How Did Travis Scott Acquire His Wealth?
Travis Scott started his career with his mixtape ‘Owl Pharaoh’ in 2012. The project was released for free download in May 2013 and this gave him a platform to perform in the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas. This soon allowed him to get a deal with Grand Hustle and Epic Records and release his debut studio album – Rodeo.
Rodeo ranked No. 2 on Billboard and even went for a platinum edition. This also allowed Travis to start touring a lot more and eventually his earnings increased as fans loved his music. In 2017, he performed at Coachella which also got him the attention of Kylie Jenner.
While album sales may not be the most fortuitous source of his wealth, Travis does benefit from them in other endeavors. An example can be seen with his album tours which help him gross a ton of money every year. One of the reasons for his success with albums is the number of guest appearances in them by famous stars like Rihanna, 2 Chainz, and Young Thug.
Rodeo for one, has a guest appearance by Kanye West, who is about to be related to Travis when Scott marries Kylie Jenner as West is married to Jenner’s sister Kim Kardashian. This can lead to a profitable relationship between both the rappers with future collaborations and guest appearances in concerts and albums.
Another way his relationship with Kylie can be profitable is that when they are married, their combined income can bring the couple to billionaire status.
His trap album Trap Sing McKnight was a huge success as well, and led to his album Birds. However, Birds was left off the Grammy 2016 list despite having massive success. This gave Scott the motivation he needed to speak louder and he developed Astroworld which sold over 537,000 units in its first week alone.
His collaborative album with JackBoys titled JackBoys was a huge success selling 79K units in the US alone in the year 2019. It also reached Number 1 on the US Billboard charts.
Travis has also been hitting the roof with his earnings from touring which range from $40 to $60 million on an average touring year. His Astroworld tour grossed a total of $53.5 million in 2019. This has greatly helped grow Travis Scott’s net worth.
However, the pandemic of 2020 didn’t put a stop to his earnings. Scott held a virtual concert in the video game Fortnite where the same was done previously by Marshmallow. While the concert was not pay-per-view, it did bring virtual Travis Scott Cactus Jack themed merchandise to the game which was payable. He made an estimated $20 million from the sales.
He also partnered with General Mills to design a box of Reese’s Puffs cereal which were worth $50 each. These sold out in a reported record of 30 seconds.
He had another collaboration with the fashion brand Helmut Lang in 2017 which involved designer clothing ranging from $175 to $1715. His long-time Nike endorsement deal is already quite well known. He makes close to $10 million a year from this as it’s one of the most profitable ones for the brand as well.
Another famous partnership is with McDonald’s where Scott created a Travis Scott meal with special merchandise outfits for the company. This has reportedly paid him $20 million as well.
