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."

Stupid rappers. Why is it that rappers can't go anywhere without a gun? Why is it that rappers won't fight with their hands? Oh, and nice name for a rapper, Gunplay. Damn stupid rappers. Rappers are so stupid. I don't hate rappers, I have friends that are rappers, but damm. These are some stupid ass rappers.

You can take the grass skirts off of them, take them from the hut, but you can never get the African spear chucker out of them. Not surprised. Anytime you get a grout of civilized citizens together who are highly educated. And proud to be American. The sad part is we have one of these in the White House

My first instinct was to spew a bunch of hatred onwards the hip hop community. But you don't see Jay-z acting like this, it seems like 50 Cent has cleaned up his act. LL Cool Jay has always stayed away from this behavior. Kanye is just an *******, but doesn't seem violent. I'm sure there are others I'm missing who know how to act. These two are just immature idiots.

This guy is not even Rick Ross. The real Freeway Ricky Ross needs to get his name back. Do some homework to seek the truth.
