Breaking: Travis Scott To Premier ‘Utopia’ Album At The Pyramids of Giza, Reveals ‘Five Individual Artworks’

Houston’s legendary rapper, record producer and songwriter Travis Scott, born Jacques Bermon Webster II, has finally opened up about his fourth studio album “Utopia”. The highly anticipated LP, which has been teased by Scott numerous times across the past two years, will be premiered at the historic Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.

Notably, the LP serves as the follow-up to his cult rap album “Astroworld”. The iconic rap record, home to sprawling ‘La Flame’ classics including “Sicko Mode” featuring Drake, “Butterfly Effect”, “Stargazing”, “No Bystanders” featuring Post Malone, “Carousel” and more, was released over five years ago.

However, Travis Scott’s upcoming album, which is expected to drop soon after the Egyptian premier, doesn’t have a “confirmed release date” yet. Scott will perform the full-length album at the Pyramids on July 28th.

On Friday last week, an Egyptian outlet “CairoScene” first posted a story about Scott “launching” his forthcoming album in Egypt on July 25th. “American rapper Travis Scott just announced that the official launch for his upcoming album, “Utopia” will be hosted at the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt this July 25th”.

However, the article was deleted within hours.

Besides announcing the Egyptian premiere of “Utopia”, Scott has further hinted towards at least 5 distinct artworks for the forthcoming LP. They’re yet to be released by the “Wit Da Racks” emcee. However, Scott has revealed exclusive “Utopia” merch which consists of deftly curated t-shirts, vinyls and CDs. You can check them out here.

Scott’s album arrives after the tragic deaths at the “Astroworld Festival” in 2021. Organized by Scott’s ‘Cactus Jack’, the massive concert led to 8 fatal deaths and over a hundred casualties. The Houston event’s fallout led to a series of lawsuits against the hard-hitting emcee and was one of the biggest reasons behind holding back the release of “Utopia”.

Last week, Scott was finally freed after a grand Houston jury didn’t hold the rapper “criminally responsible” for the crowd crush that reportedly killed “ten people” during the concert. The victims, one of which included a 9-year-old Ezra Blount, died from compressional asphyxia after a crowd of over 50,000 began pushing towards the performing area.

“It is tragic that 10 innocent people were killed while trying to enjoy an evening of music and entertainment, something many of us do routinely and without a second thought to our safety. But a tragedy isn’t always a crime, and not every death is a homicide,” Houston’s district attorney Kim Ogg said at the time.

While Scott took a five-year hiatus from releasing a full-length studio album, the Houston native consistently dropped numerous guest verses across albums.

Most recently, Travis Scott linked up with Lil Uzi Vert on the “Pink Tape” LP, Young Thug’s “Business is Business”, Don Toliver’s “Love Sick” LP, Trippie Redd’s “Mansion Muzik”, Drake & 21 Savage‘s “Her Loss”, Metro Boomin‘s “Heroes & Villains”, SZA’s “SOS” album and more.

Look out for Travis Scott’s massive premiere of “Utopia” at the Pyramids of Giza.
