The New Era of Travie McCoy & The History of Gym Class Heroes
Manage episode 338568423 series 2650597
Travie McCoy is an artist, singer, songwriter, and co-founder of Gym Class Heroes. Most importantly, he's one of my biggest influences in finding and falling in love with the golden era of Fueled by Ramen bands and the Vans Warped Tour. I have so much respect for this dude, it's crazy!
This was a truly special episode where we got to talk about the very beginning of his career, starting Gym Class Heroes, and signing to Fueled By Ramen. We then talk about his astronomical growth into becoming a full on celebrity, and the new era of music he's currently working on.
(P.s. thank you Hodge for making this one happen. You're the realest.)
