Travis Scott released his second album September 2nd of 2016. Titled Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. His producer for this album was Cahemere Cat. This album was the follow up from his first album "Rodeo". In the new album Birds in the Trap Sing Mcknight gives some weird moments in the songs but the beats and the lyrics are really nice and smooth. My top two songs of this album are sweet sweet and goosebumps . This is one of my favorite rappers because his music it puts me in a good mood.

Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight is an album with all types of moods and personally I love this new album because it was nothing but good music. If I had to chose my top two they are Sweet Sweet and Goosebumps. Those songs have managed to get me in such a good mood every time I listen to them. They get me excited and happy. In the song "sweet sweet" it talks about a girl and he refers her that she is as sweet as chocolate (cocoa) but he loves to do drugs cocaine (coco) in the song the sound very familiar, a good girl but loves the party and drug life. "Goosebumps" in this song he talks about how his body reacts from the impact that his girl, she helps him calm down and when she not with him he gets a sense of fear that she might be doing something wrong.

The beats he and his producer came up with for this album are gold. The manage to put you in a good and party mood it also helps me when I am getting ready or working out. His songs have been on the top songs, new music to hear and best of the week, in Apple music. The album gives out a lot of partying, his friends and where they grew up. It was a great way for you to see Travis Scott life through his music and all the projects he has going on with his friends. His music is very good and his beats are fantastic as well I recommend you listen to him if you haven't had a chance to listen to him.

I too really like Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight. I think it is Travis' most complete project. I thought that in his projects prior to Birds, he was all over the place, song to song. I thought Rodeo was phenomenal but it lacked the overarching theme that an album is supposed to entail. His mixtapes, Day's Before Rodeo and Owl Pharoah, were unbelievable mixtapes, but that's all they were-- mixtapes.

Bird's however, has the production value of his prior projects, but includes the story telling and lyricism that leads me to believe he could one day become someone as influential as Kanye West or Jay-Z. In my opinion, Bird's is the album that Travis fantasized making ever since he got into the music industry. He includes features from his favorite artists, such as: Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Cassie, and The Weeknd. I think it's especially evident in the way that he uses each feature. It seems as though he knows how to use each artist better than they do on their own material.

Overall I would give the album an 8.5/ 10, primarily because I think Travis is still developing as an artist. His mastery of production is evident, but he still needs to work on his lyricism and overarching themes in his albums.

I've heard all of his work and I love him to be honest. None of his albums were bad atleast in my opinion; and to come out with this new one that's even 10 times better. Whenever something gets released I like to really listen to it loud while driving in the car so only the music's around me. I liked every single track differently! Extremely amazing how he included Kid Cudi - which takes you back to the old days. (Track: Through the Late Night). Then loved how he included new underground artist Nav on the track "Biebs in the Trap" which keeps you in the present.
