Travis Scott Donates $100k To Houston Arts Education Agency
As platinum album ASTROWORLD and its tour continue to see success, Travis Scott hasn't forgotten about where he comes from.
According to the Chronicle, some of the money will go to a fashion design program (students will reportedly recreate Michelle Obama's ‘Milly’ gown) and a drone racing competition.
Scott learned about the agency when they participated in his Astroworld festival, an event featuring a Ferris wheel and other carnival games in what used to be the Six Flags Astroworld theme park. Scott hopes to have the festival every year.
ASTROWORLD itself is an ode to Houston and the theme park. "[ASTROWORLD] might be the best music that I made. I have two records on the album that are like, man, they are the best," Scott told GQ in 2017. "They tore down 'AstroWorld' to build more apartment space. 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.”
