DJ Drama recounts the Rick Ross and Young Jeezy beef at the 2012 BET Awards.
The Rick Ross and Young Jeezy beef heated up at the 2012 BET Awards!
A fight broke out backstage at the BET Hip Hop Awards tonight between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy that resulted in shots being fired.
According to sources, Rick Ross and Young Jeezy exchanged words backstage and started pushing and shoving each other. BET security and bodyguards for each of the rappers eventually separated the two.
After the fight had been broken up, a member of Rick Ross’ entourage pulled out a gun while in the parking lot and shots were fired.
That’s not all. Multiple sources who witnessed the fray confirmed to MTV News that Ross’ protégé Gunplay was also involved in fisticuffs with members of 50 Cent’s G-Unit camp. Gunplay was seen with visible wounds and a witness told MTV News that he was put into handcuffs and detained, but a separate source close to Gunplay told MTV that he was not arrested.
Seems like wherever the Game goes there’s trouble, this time with CTE rapper 211! During Lil Wayne’s birthday party in Hollywood California the 2 rappers exchanged heated words according to TMZ and all hell broke loose. Check out some of the footage.
It was a long long journey to get here. We started off in 2003. What’s up Bruce… Bruce [Ratner] came to meet me in the 40/40… -Jay-Z
However, at some point Bruce Ratner realized he’d run out of money and needed to bring in an outside investor to give him the cash he needed in order to keep not paying taxes on the land. He brought in Mikhail Prokhorov, one of the richest men in Russia and a noted sports/prostitute enthusiast, in to bail him out. Prokhorov bought a controlling share of the Nets, and Ratner had the money to continue building the Barclays Center—but not, it turned out, the housing and office developments he wanted. So the team—which was once a sideshow—became the main attraction.
Prokhorov got a team, Ratner kept the arena, but Jay-Z got the credit, which is the most important thing. He benefits from being able to pretend to own the Nets in some pretty obvious ways. Namely, it perpetuates the myth that he’s hip-hop’s greatest businessman.
