Saturday night’s taping of the BET Hip Hop Awards went almost according to plan until Jeezy and Rick Ross crossed paths. The two had alot to say to each other and eventually started pushing and shoving and then the scuffling unfolded until security and their bodyguards seperated. Police reports of the incident even state that shots were fired but according to DJ Drama’s first person account of the situation he didnt mention any shots and said both rappers left the incident unscratched.
BET has issued a statement saying:
“BET Networks works very hard to bring the best in entertainment to the city of Atlanta. For the past seven years BET has celebrated the true art form of hip-hop. Due to some misjudgment of select attendees, it is unfortunate that certain incidents took place. BET Networks does not condone any type of violence. Local authorities are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.”
