Earlier in the evening, Scott was at rapper Don Toliver’s show at Irving Plaza, about 25 blocks south of Club Nebula.

A representative for Scott said he was unaware of all the details and did not wish to comment immediately.

He’s headlining this weekend’s Rolling Loud festival at the Hollywood Park Grounds in Inglewood, Calif.

Scott is scheduled to take the stage on Saturday, a day after the Kodak Black concert.
