Videos Emerge of Rick Ross’ Backstage Fight at 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards
Footage of the infamous scuffle between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy backstage at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards has surfaced online. TMZ posted a grainy smart phone video capturing the moments after both parties met in the hallway at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center.
In the clip, a shirtless Ross can be seen yelling at someone before a shoving match erupts and a standing mirror crashes to the ground. Whoever Rozay was shouting at tries to confront him but law enforcement steps in and tries to calm things down. Although Young Jeezy doesn't appear anywhere in the video, DJ Drama casually walks by the drama (excuse the pun) as if it was a normal day at the office.
According to Atlanta police, no arrests were made and no gunshots were fired in the parking lot despite previous reports that shots were fired outside of the vicinity.
However, what did occur in the parking lot was another fight that involved Maybach Music Group associate Gunplay. According to AllHipHop.com, Gunplay reportedly was jumped allegedly by 50 Cent's goons and he retaliated by throwing 'bows at his assailants. The Miami rapper is captured punching an unidentified guy before he is pepper sprayed by police and reportedly arrested.
In the aftermath, BET released a statement Sunday (Sept. 30) about the incidents but didn't name any of the parties involved.
"BET Networks works very hard to bring the best in entertainment to the city of Atlanta. For the past 7 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," the network said. "BET Networks does not condone any type of violence. Local authorities are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible."
BET still plans to air The 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards on Oct. 9 at 8PM ET.
