You know, my fans really mean the world to me and I always want to leave them with a positive experience.

Anytime I can make out anything that’s going on, you know, I stop the show and you know, help them get the help they need. I could just never imagine the severity of the situation.

Scott said his team were working ‘closely with everyone to try and get to the bottom of this, City Houston, HPD and the fire department’.

The rapper concluded: ‘If you have any information, please just contact your local authorities. I’m (going to) do everything I can to keep you guys updated, just keep you guys informed on what’s going on. Love you all.’
