Travis Scott, whose chart-topping collection Astroworld dropped with a bunch of branded merchandise, might plan his next line of merchandise for a high school in his hometown. Scott made the offer to the seniors at Houston’s Dwight D. Eisenhower High School on Wednesday (Sept. 12).
Students caught the “Sicko Mode” rapper’s attention in tweets highlighting three students’ proposed senior shirt plan, which includes a variant of Scott’s “Watch” cove art, Travis responded, “Ill just design them for u guys and send a box thru how about that.”
Obviously, Eisenhower’s students are hype AF. Sandra Vasquez, the senior whose tweet Scott cited in his reaction, disclosed to XXL she couldn’t trust the news.
“We were shook,” Vasquez wrote in a direct message. “We love Travis and all he does for Houston.”
Lyndsy Horta, who designed the first shirt with Itzel Rodriguez and Fernando Coronado, clarified that they thought about approaching the rapper’s camp for authorization to fuse his cover, yet figured he’d never respond.
“We made the shirts out of our love for him,” Horta told XXL. “I had thought about reaching out to ask him for permission but never took a shot at it because I mean, it’s THE Travis Scott.”
After La Flame responded to Vasquez’s tweet, there was a slight drama about the shirt’s designers receiving proper credit. But his tweet made everything work itself out.
“I was devastated because Travis’s music has got me through much things that have occurred & [I] wanted my favorite artist to at least know we thought of them,” Horta wrote in a message. “We spoke with the girl who’s tweet went viral and it’s all love.”
In addition to high school merchandise, Travis Scott is looking to expand his own personal merchandise, as he recently filed documents to trademark S.P.A.C.E.
