Rick Ross And Young Jeezy Brawl Caught On Tape; BET Releases Statement
The brawl between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy isn’t the only drama that took place during the taping of the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards on Saturday. According to reports, Ricky’s artist Gunplay was also involved in a fight. Allegedly, the “Rollin” rapper was jumped by five members of 50 Cent‘s G-Unit crew. Gunplay was maced by police and later put in handcuffs, but not arrested.
Yesterday, BET addressed the incidents in a statement, saying:
“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.”
Not surprisingly, both incidents were caught on tape. Check out video footage of Rick and Jeezy’s fight, as well as the brawl involving Gunplay, in the videos below:
