The week began with the news that ragemaster Travis Scott had a concert where fans leapt from balconies down to the moshtastic crowd below. One guy went so far as to fly from the third-story balcony. He was injured.

Now Scott's team has issued the following statement:

"The safety of everyone is held in the highest regard and we are currently conducting an internal investigation to ensure that this does not happen again. We are deeply concerned about the guest who was injured and intend to offer him our support."

TMZ writes that the fan has "serious injuries including a possible broken leg and fractured back." Pitchfork adds that Scott & Co. are "in contact with the fan to stay up-to-date on his condition," and launching an investigation into whether the concertgoer jumped or was pushed. 

Last week it was announced that Travis Scott would bring the ruckus to Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. Tour. He also guested on new songs by SZA and Frank Ocean.
