Popular American rapper Travis Scott has announced his intention to pursue higher education at Harvard University.

The SICKO MODE artist revealed his plan to delve into the world of “Architectural Design” following the conclusion of his current tour.

Known for his numerous hit songs and high-energy performances, Travis Scott has consistently defied expectations. Now, the Grammy-nominated artist is gearing up for a different kind of stage – the classrooms of one of the world’s most prestigious universities.

Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster II, shared his aspirations during a recent interview. He expressed a deep passion for architectural design, describing it as a longstanding interest that he is eager to explore further.

The rapper’s decision to enrol in formal education surprises many fans, who are more accustomed to seeing him in sold-out arenas than in academic settings.

Renowned for its rigorous academic programs, Harvard University is no stranger to welcoming celebrities into its classrooms.

However, Scott’s choice to study architectural design adds a unique twist to the narrative. The artist’s interest in the field has reportedly grown over the years, fueled by a fascination with the intersection of creativity and functionality.

While Scott has achieved immense success in the music industry, he sees education as a valuable opportunity to broaden his horizons and engage in a different form of creative expression.

The rapper emphasized his commitment to learning and expressed excitement about combining his artistic sensibilities with architectural design principles.
