Travis Scott, rapper behind the hit “Goosebumps” ft. Kendrick Lamar and Kylie Jenner’s baby daddy, now holds the key to his hometown, the Houston suburb of Missouri City, Texas.

Scott was honored on Saturday in Missouri City, where he was presented with a giant, ceremonial key. The town also declared the date, February 10th, Travis Scott Day, according to city’s own Twitter account.


All of this is great and all, but what does it allow him to open? Does the key actually open anything? And is that even how a “key to the city” works?

The actual key (like, the big gold device in Scott’s Instagram above) in most “key to the city” ceremonies are comically large, and couldn’t open a normal door (they look like they accompany a pirate’s treasure chest, or something.) So what does Scott’s key unlock? Does he hold the key to open some secret, local government building? If so, what hides behind those doors? Secret government records?

Maybe Scott doesn’t even know, but the rapper seemed stoked on the recognition. He said during his acceptance speech (via Facebook): “My only job is just to inspire kids to be the best they can be, to reach their ultimate height. Everybody has a dream and everybody can do it.”


It’s a nice sentiment, but, really, I just wanna know what what his key opens. Let us know if you know:
