The taping of the BET Hip Hop Awards, held on Saturday night in Atlanta, was nothing short of entertaining thanks to Rick Ross and Young Jeezy. The two rappers reportedly got into a verbal and physical altercation backstage; proving their feud is far from over.
"Jeezy and Rick Ross just had words backstage!! Pushing and shoving," DJ Funkmaster Flex tweeted.
Flex wasn't the only one who commented on the backstage dispute via Twitter.
Machine Gun Kelly tweeted, "Got mase in my eyes. That beef s@#t just got real."
According to Us Weekly, the award show attendees were shouting and pushing each other until security stepped in. However, Ross and Jeezy's fight did not end there.
MTV reported that the rapper's quarrel continued outside in the parking lot and claimed that shots were fired. They also stated that one man left the scene in handcuffs.
In a statement to the press, a representative from the Atlanta Police Department said, "Shortly after 7:15 pm Saturday, a fight broke out in the parking lot at the Atlanta Civic Center between two groups. 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."
A rep for BET stated, "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. BET Networks does not condone any type of violence. Local authorities are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible."
The Civic Center was said to be on lock down during the brawl until the dispute ended.
