Travis Scott’s incredible and career-defining year is chronicled as the Cactus Jack star covers Rolling Stone. In the cover story by Jonah Wiener, the 26-year-old’s 2018 run is highlighted, lead by his platinum-selling album ASTROWORLD. The feature touches on Scott’s upbringing in Houston, his family and father’s musical background, the inaugural Astroworld Festival earlier this year and the importance of that day after the famed amusement park closed in 2005.
