Travis Thompson is a rapper from Burien, raised by a Navajo father and white mother, from one of the most diverse school districts in the nation. Thompson’s playful sound is guided by rhymes that combine evocative description and candid emotion. After being featured on Macklemore’s “Corner Store,” he made his major-label debut with the 2019 EP Runaways. In a short amount of time, Travis has created a come up story and garnered a cult-like following that’s impossible to ignore.
