The next year, he paired up with another one of his friends, this time OG Chess. They were former classmated and therefore the group was called The Classmates.
They managed to create a few projects in 2009 and 2010. Since Scott did all of the producing, the group wasn’t very opened to discussion. They later split up because of it and because of the fact that they weren’t getting any cash out of their work.
When Travis left college, he moved to Washington and he started to collaborate with a friend Mike Waxx. He didn’t like the town nor did he like the collaborations offered to him so he later moved to Los Angeles.
