Rappers Rick Ross and Young Jeezy still don’t like each other.
Ross and Jeezy allegedly got into a shoving match while backstage at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta on Saturday. According to New York’s Hot 97 DJ Funkmaster Flex, things came to a head when the rapper’s entourages crossed paths backstage.
Ross and Jeezy exchanged words and started pushing and shoving each other. BET security and bodyguards for each of the rappers eventually separated them. The fight moved from backstage to the parking lot where gunshots were fired.
BET shut down the awards ceremony until they found the shooter and arrested him
Funkmaster Flex tweeted:
RapRadar’s Elliott Wilson retweeted industry insider JasFly, who also confirmed Funkmaster Flex’s tweets:
MTV News reports that Ross’ protégé Gunplay was also involved in a scuffle with members of 50 Cent’s G-Unit camp. Gunplay was seen with visible wounds. A source told MTV that the Miami MC was put into handcuffs and detained, but he was not arrested.
Most of the crowd inside the Atlanta Civic Center, where the taping took place were unaware of the drama that took place backstage. During the altercations, A Tribe Called Quest, Missy Elliott and Busta Rhymes paid tribute to music mogul Chris Lighty, who allegedly committed suicide.
Ross and Jeezy also performed different sets during the award show.
