Travis Scott was mobbed by a throng of adoring fans after announcing his whereabouts on social media on Tuesday.
The rapper, 28, caused quite the commotion as he stood in the middle of a Los Angeles street, surrounded by young adults eager to take photos of him.
Despite all the love being shown to him, security was eventually forced to intervene and distance him from the crowd.

Eventually, Travis’ security stepped in, and appeared to pull him away from the throng.
But just because Travis was pulled away didn’t mean the party had to stop.
Travis was still able to interact with fans from inside his car, where he popped out through the moon roof.

Fans threw various items of clothing his way, and one lucky individual appeared to get his sneakers signed by the star.
The stunt was done to promote his new line of merchandise with i-D, Cactus Jack, a collection of apparel featuring sweatshirts and T-shirts.
There was no sign of Travis’ ex girlfriend Kylie Jenner nor their three-year-old daughter, Stormi Webster.
In a new interview with i-D magazine, the rapper revealed how fatherhood helped him creatively.

‘Fatherhood influences my job. It has a huge impact,’ Travis told the Spy Kids director. ‘It’s a major inspiration, you know what I’m saying?’
‘Especially Storm, she’s just acting like a kid. She’s always interested, she catches on and learns things and adapts to things so fast. It’s so crazy, Stormi’s generation is way different from mine, and she’s way different from my younger brother and sister.
‘Kids show you a different outlook on life, how they view things, the type of pressures they have and what makes them happy, what makes them move.
‘Like, when she watches certain movies or listen to certain songs. Or she watches my concerts on YouTube and she realises she’s there, she’s ready to see now. I realised my job is way more important than what I thought because of her. More responsibility, you know? You’ve got to use that properly.’
Lucky! One fan appeared to get his sneaker stamped by the rapper
