He's only recently started performing in public, specifically at afterparties.
Travis Scott released his first single titled “Hold That Heat,” which is a collaboration with Future and producer Southside, since the Astroworld tragedy back in November.
Along with their new track, the group also released a new music video where the “Sicko Mode” rapper may initially be spotted in a corridor, clutching a metal chain around an alligator’s neck, which remains throughout the clip.
He gets on a sofa with Future later in the video, and the two consume marijuana together. Subsequently, a man watches a lady performing a striptease while dressed in mesh. They may be seen smoking for almost the whole clip, and lighting played a significant role in the production.
It’s unknown whether the song is from Southside’s upcoming project, given he has yet to release a solo studio album. “Hold that, hold that heater [aka gun],” Scott sang in the chorus.
According to Complex, this is his second song performance since the tragedy, and he has generally shunned the spotlight since then. He did, however, feature on Kanye West’s Donda 2, albeit, unlike most of the album’s partners, he did not attend the album’s release party in Miami.
He also has just been removed off the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival’s 2022 lineup. This is in response to the chaos that erupted at his Astroworld Festival, which resulted in hundreds of injuries and ten deaths, including Ezra Blount, a 9-year-old child.
As of late January, the almost 2,800 victims who have filed over 400 lawsuits against him and Live Nation in connection with the music festival catastrophe have been consolidated into one case. The plaintiffs are demanding billions of dollars in damages and argue that the music event was planned and managed negligently.
In addition, the Texas Task Force on Concert Safety has released a report acquired by Pitchfork on Astroworld. The task group blamed the disaster on an “inconsistent” permitting procedure across Texas, as well as a lack of event security training and communication.
