mayer.

Astroworld is far more indebted to Scott’s hometown than any of his previous records. The album takes its title from a Houston theme park originally intended to complement the Astrodome, before it was purchased by Six Flags in 1975. The park closed in 1999. “They tore down AstroWorld to build more apartment space,” he told GQ Style. “That’s what it’s going to sound like, like taking an amusement park away from kids. We want it back. We want the building back. That’s why I’m doing it. It took the fun out of the city.” The album positions itself as a pleasure-filled playground for a star-studded cast, but it should also be considered a tribute to the Texas rap community.

[Intro: Big Tuck]
What’s crackin’?
You already know who it is
Ya boy, Big Tuck
Freight Train Tuck
Astroworld is now in session, ya understand?
I’m the dean of this here
I got this

[Verse 1: Travis Scott]
Yeah, yeah
Parked at the Days Inn, ain’t takin’ no days in (yeah)
Don’t need a vacation, I need a replacement (alright)
Bustin’ the lights out soon as we came in (it’s lit)
What’re they talkin’ about, what’s it pertainin’ (yeah, yeah)
Need me a therapist to ask if I’m aging (yeah)
This M-E-D it feel caved in (yeah)
All of my demons invadin’
I live paranoid, hesitatin’
They bitin’, they bitin’, the cadence (skrt, skrt)
Go out their way, it’s okay
Just lock the doors at the basement
I got a gate with my face in it

[Chorus: Frank Ocean]
Brand new, brand new, this new place I got to
New world, new sky that’s so blue it’s black too
New growth, new growth, all these fades I outgrew
Blue bands, blue bands, get my cash from drive-thru
Boy, you’re too flash, too flash, keep the flash minimal
Bitch, I’m too cold, too cold, see my breath visible

[Verse 2: Travis Scott]
Yeah
Icy cold, it is so, it is so icy cold, yeah
Mixing the water with cheese is making the money get mold, yeah
Trying to be like gang, you better go get it in Vogue, yeah
Put 84’s on lanes, I ride by you think it is spokes
We did it, we said it, we spoke, yeah
We put it out, thought it was smoke, this 504, uh
This is at home, right down the street, from Alamo

 

 

[Verse 3: Frank Ocean & Travis Scott]
Moving in silence don’t mean it’s movin’ slow
Even though the speed got old
Sprinkling methamphetamines
On the leaves like the snow
Bet they soak
I’m a new species, tail swings on the road
Come to reach and lose both
Got springs like a toad
Some for free in the tote
Saké drown like round white diamonds
Carats (yah)
Copy sound, might got two wings, parrot (alright!)
Landing down wind, caught two wings (it’s lit!)
Talons scrape, hit the stage, two wings (yeah, yeah!)
Better pray, better pray, two wings (straight up!)

[Chorus: Frank Ocean]
Brand new, brand new, this new place I got to
New world, new sky that’s so blue it’s black too
New growth, new growth, all these fades I outgrew
Blue bands, blue bands, get my cash from drive-thru
Boy, you’re too flash, too flash, keep the flash minimal
Bitch, I’m too cold, too cold, see my breath visible
