Travis Scott Celebrated His Birthday In Excess With a $3 Million Gift to Himself
Many people may know Travis Scott as Kylie Jenner’s ex-boyfriend, but he’s much more than that. Scott is a musician, and while he’s primarily a hip hop artist, he does like to experiment with his sound. This experimentation is partially why he’s a big name in the music world in his own right, and it’s also why he continues to be successful even after splitting up with Jenner. That said, while he is wealthy, his ex-girlfriend is wealthier, but that doesn’t mean that he can’t buy himself nice things too. That’s why, for his 28th birthday, Travis Scott bought himself a $3 million gift.
A look at Travis Scott’s career and personal life
Like many rappers, Scott’s career started from the bottom with mixtapes and other amateur productions. But eventually, in 2012, he got his big break and he signed a record deal. His first album, Rodeo, debuted in 2015, and in the next year, his second album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, was a big hit on the charts.
Not long after this, he started dating Jenner, and soon, the two had a daughter together, Stormi Webster. In 2018, he released his third album, Astroworld, and it was a big hit. The next year, he and Jenner broke up.
In any case, due to his success, he’s currently worth about $40 million. While that’s his net worth, it’s not his income. For example, his Astroworld tour earned him about $65 million. With that much money going into his bank account, he’s been able to buy himself some exotic gifts.
The $3 million Bugatti Chiron birthday present
On April 30th, 2020, Scott turned 28, and he celebrated his birthday by buying himself a $3 million Bugatti Chiron, according to Hot Cars. Like many Bugattis, this was a rare and powerful car. Only 500 of these cars will be made, and that’s part of the reason why they’re so expensive.
Of course, the other reason why they’re so expensive is because of what’s under the hood. Bugatti is also well-known for making some of the most powerful and fastest production cars in the world, and the Chiron is no different. Hot Cars doesn’t know which Chiron trim that Scott bought, but each trim is extremely powerful nonetheless.
For example, the standard Chiron has an 8.0-liter W16 engine that gets about 1,500-hp. This massive and powerful engine, combined with the Chiron’s light weight, allows it to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in about 2.4 seconds. Hot Cars also said that the Chiron can technically hit 300 MPH, but Bugatti limits the Chiron’s top speed to 261 MPH for safety’s sake.
Other expensive cars in Travis Scott’s garage
Scott, like Jenner, loves cars, and his garage has plenty of other fancy and exotic cars. According to Highsnobiety, he also has a Lamborghini Huracan that he got with a custom BAPE-inspired paint job. The Huracan starts at about $260,000, though he obviously spent money to modify his.
Another supercar that he has is the Ferrari 488, and that costs about $330,000. That said, he also likes practical cars. It’s why he also has a relatively standard Range Rover that likely didn’t cost more than its base $90,000 price tag.
And of course, since Jenner loved cars, he also bought her cars as gifts when the two were a pair. Highsnobiety said that he dropped $1.4 million for a Ferrari LaFerrari for her. The LaFerrari is also worth its price tag since it comes with a 6.3-liter V12 hybrid engine that gets almost 950-hp. This powerful engine allows it to hit a top speed of 220 MPH and it can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in about 2.4 seconds.
