A clash between hip-hop stars Rick Ross and Young Jeezy erupted backstage at the BET Hip Hop Awards last night. According to witnesses on the scene, the two had a heated argument and began pushing, shoving, and cursing at one another. Security guards from BET and bodyguards from the entourages of both rappers had to separate the two. After the fight, sources also note that a member of Rick Ross’ entourage pulled out a gun in the parking lots and shots were fired. A spokesperson for the Atlanta Police Department released a statement contradicting these sources.
“Shortly after 7:15pm Saturday, a fight broke out in the parking lot at the Atlanta Civic Center between two groups. Atlanta Police Department officers on scene responded to break up the fight and used OC spray in the process. Individuals fled the scene. There were no arrests or reports of serious injuries. Reports of shots fired appear to be untrue.”
And to add even further f*ckery to the night, it is also being reported that rapper 50 Cent got into an altercation with another protégé of Rick Ross, rapper Gunplay.
An investigation is ongoing.
