Eight people died at the Travis Scott concert melee last Friday night in Houston. Many more were hospitalized with 300+ injured. Many in a surging crowd, egged on by Scott, were trampled, suffocated, and brutalized. One concert goer in the melee posted the scene on Instagram, saying, “It was like being in hell. Like demons were everywhere. There was no way out!” Others used the term “demons” to describe the atmosphere. Even the normally liberal USA Today national newspaper declared in a headline that it “felt like hell on earth.”
Other reports claim that individuals were injecting people with needles containing some unknown substance. Videos of the concert later confirmed that Scott saw that audience members had been hurt and that the crowd was pleading with him to stop the show. He didn’t and instead continued to perform for another hour. And its not the first-time people at a Travis Scott concert have been seriously injured. In 2017 a man was paralyzed from a fall. At this same concert, Scott was filmed encouraging another fan to drop from a 2nd story seat into the crowd below. The injured man now claims that Scott incited people in a reckless manner. He was arrested in 2017 for encouraging people to rush the stage. Scott calls his fans “ragers” and encourages them to act accordingly. If that isn’t demonic, what is? Proverbs 14:16 says, “A wise man fears and departs from evil, but a fool rages.”
Travis Scott’s partner is Kylie Jenner, of the infamous Kardashian family, one of the world’s youngest billionaires. She already has one illegitimate child by Scott and is pregnant with their second. Those who have read my book Curse Breaking know it contains an entire section devoted to examining the curse of illegitimacy, one of the most devastating curses known to humanity. Deuteronomy 23:2 declares in blunt language, “A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.” I’ve dealt with thousands of people victimized by this curse, through no fault of their own. It was the lust of their parents’ evil that cursed them. Until this curse is broken, the innocent child suffers a lifetime of rejection and feelings of alienation from the Lord. The details of Scott’s birth aren’t known, but he was raised by his grandmother until the age of six.
Travis Scott has consistently engendered a godless thug image based on moral mutiny. Those in the entertainment industry consistently describe Travis Scott’s deliberately inculcated image as being one of rebellion. The Bible in 1 Samuel 15:23 says, “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” If you want a lyrical sample for proof, try this from Scott’s song “S*** On You”: “I did things that most men will ask forgiveness. Broke the code the commands from my descendants. Who gives a ****!”
Travis Schott is responsible for what happened. His careless, egomaniacal behavior drew young fans to their death. Look at the images of the Astroworld concert. There is Scott, high on a platform, almost godlike, inciting the audience. His own fans screamed for him to stop, but he went on performing while bloodied bodies gasped for air. Some breathed their last breath.
Hosea 8:7 warns, “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” Tavis Scott sowed moral insurrection to 50,000 people that night in Houston. He’ll now likely reap a whirlwind of lawsuits that even his paramour’s pocketbook might not be able to withstand. How different things would have been if Scott had used his talents to reflect biblical behavior of “love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance – the fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23 KJV).
