The Travis Scott hip-hop carnival rolls into Pittsburgh
WATCH: Travis Scott fits a damn roller coaster inside his raging N.J. arena concert
From the moment he sprung up from beneath the floor, amid a blast of fire and smoke and onto the Prudential Center stage, there was no doubt — Travis Scott had come to New Jersey to rage.

For those not indoctrinated in the speak of the mega-popular Houston emcee and his mostly millennial and teen fanbase, “rage” in this sense means to party to the point of self-destruction, to sing and dance and drink until someone has to peel you off the floor — or youve recorded enough video to relive such exploits on social media, of course.

Word on the street is that rapper Travis Scott has established his bona fides with “Astroworld,” his third album and current tour.

No longer best known as Kylie Jenners boyfriend and father of daughter Stormi, Scott brought his tour, roller coaster and all, to Pittsburgh last night for a show that reportedly rocked not only PPG Paints Arena but also the surrounding city.

Why can I hear Travis Scotts concert all the way from my bedroom in my apartment. It literally sounds like an earthquake is hitting Pittsburgh.

During the show, Scott paid tribute to Pittsburgh native son and fellow rapper, the late Mac Miller.

Though some fans werent happy that the start time got pushed back a couple of hours to 9:30 p.m., Scott seemed to make them forget that the alarm would be going off early on Monday morning.
