It's lit —Travis Scott and Quavo have finally dropped their joint collection Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho in time for the new year.
It is perhaps the highest-profile joint album of the year.
The new project, which includes features from Quavo's fellow Migos members, Takeoff and Offset, finds Quavo and Scott tackling myriad instrumentals for 13 tracks worth of bangers. If you didn't know, the album title is a reference to each of the rappers' nickname; Quavo is Huncho and Scott's alias is Cactus Jack.
The album cover and all of the images promoting the project were designed by Welsh artist Ralph Steadman, known for being a prolific caricaturistic drawer and being a frontrunner in the 20th century Gonzo movement. Steadman is also the the illustrator of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, in which a pair of drug-fueled friends take a journey through Las Vegas–there are some visible parallels between the two drug related partnerships Steadman has depicted, as his artwork is particularly strange and fitting.

Regardless, he scored a hit with “GUMMO”, one of 11 songs that appears on his debut project, DAY69(February 23, 2018), released via ScumGang. While he showcases potential on the album, he finds himself stuck on clichés.
