Travis Scott hooks up with his idol Kid Cudi for a song about late nights and partying. This song is the second time these two have collaborated on Birds.
Travis flips Cudi’s breakout hit “Day 'n' Nite ” during his verse. This is actually the second time that Travis refers to this Cudi’s hit. Back in 2008, on one of his first musical projects, Graduates EP with Chris Holloway, one of the tracks was called “Day'n'Nite”.
Travis Scott has talked a lot about how Kid Cudi is one of his favorite artists. Travis said that Kid Cudi liking Rodeo meant so much to him. About Cudi’s participation on Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, he told Rolling Stone,
"In my whole career, all I wanted was acceptance from Kid Cudi…I don’t care about nothing else! This dude saved my life. He kept me from doing a lot of fucked up shit to myself, kept me on the right path. That’s why I make music, that’s why I go hard for the fans, that’s why I tell security to move out the way—‘cause this dude gave me the passion, the information, the insight on how to grow up and be who you want to be.
I don’t know if he remembers, but the first time I ever met Cudi was the first time I met Kanye (Kanye West). I’ve never told anyone this, but it was the same day. That was the first time I was around G.O.O.D. Music at all. I was sitting like, 'Man, I’m in the presence of 'Ye and Cudi. This is the art level where I want to be.’ "
