In response to the closing of the Houston, Texas Six Flags amusement park of the same name, Scott created a world of his own with his follow-up to 2015’s Rodeo, managing to land one of the biggest record releases of 2018. Self-awareness shines on Astroworld as Scott’s personal life was a total rollercoaster this year — from that Nicki Minaj drama to welcoming a baby into the world with mega-babe mogul Kylie Jenner.
Travis Scott will perform at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at Little Caesars Arena; 2645 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-7000; 313-presents.com; Tickets are $30.
