Travis Scott is trying to do good as he gradually makes his comeback following last November’s Astroworld tragedy.
While the rapper was performing at Miami “ultra club” E11even on Saturday, he spotted a fan in the crowd recording a video – and decided to pick up the phone to give them a better angle.
“But it was a FaceTime call,” an eyewitness told Page Six. “Travis looked confused and flipped off the guy [at the other end of the call] in a playful way, and mic-dropped the phone back [to its owner].”
We’re told the embattled rapper, 31, started the impromptu show at 3.15 a.m., with DJ Chase B spinning the tracks.
“Travis got on top of the DJ booth and used it as his stage,” one attendee told us, adding that Scott performed hits like “Pick Up the Phone” and “Highest in the Room.”
We hear one big spender, who had spent thousands for a nearby table, also got in on the action, with Scott letting them get on the mic and do the intro to the song “Goosebumps.”
Chase B also played Drake’s new album, “Honestly, Nevermind,” while Scott hung out in the DJ booth and kept the crowd hyped.
Later, we’re told Scott climbed back on top of the DJ booth for covers like Lionel Richie’s “The Only One.”
As Page Six previously reported, Scott played his first public show since the Astroworld tragedy at the club in May.
He has played a number of private parties and was scheduled to take the stage at a festival in Las Vegas, but the event was canceled due to production issues, according to a statement from organizers.
Ten people died and numerous were injured during the Astroworld Festival when the crowd rushed the stage. Scott has only given one interview since the festival, telling radio host Charlamagne tha God in December 2021 that he “1,000 percent” did everything he could to help dying audience members. He has claimed he did not hear their cries from the stage.
As Page Six was first to report, Dior recently decided to release a collaboration with Scott’s Cactus Jack after it paused the project following the tragedy.
