Renowned rappers, Travis Scott and Drake have been sued following the death of eight people and hundreds injured in a crush at the Texas festival Astroworld.

A legal action was taken by one injured concert goer who is seeking $1m (£741,000) in damages after accusing Scott and surprised performer Drake of inciting the crowd.

While both performers have been quiet about the lawsuit, Scott, has showed concern, commented on the concert and aftermath of the concert, claiming he was working to help the families of the victims.

Scott who added to his comments, also sent messages to the victims, of the stampede in form of condolences.

“Dancing was her passion and now she is dancing her way to heaven’s pearly gates,” the family of 16-year-old Brianna Rodriguez said in a statement.

The accident which occurred at about 21:15 local time on Friday (02:15 GMT Saturday), triggered panic as the crowd pressed towards the front of the stage during Scott’s headline set.
