Travis Scott has been identified as a suspect in a nightclub attack in New York City where he is accused of punching a guy in the face and damaging his DJ gear.
After an altercation at the NYC nightclub Nebula during the early hours of Wednesday, La Flame is alleged to have punched a man on the left side of his face (March 1).
The victim, a sound engineer at the event, reportedly had no outward signs of injury. Also, Scott is charged with causing $12,000 in equipment damage, including speaker and video screen, during the argument.
The police record is formally categorized for “assault and criminal mischief,” but the NYPD is apparently still wanting to speak with Travis and his representatives to get his perspective.
The Houston rager was in town to support Don Toliver, a Cactus Jack signee who performed in New York City on February 28 after the publication of his new album Love Sick.
At Don T’s event, Scott really made a surprise appearance as a guest performer as they shared the stage to sing “Embarrassed,” their most recent joint effort. This week’s earlier release of Toliver’s Love Sick deluxe edition includes the song.
“We have a new Travis Scott record, expected to come in June,” Last month, Sylvia Rhone, CEO of Epic Records, announced to Billboard.
Although the high-profile executive’s announcement of the release date for Trav’s fourth album pleased fans, some are still hesitant to believe it given Scott’s unpredictable nature.
But the Cactus Jack visionary has been more outspoken about Utopia, which he teased during a concert earlier this month by saying he’d be unleashing it after the other label signees release their own releases.
At his 2023 Cactus Jack Foundation HBCU Celebrity Softball Tournament at Minute Maid Park this month, Travis raked up Utopia when fans enquired about its release date.
“That muthafucka’s on the way,” he responded from the field.
