The List: Travis Scott's Birds In The Trap short film is here

Travis Scott has some acting chops that might give you goosebumps.

Birds In the Trap has flown the coop of Apple exclusives and now everyone can watch it.

Travis Scott rocked Soundset through a thunderstorm, and his short film, Birds In The Trap, proves he's a man for all seasons in front of the camera as well. But don't expect a collection of music videos strung together by acting interludes like how most of his rap contemporaries' "short films."

Birds In the Trap explores the fragility of mortality from the angle of both a limited precious entity as well as a commodity. While the first half deals with the realities of consequences behind the wheel, Birds In The Trap finishes with a dystopian look at a cybernetic potential future. Two sides of the trap, two sides of life, 14 minutes with Travis Scott.

- The first remix oozing with summer fun is here with the Kodak Black-assisted new take on Kyle's "iSpy."

- Straight outta Compton and into Hollywood, Ice Cube received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

- Dave Chappelle announced a residency at New York's Radio City Music Hall with Childish Gambino, Erykah Badu, Chris Rock, The Roots, Trevor Noah and Ali Wong.

- Two new videos from certified hip-hop legends dropped on the same day as the DJ Premier-produced MC Eiht clip for "Compton Zoo" and AZ's "Save Them" with Raekwon and Prodigy of Mobb Deep.
