[Interviewer] Alright, so we got these lighters ...

Because it's lit.

[lighter clicks]

[dramatic music]

Hey, yo, what up? I'm Travis Scott. These are my essentials.

Well, brown is the future.

Colors of life, color of my heartbeat,

color of natural being, peace.

All things brown and company, tranquility in me, I guess.

It's like a pull on earth.

From a design standpoint, like I said,

I just like to share pieces of my brain

and, you know, kind of splatter it out.

As far as, like, my ethos,

it just kind of paints the walls in my universe.

It's my phone.

Porsche made these Blackberries.

This one's like a gold one.

I got it a while ago, like years ago,

and I just, you know, write in here.

Write scripts, treatments.

[dramatic music]

[Interviewer] All right, so we got these lighters ...

Because it's lit, bitch. You know what I'm saying?

You never know when you gotta set shit off, you know?

Times might get dark.

Somebody might need a light and I'm always there,

though, I'm always the one asking for a lighter.

I think I misplace 'em them to keep it down there.

Cactus Farms is a weed brand that we started

and it's amazing.

Best gas on earth.

And peyote.

[lighter clicks] [flames roar]

Big Red.

It's me and my dad's favorite gum.

Track meets. Remind me to track meets.

[Interviewer] Did you do, like, the challenge as a kid?

You lick it and stick it on your forehead?

Oh, nah.

I used to take the full when it used to be in full

and make grills out of it though.

Shit fire.

No pun intended.

[dramatic music]

I mean, I listen to my music on different formats.

This is one of my main playbacks,

tape player.

Got it in Japan. I love tape players.

I love tapes.

I don't know, this might just be a personal thing,

but just gets me through the day.

It's just raw.

CDs are amazing. I still buy CDs.

[Interviewer] What you got in there right now?

Something exclusive.

Can't really talk about it.

The T3. My favorite camera.

I remember having this for a while.

Take a lot of photos with this.

[camera shutter clicks]

It feels like how I saw it, but more like a movie I guess.

[Interviewer] What are you drawn to?

What do you find yourself taking pictures of?

Things that make me happy.

I don't really take photos with my iPhone, so.

This gets the job done.

[dramatic music]

Gotta keep a Mophie.

My phone's always dying,

so somebody threw it in there.

It's just cool, though.

There's like a fuckin' gauge on it, like a gas meter.

[engine roars]

Let's you know how serious it is.

And it tells you when it's loaded and when you're depleted.

I need to charge it up. I need some fuckin' gas.


Well this is my bag for whenever I'm on the go.

My wallet. Wallets.

It's a blind wallet. For what.

A lighter wallet, or some shit.

Just passport.

I actually need a know one once I finish.

Like two weeks ago, I think I was in Rome or something.

Oh, no, Greece.

Stamps started getting over stamped on.

Just time to get a new one, I guess.

Classic baseball hat.

Yeah, really, this is just like one of my favorite hats

and you know, I never know

when I just might jump off a cliff and land in some water

and might need a hat.

I just keep a pair of sunglasses.

None in particular if I want 'em faded.

[Travis chuckles]

Keep out the rays in utopia.

Bright as fuck in here.

[dramatic music]

I mean, these are like a special headphone.

I made these specifically for my ears.

Listen back to music again on these.

This is just a different playback.

These are just designed different than your normal joints.

I got normal ones now. I got these,

very special.

These things.

Seltzer. The best fuckin' seltzer in town, actually.

It's my favorite. Keep one on deck.

Yeah, gotta keep a cold one.

This shit motherfuckin' cold.

Get me right, midday action.

Yeah, I designed the can and we got a citrus flavor,

we have a mango and a tropical fruit punch.

[can pops] Thank you very much.

Man, you fuck with fruit punch?

That shit bustin'.

[Travis chuckles]

[dramatic music]

Yo, what up? It's Travis Scott.

Thank you, GQ.

These are my essentials.

Peace, motherfuckas.
