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."

They were both at the BET Hip Hop Awards? Why? Were they receiving an elderly achievement award? Maybe when one of them has a hit in modern times they will have a leg to stand on again.

I love this website. This proves the theory that we all have about white people, that you are all secretly racist. You spew crap like this in the privacy of your own home, but in public you try to pretend like you have plenty on __________(fill in the blank) friends...

"that resulted in shots being fired" When are you going to stand up and act like fu***** civilized people. It it ridiculous when i can't tell the way the blacks act in America or the Arabs act in the middle east. All some of you want to do is tear chit up, burn something or shoot somebody.

Maybe they should have a western style gunfight and square off in the street.
Of course, that would show style.
These knucklehead "rappers" would prefer to do it do it with ghetto style, simply spray bullets indiscriminately.
Nothing but cowards with no social conscience.
