Travis Scott has released a companion film to his latest album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.
The new film, called just “Birds in the Trap,” is a slow-burning exploration of consciousness and mortality set in the urban ruins of Detroit. Travis drives around with his friends after getting into a fight with his girlfriend, only to have his journey cut short by a nasty car crash out of nowhere.
That's when the video takes a turn for the surreal, as Travis stands outside his own body watching himself go into surgery, and then leaves the hospital altogether to join a cyborg enclave in an abandoned building.
He's the Robocop for a new generation, though it doesn't seem like he's about to let himself be used as a super weapon for any kind of government task force. Instead, his cyborg second life seems like the perfect opportunity for him to work out some personal issues.
