For those who’ve been craving stop-motion animation, there are two options currently available. First, there’s the fantasy adventure film “Kubo and the Two Strings” from Laika Entertainment, and then there’s hip hop artist Travis Scott’s latest music video “90210” taken from his album “Rodeo.” Directed by Hype Williams, the video features stop-motion animated action figure of Scott destroying a city like Godzilla and having sex with another action figure. Watch it below.
Travis Scott began his career producing beats before shifting to a lead artist. He released his debut mixtape “Owl Pharoah” in 2013 where it was eventually nominated for Best Mixtape at the BET Hip Hop Awards. He released his second mixtape “Days Before Rodeo” the following year. Scott then released his debut album “Rodeo” from Grand Hustle Records and Epic Records. It received generally positive reviews from critics, with Rolling Stone and Complex placing the album on its Best Rap Albums lists.
Hype Williams has directed numerous music videos for many acclaimed artists, including Kanye West, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, Missy Elliot, Aaliyah, and more. He also directed the feature film “Belly,” starring rapper Nas and DMX, about two violent criminals who experience spiritual awakenings. The film was not critically well received.
Scott’s second album “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight” is scheduled to be released on August 26th from Grand Hustle Records and Epic Records.
