Roddy Ricch is offering to help the families of those who died at Astroworld Festival. On Saturday (Nov. 6), the “Bacc Seat” rapper took to Instagram to make a generous proposal. 

“Please have the families of those who we lost yesterday reach out to @shawnholiday. I’ll be donating my net compensation to the families of this incident. #Pray4Houston,” he wrote in a message posted to his IG Stories. 

Roddy was one of the performers who hit the Thrills stage on day one of the Astroworld Festival. Per the lineup, his performance at 5:30 p.m. CST followed Don Tolliver’s and was right before Lil Baby’s. According to setlist.fm, a site that collects and shares user submitted setlists, Roddy performed nine songs, including “The Box,” “ROCKSTAR,” “Late at Night,” and “Die Young” at the festival. 

Travis Scott has also offered to “assist” the families of those who died. La Flame released a video message Saturday evening stating that he was working to identify the families, so he could help them through their tough time. “I just want to send out prayers to the ones that was lost last night,” Scott said, appearing visibly distressed. “My fans really mean the world to me. I always just really want to leave them with a positive experience.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up for at least one of the teenagers who died at Astroworld Festival. Brianna Rodriguez, a 16-year-old, whose family confirmed to People that she was among the dead, has raised over $20,000. The goal for the funeral expenses is listed at $30,000. 

“Gone from our sites, but never from our hearts. It is with profound sadness we lay to rest our beloved Brianna Rodriguez,” the page reads. “She was a beautiful vibrant 16-year-old high school junior at Heights HS in Houston TX. Dancing was her passion and now she’s dancing her way to heaven’s pearly gates. Anything to help the family will be greatly appreciated.”
