Whether you’re a fan of Travis Scott’s rap or not, “Astroworld” is 100% an album worth listening to. The extensive 17 track record appeals to many different hip-hop and rap tastes since one of your favorite musicians is likely among the 18 guest artists who make an appearance.

Drake has certainly come a long way from wheelchair-bound Jimmy Brooks of “Degrassi.” Since becoming a musician, Drake has gone triple platinum and quadruple platinum for his songs. Thus, it is no surprise his latest fourth solo album “Views” recently went quadruple platinum and was the No. 1 album in the country.
