Controversy and awards events go hand in hand, if it is not about issues with biased selections then it is about star egos clashing. Something on these lines happened at the BET Awards function on 29th September; we don’t know yet what caused the protagonists to to combust but there were two scuffles reported; the first one featured Rick Ross and Young Jeezy which according to eyewitnesses led to gunshots being fired in the parking lot. The local police; however, maintained that not only was no one injured, there were no gunshots fired.
The second fight involved MMG rapper Gunplay and members of 50-Cent’s G-Unit crew. This happened in the artist’s trailer area and was a bit of a mismatch because it had Gunplay being jumped by at least members of the G-Unit crew; it ended with Gunplay being subdued with pepper spray by the cops and being arrested as well.
