During the taping of the BET Hip Hop Awards tonight, an altercation ensued between Young Jeezy and Rick Ross. A verbal dispute began backstage and the two entourages started pushing and shoving one another around and bodyguards from each rapper managed to break it up. There is no word on what may have caused this ruckus (no pun intended Mike). Several reports have come out of this reportedly claiming shots were also fired by an unknown man outside of the building and was taken into custody. Below, DJ Drama weighs in on it.
Update with footage of the brawl:
Montana dropped the Montana from his name and also dropped his latest video “Dope or Die” off his When Push! Comes To Shove Volume 2 mixtape hosted by DJ Drama.
During Hot 97′s Summer Jam, Waka Flocka Flame was starting to go hard with “Hard In The Paint” but stopped the set to throw a dig at Jeezy. If you don’t catch what he said, here’s the flip: “These niggas talkin’ bout The Real Is Back, nigga. If it ain’t Brick Squad it ain’t real!“.
A week before this took place, Jeezy released a mixtape called The Real Is Back with DJ Drama. The summer hasn’t officially started but it’s getting heated already!
