Last Fall, Travis Scott dropped a mini-documentary titled La Flame, which accompanied his latest album Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight and gave fans a behind-the-scenes look into Scott’s life on the road. This week, he takes his long-form visual game to a new level — the Houston emcee-producer has teamed up with Apple Music to release his new (and very multi-layered) short film.
Titled Birds In The Trap (an obvious continuation of the aforementioned album), the 14-minute clip starts off with Scott leaving a party (following a near-fight over spilled liquor, no less) and getting into a heated argument with his girlfriend. Much of the first act is filmed from inside Scott’s car, and the viewer gets to see what feels like an ordinary day for the artist, which includes a run-in with the police, a stop for food and a short drive with an associate. Without giving it away, a critical event occurs, after with the second act of the film enters into an entirely different dimension.
As expected, Birds In The Trap also features various tracks (or pieces of) from Scott’s album, including a portion of the Andre 3000-assisted “Endz” which serves as the film closer. In the end, it’s a remarkable piece from which many people will take different meanings.
