Rap Superstar Travis Scott Offers to Design, Send Shirts for Fan's High School Graduation
We already detailed how Travis Scott used the sale of his new album merchandise to climb the Billboard charts. Now, it looks like the musician is taking the natural next step and pivoting into ... high school graduation merchandise?
According to Page Six, a student at Eisenhower High School in Houston tweeted at Scott asking for permission to use his "Astroworld" cover art for the senior class' graduation T-shirts. The student also shared a mockup of the sweatshirt she had drafted.

Instead of just giving permission, Scott decided to make this high schooler's dreams come true (unlike the Mr. Scott on "The Office"):
Ill just design them for u guys and send a box thru how about that. ? https://t.co/R6On3lfHlR

With the rapper opting to design the shirts himself, this graduating class will have some of the most on-trend, on-demand senior T-shirts ever.
But why would Scott want to spend his time designing high school clothing?
According to TMZ, he's been in talks to create his own clothing line for some time now. Maybe he's looking to get some experience under his belt before launching the official line. We already know his album merchandise was a huge success, so we have no doubt whatever he comes up with for this senior class will be creative and probably go viral.
In terms of his own private label, the trademark Scott filed only applies to rights for "S.P.A.C.E" so it won't be in connection with his "Astroworld" merchandise. He also applied for the rights to "S.P.A.C.E 1991" and "S.P.A.C.E 2001." What's unclear is when he plans to unveil the merchandise, or what this merchandise will look like.
