Travis Scott Pleads Guilty to Starting Stampede at Lollapalooza
Travis Scott pled guilty to charges of reckless conduct on Tuesday (Dec. 22) stemming from an incident that occurred at his Lollapalooza performance this past summer. The judge has ordered Travis Scott, whose real name is Jaques Webster, to be under court supervision for one year.
The reckless conduct charges were a result of Travis Scott encouraging fans to jump over the security barricades during his Lollapalooza performance. Things began to get out of hand and one 15 year old girl was trampled during the stampede of fans. Travis Scott tried to calm down fans, but his efforts were in vain. Scott eventually fled the scene and organizers shut down the show. He was later arrested.
For Travis Scott, this is a small bump in the road of what has been a very big year for the Texas rapper and producer. The former XXL Freshman released his debut album Rodeo back in September and the project debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
Rodeo boasted an impressive lineup of guests as Kanye West, Juicy J, Future, 2 Chainz, Quavo, Young Thug, The Weeknd, Chief Keef, Justin Bieber and Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd appeared on the album. An all-star lineup of producers were involved in the production of the album as Sonny Digital, Metro Boomin, Frank Dukes, Zaytoven, Mike Dean, 808 Mafia, Terrace Martin and DJ Dahi all contributed to the LP.
