Travis Scott rarely does interviews, unless it's under unprecedented circumstances like this. He is launching a new label.

The rapper sat down with Numéro magazine to unveil that he's launching Cactus Jack Records before he heads out on tour. And that's probably why it took him so long to release any dates.

"I'm not doing it to have financial control over my music," he said. "I want first and foremost to help other artists, launch new names, to provide opportunities.
