Can Travis Scott’s AI knockoff legitimately rap?
A digital agency Space150 has created an AI-generated Travis Scott, or to be more precise “Travis Bott,” in an attempt to succeed in connecting AI and the genre of music. Using artificial intelligence, the track was generated by feeding the rapper’s lyrics into a text generator model and creating beats and melodies with other neural network programs. What came out is “Jack Park Canny Dope Man”, a pretty on-brand sounding song quite close to actual Travis, but the lyrics simply don’t make any sense.
Ned Lampert, executive creative director of Space150, says: “It came up with things that we would never come up with.” Listen to “Jack Park Canny Dope Man” and check out the video starring a Travis Scott deepfake below.
