American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer Jacques Bermon Webster II is better known by his stage name, Travis Scott. He started his career in music after quitting college. He began by concentrating on hip-hop production with the intention of becoming a record producer. He stayed in the Just Blaze studio for the majority of his time in New York. The Goosebumps singer shot to fame in 2012 when he landed a deal with Epic Records, his first major label. He appeared in the 2012 compilation Cruel Summer by the label to demonstrate his connection. While every artist works hard to build a career for themselves in the entertainment industry, only a few are able to make it in the long run. However, it was the song Antidote from his album Rodeo that catapulted his career into the stratosphere.

Ten people were killed after the horrific occurrence, which was blown out of proportion and turned into a rage. 400 lawsuits were brought against the Sicko Mode vocalist. The lawsuits were ultimately consolidated into a single civil case, representing up to 2,800 victims, as per reports.
