Trying something new. Still going to drop some playlist style post, but going to also highlight some joints coming through the inbox. This is giving me those Warped Tour vibes and really perfect for the Emo season that has been the past few years. Travie says what we all are feeling in this one. Plus he touches on some pretty personal issues he has been facing.
About Travie McCoy
Growing up as a bi-racial kid in Geneva, NY, he grew up loving hardcore and punk rock, along with hip hop and R&B, and instead of choosing one lane, he created a genre-bending sound that changed what modern alternative and pop looked like. He formed Gym Class Heroes, a group that found a community in the alternative/punk space, but shot into the mainstream with hits like the 3x Platinum “Cupid’s Chokehold” and “Stereo Hearts.” But as a solo artist, he hit new heights, and jump-started the careers of a number of up and coming artists, with songs like the 4x Platinum, “Billionaire ft. Bruno Mars.” With his signing to the powerhouse independent label, Hopeless Records, Travie McCoy is ready to be in control of his life and career, however vulnerable and scary that may feel. Having come out on the other side, Travie wants to share his story with the world, “Being myself and completely transparent throughout my entire career hopefully inspires everyone to do exactly the same. Hopefully all the trials and tribulations that I went through helped pave the way for the next generation.”
