He spoke about the meal he’s got at McDonald’s right now, what it was like to shoot a music video at Michael Jordan’s house, and his time as a ballboy for the Houston Rockets.

When asked if any of his NBA friends might know about his job as a ballboy when he was younger, Scott downplayed it but added that he has plenty of cool memories. “I met Kobe there and he signed a ball for me.”

Hold it down for the team players. … We never tell.”

During his time on the show, Travis Scott also shared an inventive performance video for “Franchise” featuring M.I.A. and Young Thug. All three rappers performed in front of flowing white drapes, the clip interspersed with
