Travis Scott skates on a few charges.
Travis Scott has been having a stellar week. Within the past few days, the Astroworld rapper has officially cemented himself in the Kardashian/Jenner dynasty with the birth of his first child, as well as securing himself a nice legal victory. In case you don't remember, back in May of 2017, Travis Scott was arrested for reportedly inciting a riot, as well as endangering the welfare of a minor. At the time, Arkansas Police issued a statement claiming Scott "encouraged people to rush the stage at his show, bypassing security protocols in the process." Many were injured in the chaos, including a police officer and a security guard.
And while Travis Scott concerts have earned a reputation as being a wild affair, it seems a judge has taken no issue with the rapper's propensity for lit live performances. TMZ has reported that Travis Scott struck a deal with the Rogers District Court, pleading guilty for disorderly conduct, and paying a few fines as punishment. Luckily for Scott, the more serious charges of inciting a riot and endangering the welfare of a minor were dropped, leaving the case officially closed.
Now, all Scott has to worry about is fatherhood, and how the birth of his new child may affect the nurturing of his other baby - Astroworld. Fans are still waiting for the project, and some have expressed concern that Scott's priorities will soon shift. After all, he's already getting a bit of pressure from Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. Either way, it's a safe bet that Astroworld will drop in 2018 - it's only a matter of when.
