La Flame Under Fire

Travis Scott is under heavy scrutiny the release of a video depicting him being hostile towards a sound engineer following assault allegations

Travis Scott recently was accused of attacking a nightclub employee while serving as a DJ at Don Toliver's afterparty, and such allegations have been given more with the release of short video depicting La Flame yelling at the same employee, a 52-year-old sound engineer, before pushing away.

In the footage acquired by Page Six (, Scott can be seen and heard telling the engineer to "Back the f*ck up" as he pushed the man away, moments before the rapper allegedly smacked the engineer in the place.

According to Page Six, the sound engineer had been trying to fix the sound being distorted and volume being too loud before Scott intervened, yelled at the man, then assaulted the engineer. The rapper also reportedly damaged the equipment at the venue, damaging a speaker and video screen in a tantrum that according to an eyewitness lasted ten minutes.

The alleged victim had been taken to the hospital following the incident, and in an interview with FOX 5 NY (, the engineer claimed that he had attempted to work with Scott while sharing the DJ booth, but the rapper had been displaying difficult behavior.

"I was trying to tell him to lower [the volume] so it sounded good for the performance, but he just stuck his middle finger in my face...So I lowered the monitor a little bit so I could talk to him, and that’s when he ran around the speaker and attacked me."

While a complaint was issued and police arrived to the venue, Travis Scott has yet to be arrested or charged for the alleged-assault.
