BET Hip-Hop Awards Suspended After Rick Ross and Young Jeezy Fight Erupts (Report)

Rick Ross BET Hip-Hop Awards - H 2012

Entourages for the Def Jam recording artists were allegedly involved in a physical confrontation that may have involved gunfire.

A feud between Def Jam artists Rick Ross and Young Jeezy reportedly came to blows—and possibly gunfire—during Saturday’s taping of the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

The confrontation between the men’s entourages escalated from words to “pushing and shoving,” reports HipHop Dx, citing on-the-scene tweets from HOT 97’s Funkmaster Flex

Complex reports the fight moved to the parking lot, with the sound of gunshots and a police arrest of a gunman following. Machine Gun Kelly tweeted he was injured in the fracas: "Got mase in my eyes. That beef shit just got real outside."

The awards show taping was reportedly put on pause and the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center was locked down. The awards resumed soon after, and Ross is said to have made an appearance onstage to perform “Hold Me Back” and “Ice Cold." It’s unclear whether this happened before or after the alleged brawl, though multiple people claiming to be at the show have tweeted Ross appeared after.

Ross and Young Jeezy were once collaborators, but have been involved in a feud for the past several years. Reps for the men did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards air Oct. 9.
