Jacques Webster, known professionally as Travis Scott is a rapper/songwriter from Houston TX. He began his career as a record producer and eventually entered  a partnership with friend Chris Holloway, with the two calling themselves The Graduates. In 2009, the duo released their first untitled EP on MySpace. In 2010, they joined OG Chess in a group they called The Classmates. In 2011, The Classmates released the albums “Buddy Rich” and “Cruising USA”, with Scott doing all the production work on both projects. In 2011, the group disbanded following some financial disputes. Scott was later befriended and helped by Mike Waxx, who owned a website called Illroots, whose purpose was to record and release music. He has since released the albums “Rodeo” (2015) and “Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight” (2016).
