Travis Thompson is here to put on for his hometown of Burien, a suburb in Washington. If you see him, he’s probably rocking an AMBAUM chain, representing the street he grew up on — also the inspiration to most of his music. His debut album YOUGOOD? represents the good times and the bad, mixing fun-filled tunes with real-life experiences. In addition to his success signing to Epic Records, the “Safe” rapper also boasts a cosign from Macklemore, hailing from his home state.
Most recently, Travis unleashed his RUNAWAYS EP and stops by Power 106 for our Now You Know series.
Speaking on the film to coincide with his album, he states, “While I was writing songs, I was coming up with video treatments. Me and the director Dylan Fout got to work. We just gathered all the homies. We realized if we do this and we work every single day, we can make a little film. We used every resource we had. We made it happen. It was a lot of work, but it’s a good sum of what the album’s supposed to feel like.”
