Travis Scott is back!
After the tragedy during his Astroworld Festival in November, the rapper is back to performing once again. On May 8, he had his first public appearance since the incident at Miami’s E11EVEN Club in line with the celebration of the Formula 1 Race Week.
The rapper arrived at the venue at 3 a.m. and went directly to the DJ booth and shouted over the mic for everyone in the club to “better lose their motherf—–g minds.”
The 31-year-old artist was wearing baggy jeans which he paired with a graphic t-shirt. He wore an IRAK ball cap to complete his look. His show lasted for 45 minutes wherein he performed tracks including “Sicko Mode”, “Antidote”, “Pick Up the Phone” and “Goosebumps”. The audience was in for a treat as Quavo from Migos joined him on stage after they shouted, “Dubai S- – t”.
Kylie Jenner, who shares two children with Travis, wasn’t with him but there were several celebrities at the E11EVEN that night such as Tyga, Busta Rhymes, Teyana Taylor, will.i.am, Future, and Zedd among others.
Before his most recent gig, Travis only appeared at private parties. He performed at the pre-Oscars 2022 party of Darren Dzienciol and Richie Akiva in March in bel-Air, California. The star-studded event included guests like Serena Williams and Leonardo DiCaprio. During Coachella he performed at the Revolve x Bootsy Bellows party in La Quinta, California.
Last November 5, eight people lost their lives during the Astroworld Festival in Houston. Their cause of death was accidental suffocation after they were crushed in the crowd. Further, two more died in the hospital days after the incident. Presently, Travis is facing several lawsuits in line with the incident at his concert.
He said during an interview with Charlamagne tha God, “It wasn’t really until minutes until the press conference until I found out exactly what happened. Even after the show, you know, you’re just kind of hearing things. I didn’t know the exact details until minutes before the press conference.”
On March 8, Travis launched Project HEAL. He shared on Instagram that the project is a “multi-tier, long-term series of community-focused philanthropy and investment efforts.” He added, “Over the past few months I’ve been taking the time and space to grieve, reflect and do my part to heal my community. Most importantly, I want to use my resources and platform moving forward towards actionable change.”
Travis also mentioned that the project “will be a lifelong journey for me and my family.” He also explained, “I feel as a leader in my community, I need to step up in times of need.”
