A fight broke out backstage at the BET Hip Hop Awards tonight between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy that resulted in shots being fired .. sources at the awards tell TMZ. 

According to our sources, Ross and Jeezy exchanged words backstage and started pushing and shoving each other. We're told BET security and bodyguards for each of the rappers eventually separated the two.

Our sources on the scene say that 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.

We're told Jeezy and Ross are still at the awards, which are being taped tonight in Atlanta and air next month.


A spokesperson for the Atlanta Police Department tells TMZ, "Shortly after 7:15 pm Saturday, a fight broke out in the parking lot at the Atlanta Civic Center (where the BET Awards were being taped) between two groups. Atlanta Police Department officers on scene responded to break up the fight and used OC spray in the process. Individuals fled the scene. There were no arrests or reports of serious injuries. Reports of shots fired appear to be untrue." Our sources maintain shots were fired.

We're also told that 50 Cent got into it with a rapper named Gunplay, a protégé of Rick Ross. 

Can't we all just get along?

A rep for BET tells TMZ, "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."

Of course no one was hit by the gunfire because for some reason the two rapper's "entourages" insist on holding their guns sideways when they shoot. Probably because it was in a movie.

You're doing your race a disservice. Please stop. Please stop making black folk look like uneducated, brainless, piles of sh*t. Please, this is what you're doing. You're propagating racism, you're proving the racists right - don't do this. Don't prove them right. Get a college degree, talk like a human being, or at least read a book once in a while if you can't go to college. Life will thank you, your race will thank you.

And people wonder why 99% of the population has total contempt for these idiots.If these morons didn't have a talents that sells they would be dead or in jail. This is where they will end up any way. Hopefully they will just kill them selves and not any innocent people.
