Travis Scott Speaks On Astroworld Tragedy

Travis Scott has opened up about the Astroworld tragedy back in 2021 where 10 concertgoers were killed after a crowd surge.

“I always think about it. Those fans were like my family,” he told GQ. “You just feel for those people. And their families.”

After the tragedy, the rapper says he did not go back to making music until months later.

“Making music, you think about things that go on in life and things that happen in your life, and you dial in on things. That moment for families, for the city, you know, it was devastating,” he said.

In July, the Houston Police Department issued a detailed report on the 2021 Astroworld tragedy that occurred during Travis Scott’s performance at NRG Park.

The Houston PD tweeted a link to the 1,266 page document.

Scott’s attorney, Kent Schaffer told TMZ that the timing of its release was suspect.

“The timing of the Houston Police Department report’s release, coinciding with the launch of Travis Scott’s highly anticipated album, is anything but coincidental. Travis Scott and his team were, as anticipated, fully cleared of any wrongdoing associated with the Astroworld tragedy by a grand jury based on the very report released today,” he said.
