Travi$ Scott's last mixtape, one of the most talked about of last year, as well as his nationwide tour with Young Thug, which, too, has created quite a stir, were both preludes to Rodeo, the long-awaited debut album. The 23-year-old Houston rapper/producer, mentored by Kanye West and T.I., has collaborated with, produced for, and written hits for the best in the business. He made the Freshmen cover in 2013, and though we still haven't got an album from La Flame, he's continued to be the face of hip-hop's new wave, one that knows no boundaries, conventions, or sobriety. 

We just got Rodeo's first single, a dark, chilling banger that's a showcase of just how well connected Travi$ is in today's young scene. We've caught a few hints that we're not far away from what's sure to be a game-shaking debut. 

Here's everything we know about Rodeo-- as well as a few predictions we can only hope for.
