Is Travis Scott Signed to Grand Hustle?

Since then, his career has taken off. Many fans still speculate whether or not Travis remained with Grand Hustle during the last album run. The confusion regarding his relationship with Grand Hustle is caused by Travis's close ties with Kanye West and his almost never being photographed publicly with T.I. Since collaborating on ‘Upper Echelon' in 2013, the two haven't released a single together. 

T.I. wasn't too happy about his artist performing at the Super Bowl halftime show. “Each individual has the right to decide for himself, or he can decide to be selfless. Nobody can dictate when someone should be selfless,” T.I. lamented.

As far as reports are concerned, Astroworld may be his last album with Tip's label. However, this is not true. Travis Scott's latest release, ‘Highest in The Room,' is being played on radio stations across America with Grand Hustles and Cactus Jack labels.

That means it's likely the first taste of his forthcoming fourth studio album.

Is Travis Scott Still Signed to Epic and Very Good Beats?

As part of Good Music's production wing Very GOOD Beats, Scott joined Epic Records in 2013 as part of his contract with the label. Their collaborations include tracks on Cruel Summer and Yeezus, as well as Madonna and Scott's own albums.
