Travis Scott has just arguably had his most eventful week since climbing to the top of the rap mountain.
Getting arrested for inciting a riot at his own concert, which left several people injured, having his mug shot go viral, being released on bail, releasing three new tracks, confirming a collaborative album with Migos and Quavo, breaking Kanye West’s record, and then a week later breaking his own new record, and sneaking out on a Chipotle run with girlfriend Kylie Jenner: Travis Scott must be pretty exhausted by now.
Last week, TMZ leaked Travis Scott’s mug shot – and although it’s not as epic as Justin Bieber’s infamous mug shot from 2014, the rapper’s mug shot will certainly go down in history of rap.
Travis Scott was snatched by police officers on May 13 for inciting a riot at his own show in Rogers, Arkansas, after the “Antidote” rapper encouraged the crowd to rush the stage.
Travis Scott’s mug shot, which the rapper has already turned into merch by selling T-shirts that read “Free The Rage,” went viral within hours after its release.
On the now-infamous mug shot, Travis Scott is seen like a dude whose big party was halted by police. With that post-performance spark still visible in his eyes, Scott looks a little miserable, or as a Twitter user put it, the rapper’s face on the mug shot is saying, “really, b*tches?”

Travis Scott reportedly spent only 12 minutes in an Arkansas jail after taking that mug shot. But the rapper’s adventures only began that night.
After the arrest, Travis Scott dropped three new singles and confirmed a collaborative album with Migos and Quavo. The rapper then went to perform his hit single “Goosebumps” a record-breaking 14 times in a row at his Oklahoma City show, breaking the Guinness Book of Records record previously held by Kanye West and Jay Z for performing “N*ggas In Paris” 12 times in 2012.
To celebrate the big record, Travis Scott took his girlfriend Kylie Jenner for a midnight chipotle run on May 21, and the night later the rapper outperformed himself (literally) by breaking his own record and performing “Goosebumps” 15 times at his Cleveland, Ohio concert, according to The Fader.

In addition to the video of Travis Scott performing his hit single 15 times in a row, many of his fans and witnesses of the record-breaking performance took to Twitter to document their excitement over the new Guinness Book of Records achievement.

During their low-key late night Chipotle run, Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner had their hoods up and tried to be as incognito as possible, but guests of a Cleveland Chipotle joint photographed the duo, according to Hollywood Life.
Their romance has come under increased scrutiny, as it’s been only weeks since Kylie Jenner split from her former boyfriend Tyga. The fact that Travis Scott is dating the youngest Kardashian-Jenner sister is his another big achievements lately.
In fact, there’s even talk of Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner getting into a serious relationship, as Kylie even reportedly met with the rapper’s family and the two are reportedly ready to move in together, according to TMZ.
Travis Scott might attempt to break his own record of performing a song more than 15 times in a row when he opens for Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. tour starting in July – though it’s unlikely he would keep the “HUMBLE.” rapper waiting for Scott to perform one song over and over again for more than hour (the length of “Goosebumps” is four minutes).
Travis Scott has a few more weeks of his Birds Eye View tour, so he will have plenty of opportunities to outperform himself.
