Travis McCoy is the lead vocalist of the alternative hip-hop group Gym Class Heroes.

Musician

Travis made his MTV debut in the summer of 2002, as he appeared on stage at the beach house on a standard nation-wide MC Battle that was held on the MTV show "Direct Effect". [ [http://www.cutinc.org/UnityFest/bands.html Gym Class Heroes history] ]

McCoy was arrested on July 1 2008 after hitting a man on the head with his microphone. The man had been in the crowd at a concert in St. Louis when he called McCoy a "fucking ignorant nigger."cite web|url=http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2008/07/02/gym-class-heroes-singer-arrested-for-assault-after-racial-slur/|title=Gym Class Heroes Frontman Arrested For Assault After Reacting to Racial Slur|last=Michel|first=Dan|date=2008-07-02|publisher=Rolling Stone|accessdate=2008-07-07] McCoy calmly asked the man, "What did you just call me?" As security was removing the man from the venue, McCoy brought the man on stage to call him out in front of the crowd. In a statement, McCoy's publicist said that the man hit McCoy in his knee, which was in a brace after he had suffered a recent strain.

Guest appearances

McCoy is featured in several music videos for Fall Out Boy. He appears as a vampire in "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More 'Touch Me'", and a dancer in their videos for "Dance, Dance" and "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" (also singing in the remix.)

He also rapped a verse on the song "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)" video, for the film "Snakes on a Plane", alongside Gabe Saporta (Cobra Starship), William Beckett (The Academy Is...), and Maja Ivarsson (The Sounds). [ [http://www.spin.com/features/heythisisawesome/2006/07/060706_cobra/ Cobra Starship member list] ] He also sings vocals for Cobra Starship's album "¡Viva La Cobra!" in the track "Kiss My Sass". He appears as an onlooker in a crowd in Styles P's video "Daddy Gotta Get That Cash". McCoy collaborated with R&B singer Kelly Rowland in the track called "Daylight", a single from the re-release of her album "Ms. Kelly". The video premiered on Vivement Dimanche in France on January 6, 2008.

McCoy, Lil Wayne, & Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy made appearances in McCoy's cousin Tyga's single, "Coconut Juice."

Personal life

In early March 2008, Travis opened up about his battles with opioids. He stated that he had been addicted to pharmaceuticals since he was 15 years old. [http://traviesblog.com/post/28264148/baby-im-a-blur-so-ive-had-a-little-time-on-my official blog]

McCoy has given a promise ring to his musician girlfriend Katy Perry.cite web|url=http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20208074,00.html?xid=rss-topheadlines|title=Travis McCoy Gives Katy Perry a 'Promise Ring'|last=White|first=Nicholas|coauthors=Jessica Herndon|date=2008-06-23|publisher=People magazine|accessdate=2008-06-25] When asked if this was rehearsal for an actual proposal, McCoy shrugged with a grin. She is touring on the Warped Tour along with Gym Class Heroes. Katy appeared as his girlfriend in the "Cupid's Chokehold" video.
