On Saturday (13th of May), Travis Scott was taken into custody following his set and according to TMZ, he was arrested on charges of ‘inciting a riot’, ‘endangering welfare of a minor’ and ‘disorderly conduct’ at his concert at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion in Rogers, Arkansas.

Now the funny thing is, the rapper was released without bail a few hours after his arrest and details of exactly what Travis did to defy the law have not surfaced, but according to one of the rapper’s fan pages, some of the venue’s staff were allegedly hurt as a result.

The thing about the Mosh Pit is NO ONE will take offence at you whacking them in the face… We all get completely passionate and in the moment. The fact that Scott’s arrested for ‘inciting a riot’ is a little irrational don’t you think?

A riot is a form of civil disorder commonly characterised by a group LASHING out in a violent public disturbance against authority, property or people. To me, looking at the video, everyone was having a whale of a time at a lively concert and the police, as usual, used another excuse to arrest one of our own. The incite a Riot Law and Legal definition applies to a person who organises, encourages, or participates in a riot, however, back in the day, a lively mosh pit was the real indicator of a successful Rock show, so what makes rap music any different?

Brutal right?

Plus if you’ve ever been to a Travis Scott concert, you’d already know that the lit factor is too real and a mosh pit during his concerts is pretty standard.

The American rapper is not the only artist that receives a huge mosh pit during his shows, Tinie Tempah’s set at Landstreff Stavanger festival in Norway was a whole different level.

Is it a crime to encourage a mosh pit? Personally I don’t think it is but tweet us your thoughts.
