Over the weekend, Travis Scott hit the stage in his hometown of Houston for his inaugural Astroworld Festival. Following the turn up, the city declared November 18th Astroworld Day.
According to XXL, Travis Scott made a visit to City Hall to accept a special proclamation that officially recognized the special day in Houston.
Scott said in his acceptance speech, “I grew up here my whole life. I was inspired by Astroworld. In ’05 when they took it away, it kind of like took a big piece of my heart away. I didn’t have anywhere to go. I just wanted to kind of bring back that feeling and give this city something so they can always have something fun to do.”
He continued, “One thing about Texas, man. We just stand strong. We don’t need nothing special as long as we have each other and somewhere to mess around and just have fun, we can get to it.”
As you all know, Travis Scott named his latest album “Astroworld,” and it reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
