Travis Scott faces mounting legal problems in the wake of the Astroworld music festival tragedy that left 10 music fans dead and hundreds injured. One group recently filed a $10 billion lawsuit against Scott. The rapper has been laying low and lawyering up in the aftermath, but now he’s finally speaking out about the horrific event.
Scott recently did an interview with Charlamagne Tha God on Charlamagne’s YouTube channel. He spoke about Astroworld in detail. He described his personal emotions since the concert.
“I’ve been on different types of emotions, an emotional rollercoaster, I mean. It gets so hard because, you know, I always feel connected with my fans. I went through something and I feel like fans went through something and people’s parents went through something.
And it really hurts. It hurts the community. It hurts the city. There’s been a lot of thoughts, a lot of feelings, a lot of grieving, and just trying to wrap my head around it.”
Charlamagne asked Travis Scott about his intentions with the interview. Travis said he just feels like he needs a way to communicate. He told Charlamagne that nobody else would be his voice, so it was time to step up.
“I don’t personally have an intention, I just feel like something happened and I feel like it’s just, I needed a way to kinda like communicate, you know?” he said. “One, families are grieving. There’s fans that experienced something, there’s fans that came to the show. I’ve always been that person to always see things through with the people that share experiences with me. It’s been such a time and I’ve been trying to just really figure things out.”
Travis Scott relayed that he is taking time to himself to try and cope with the Astroworld incident. He emphasized that the lawsuits won’t keep him from talking about his feelings. As things play out in the court system, we’ll see how his demeanor changes.
