Like "Rodeo," "Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight" is another collaborative spectacle. Here are the 5 best guest features on the album, ranked.

Travis Scott's debut album, last year's Rodeo, was packed with guest features, coming from the likes of Quavo, Future, Chief Keef, Justin Bieber, and more. In a time when it seems like most stars of his caliber are keeping the guest spots to a minimum, Scott has remained intent on maintaining a collaborative mindset. With him, his own skills as a rapper and singer have been less intriguing than his ability to include his most talented friends in on his ideas and be the driving force behind innovative collabs -- not to mention his finesse behind the boards, too. 

The many delays that La Flame's devoted ragers suffered through were quickly forgotten when he began playing Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight for the first time live on his ".Wav" radio show. Though there were no features listed on the initial tracklist, the first four songs boasted surprise appearances from Andre 3000 and Kid Cudi, along with a motivational intro speech from Blac Youngsta -- no album should be without one. It was soon clear that Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight would be another collaborative spectacle, and indeed, the game's hottest talents -- some expected along with some total surprises -- continued to pop up throughout the 14-track album. 

No easy task, we decided to rank the 5 best guest features on Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. Read our summaries of each one and then share your dissenting opinions in the comments. Stream the album here
