Earlier this week, Travis Scott revealed that his longtime bodyguard Big Tony passed away. Taking to social media, the rapper posted a series of pictures sharing some of the memories he and Big Tony shared together, saying that he wouldn’t be the same person without him. “U gon be my guardian angel for life bro. I love u mannnnnnnnnnnnn I want u to know that. We all do broooooooooooooooooooooooooo I’m hurt Rest In Peace To my dawg big Tony,” read one of Scott’s Instagram captions. “We wouldn’t mob with out your lead. Rip my dawg.”
Scott is currently on tour with Kendrick Lamar but was absent from the Washington, D.C. show, which was the same night he got the news of Big Tony’s passing. At the next stop in Boston, Scott explained the situation to his fans and dedicated an emotional performance of “90210” to Big Tony, which was met with an appropriate response from the crowd.
R.I.P Big Tony.
