Travis Scott’s sophomore album Birds in the Trap Sing Mcknight, is a solid body of work, but it falls short in advancement of personal sound. One of the problems I have with Birds is that there are a lot of good parts of songs, (21 Savage’s verse on the track “Outside”) however the rest of the track falls short. While the topics are kept typical for rap, Travis Scott offers a new perspective with his new found fame. He does this with little risk, sticking to the auto-tune crooning that made him famous. While I enjoy his style, risk and forward thinking for his sound would’ve potentially made the album much better. This album was meant to feed his fans, and it definitely gets the job done.
Best songs: “way back”(best song on the album), “through the late night (feat. Kid Cudi)”, “beibs in the trap (feat. Nav)”
Songs to Skip: “sweet sweet”, “Coordinate (feat. Blac Youngsta)”, “first take (feat. Bryson Tiller)”
If you like these, you’ll like Birds: Rodeo by Travis Scott, Yeezus by Kanye West, any Atlanta trap music
Final Score: 63/100
