Travis Scott Lawyer Says Rapper 'Did Not Know What Was Going On' at Astroworld

  • Rapper Travis Scott’s lawyer says his client “did not know what was going on” at Astroworld Music Festival last week in Houston, Texas, where at least nine concertgoers were killed due to a crowd surge during his performance.
  • Scott’s lawyer, Edwin McPherson, told Good Morning America on Friday that the mass casualty incident at Astroworld was “obviously a systemic breakdown,” and people need to wait for police to finish their investigation before “we start pointing fingers at anyone.”
  • When asked why Scott’s show “continued to go on for another 40 minutes” after officials declared the concert a mass casualty event, McPherson said that Scott and his crew were never made aware of that information until the following day.
