Psychedelics got me goin' crazy (oh no)
"Stargazing"

"Don't you open up these tropes, though..."

  • A God Am I: Defied in "Stop Trying to Be God", where Travis denounces the god complexes that various celebrities have and insists on them being loyal to those who are closest to them.
  • Album Title Drop:
    • Rodeo is mentioned in the last line of "Apple Pie"
    • Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight gets its title from a line in "pick up the phone." However, the line is actually "Birds in the Trap Sing Brian McKnight" note 
    • ASTROWORLD gets namedropped on the single "Watch".

  • Auto-Tune: A huge factor in Travis' vocals.
  • Drugs Are Good: One of his biggest hits is about hotboxing note .
  • Epic Rocking: "3500" crosses seven and a half minutes, and the beat doesn't switch until 6:22.
  • Identical Stranger: Downplayed; his resemblance to ASAP Rocky largely depends upon French braids, but they both make t/rap music with a trippy edge and can become upset if mistaken for one another.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Of his solo tapes and albums, only "Days Before Rodeo" has features on less than half of the tracklist.
  • Mood Whiplash: Travis is fond of switching the beat on his songs. One of the best examples comes from "Sicko Mode," where he uses three different beats AND a breakdown section within five minutes.
  • Pungeon Master: Sometimes fancies himself as such. However, when one of your bars is calling white girls snow bunnies like it's "Christmas-Easter..."
  • Shout-Out
      Advertisement:
    • Likes to reference Houston and Houston rappers like Bun B of UGK.
    • "...jumpin up, feel like I'm Moby."
  • Soprano and Gravel: Whenever Travis is with The Weeknd.
    • To a lesser extent, him with Young Thug or Quavo or his Auto-Tune voice with his rapping voice.
  • Spiritual Successor: Travis has called ASTROWORLD a continuation of Rodeo.
  • A Wild Rapper Appears!: Since his music tends to be focused more on his Auto Crooning, his rapping or other peoples' rap verses have this effect.
