Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James knows he’s a rare entity. The NBA superstar went online Thursday to reference Travis Scott‘s “Highest in the Room” single with a slideshow of dunk pics. Look and comment below!
Kanye West took a little break from the brisk environment of Wyoming to link with Travis Scott for the ASTROWORLD festival in the warmth of Houston.
Ye hit NRG Stadium in Houston to perform “Follow God” from the JESUS IS KING album in front of 50,000 strong. The track was followed by the classic “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” and while Mr. West didn’t get the bars off to the Graduation single, the crowd did and he stayed around to enjoy the aura.
Over 50,000 die-hard Travis Scott fans were expected to be at the rapper’s second annual Astroworld Festival this weekend in Houston. Tickets to the festival sold out within minutes of tickets releasing and even before the official lineup was even posted.
On Saturday, just as the gates opened, fans decided to stampede their way into the park, trampling over people in the process. Sources say at least 3 people were injured.
Scott himself had posted a video of the crowd on Saturday morning which shows the madness to get into the park. Fans were climbing over the barricades and rushing the entry gates just to get into the park.
“DA YOUTH DEM CONTROL THE FREQUENCY. EVERYONE HAVE FUN. RAGERS SET TONE WHEN I COME OUT TONIGHT. BE SAFE RAGE HARD. AHHHHHHHHHHH” Travis said in his Instagram post.
According to reports, three people were transported to the hospital with minor leg injuries after being trampled in the stampede. In a recently deleted tweet, Houston PD had said that the event was understaffed and promoters did not plan for such large crowds.
We are successfully working together to support Houston's biggest music festival @astroworldfest at @nrgpark and collaborating closely with the festival to ensure the public safety of everyone attending the event. We look forward to a memorable night. #hounews

Fans were so excited to get into the festival, a few were injured during a stampede, per TMZ.
As for the concert, In the middle of his headlining set on Saturday night, Scott surprised the crowd by bringing out Kanye West, who performed his latest single “Follow God” from his Jesus Is King album. West also performed (more like lip-synced since he was rapping over the tracks) the very secular “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”
Recently, West jokingly said he wants to change his name to “Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West.” We wish we could say there’s no way that would ever happen.

The Kardashian/Jenner clan has an impressive track record when it comes to the men they date. Despite recent rumors, Drake is not the latest high profile to celebrity to join that list according to E! News, and TMZ.
PEOPLE first reported that a source close to the Kardashian family that Drizzy and Kylie Jenner have been “spending time together” one month after her split from Travis Scott. TMZ got word from its Kardashian source that yes, they are hanging out but only as friends.
Sources close to both Kylie and Drake tell TMZ … they are not spending any romantic time together, as other outlets have reported or speculated. We’re told they’ve been at some events together — including the rapper’s recent 33rd birthday party — simply because they are pals.Their friendship has endured despite Drake’s beef with Kylie’s bro-in-law, Kanye West, but our sources add … in no way, shape or form are they dating.We’re also told Kylie currently isn’t seeing anyone at all and has no desire to do so … she’s happy for now just being a mom to Stormi.An E! News source told the outlet that two Calabasas neighbors do hang out a lot now that she is single, but there isn’t anything going on romantically between them.“They have always been good friends and have been hanging out more that Kylie is single, and Drake is in town at his house in Calabasas. It’s a convenient friendship, but it’s strictly platonic.”
Kylie Jenner was also rumored to have rekindled her relationship with her ex Tyga. She was spotted at the same studio he was recording out of. She quickly shut those rumors down after social media ran with it.
The internet makes everything 100 times more dramatic than what it really is. There was no ‘2am date with Tyga.’ You see me drop two of my friends off at a studio that he happened to be at.”
We won’t be shocked if news drops confirming they’re are indeed dating.
