Hollywood, CA – A giant Travis Scott head appeared on top of Amoeba Music in Hollywood on Friday (July 27), sparking rumors that the highly anticipated Astroworld was inching closer to reality.
An Amoeba Hollywood employee told HipHopDX, “The guys that put it up said the album will be coming out later in the year. We just don’t know anything. Label person called us, they’e calling it an awareness campaign. There’s no information online or anything. It’s just a fun promo kind of thing.”

Crazy n kinda creepy ⚡🔥 @travisscott
Astroworld was included on DX’s 10 Most Anticipated Rap Albums list earlier this week. Scott has been building anticipation for the project since late 2016.
Fans are hoping a cryptic Instagram post from super producer Mike Dean means Astroworld is in the mixing stage. On Thursday (July 26), he shared a photo of recording equipment with the caption, “#MIXMODE.”
As the rumors started to circulate online, Dean retweeted a post from a Twitter user who was attentively waiting for the mixing and mastering of Astroworld to be finished.

Astroworld will serve as the follow-up to 2016’s Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight. The project debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart upon its release.
