The 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards were taped in Atlanta tonight at the Atlantic Civic Center to be aired in October. The event was interrupted at one point when Rick Ross and Young Jeezy’s entourages met backstage and an altercation of sorts ensued.
The two rappers have had words in the past over Ross’s “BMF” record where he shouts out convicted drug dealer Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory. Jeezy, who is affiliated with BMF Entertainment, released a freestyle over the beat with some lines that were interpreted as a response to Ross: “How you blowin’ money fast/ You don’t know the crew/ Oh, you part of the fam?/ Sh–, I never knew.”

Atlanta’s DJ Drama, who was with Jeezy when his crew ran into Ross and his security, gave his account of what happened on the air during his show on Hot 1079 FM.
“It just went bad, it just went bad back stage,” Drama told his audience tuned in to his Saturday night show. “All parties walked away unscathed, I can tell you that for sure.”
Though there were reports of shots being fired in the parking lot later, DJ Drama says he had already left the venue when that transpired. Watch his full account below.
UPDATE: We have the actual footage of the Rick Ross/Young Jeezy brawl. TMZ was the first to break the video. In the clip, you see Rick Ross screaming at a few people and others getting pushed and shoved. DJ Drama is seen in the video walking away from the incident. View that footage below.
