HOUSTON - The city of Houston's mayor honored Grammy-nominated rapper and Houston native Travis Scott with a proclamation.

The honor came one day after he hosted the popular Astroworld Festival at NRG Park.

Mayor Sylvester Turner thanked Scott for what he has done for the city. Turner recognized Scott as one of Houston's ambassadors for art, education and youth initiatives and declared Nov. 18 as Astroworld Day.

In return, Scott pledged to support the Mayor's Art Scholarship Program, along with other citywide adolescent and youth programs.

Dozens of students from local high schools and Texas Southern University also attended the ceremony.

"I love you all and thank you, Mayor. I'm going to make this my goal to come back and deliver every time," Scott said.

A mural of Scott was also drawn at the 13th Annual Houston Via Colori Street Painting Festival by a group of students from Hastings High School.
