Inhabit Travis Scott’s Life With His Short Film La Flame
On the heels of his new album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, Travis Scott has shared a short film documenting his life and times. La Flame is a montage of concert and tour footage, behind-the-scenes video, fly-on-the-wall studio scenes, and fan testimonials created by videographer Tucker Tripp and Scott himself. It features three songs from McKnight—“way back,” “through the late night,” and “goosebumps”—as well as “Antidote” from Rodeo, and “The Hooch.”
At various moments, the film finds Scott working on beats, testing out the floating stage at Kanye West’s Life of Pablo show, recording his Beats 1 radio show, and convincing Tripp to crowdsurf while holding the camera. West, producer Mike Dean, Migos’ Quavo, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Garnett, and a bewigged Puff Daddy all make cameo appearances. Watch the 19-minute short below.
