Travis Scott Isn’t One For ‘Marketing’ + ‘Branding’ Himself

Grammy-nominated Travis Scott was recently named Adweek‘s Creator Visionary of the Year. In the magazine’s cover feature story on Scott, he says he’s not even speaking the same language as those who would give him such an honor.

“I don’t like words like ‘branding’ and ‘marketing. I just wasn’t ever really into it, you know? I guess I’m a naturalist in that sense.”

“I’m just more about putting out very cool things that inspire me and I hope one day inspire other people. I’m trying to bring a utopian effect … hoping to inspire the next person to just get creative or even just live their life in an aesthetically pleasing, vibed-out way.”

Travis Scott Breaks New Records W/ CACTI

In March 2021, Scott made history with his CACTI alcoholic beverage. A spokesperson revealed CACTI had the “highest rate of sale in a debut for any variety pack in Anheuser-Busch Seltzer history.” Travis Scott predicted this would happen on Instagram several months ago, getting fans hyped up for the release, which has clearly been a hit.

Not only that, the rep tells us Cacti broke into the top 5 seltzer category, with sales volume allegedly overtaking marketshare of seltzers from VIZZY, Coors and more. When it comes to first week sales, the rep tells us Cacti had a higher sales volume than White Claw Variety Pack No. 2 as well as seltzers from Coors and Mikes Hard in their first weeks combined. Thanking everyone for their support, Travis tells us, “The reaction to the product has the team and I motivated to go even harder as we plan out what’s next for the brand. We are just getting started.” (TMZ)
