Travis Scott took time out of his 2018 Lollapalooza set to honor late rapper XXXTentacion. On Thursday (August 2), ahead of the release of his album Astroworld, Travis paid tribute to the slain 20-year-old rapper, who was shot and killed in an apparent robbery back in June.
"R.I.P. my n*gga X," Travis told the crowd during a break in his action-packed set. Travis made sure to give his fans a memorable show, performing his biggest hits, including, “Antidote,” “Butterfly Effect,” and even Miguel’s “Sky Walker,” which he's featured on.
Following his performance, Travis dropped his highly-anticipated album Astroworld, and even held a listening party for his fans.

In attendance of Travis' big night was his girlfriend and baby mama, Kylie Jenner, who is heavily mentioned on the rapper's new album. In honor of Kylie’s recent Forbes cover (she is on track to become the youngest “self-made” billionaire ever) the “Watch” rapper made sure to boast about his girl’s success on "Sicko Mode." He also seemed to give Kylie a shout-out on “Stargazing,” in what could be a reference to either Kylie or their daughter Stormi, Travis rapped about a girl that came to save his life.
The makeup mogul posted her support of her man on Instagram, following the release of his album. "You didn’t have to go this hard baby," Kylie captioned a photo of herself decked out in Astroworld gear. "Astroworld just dropped and it’s the craziest ride of my life 😫😍😍.”
