How much is Travis Scott worth?
As of Q4 2020
Jacques Berman Webster II was born in Houston, Texas and was raised by his Grandmother when he was young in a south-central Houston neighborhood. The area was notorious for crime and had an impact on a young Webster who has said “I was always like, ‘I gotta get the f*ck out this sh*t.’ It gave me my edge and it made me who I am today.” – Wiki.
He then moved to to Missouri City, a middle-class suburban area bordering southwest Houston, to live with his parents. His mother worked for Apple and his father ran his own business. Webster graduated high school and attended college for a year before dropping out his sophomore year to fully pursue his music career.
Early Rap Career
In 2008 Webster formed a duo group known as The Graduates with his longtime friend Chris Holloway, the duo released their untitled first EP on the social networking website, Myspace.
Webster then moved from Houston to New York City to begin working with friend Mike Waxx, who owned the music website Illroots. After moving to New York, Scott slept on the floor at his friend’s house and spent most of his time at Just Blaze’s studio. Eventually frustrated in New York and the lack of progression, he moved to Los Angeles, California, after only four months in NY.
In Los Angeles, Webster was abandoned by his friend who had promised to provide housing. His parents cut him off financially and he eventually was forced to relocate back to Houston, where his parents kicked him out of their home. Webster moved back to Los Angeles once again and began to sleep on the couch of a friend who studied at University of Southern California.
