Gunplay Talks About Being Jumped At The BET Hip-Hop Awards [VIDEO]
Although details surrounding the backstage brawl at the BET Hip-Hop Awards is still a bit sketchy, at least one rapper is willing to talk about what happened. Gunplay was involved in a heated fist fight that spilled outside the Atlanta Civic Center.
For some reason 50 Cent and Gunplay got beef and it all played out over the weekend. In a statement released to Vibe.com the rapper said, “First of all, I ain’t gonna say the donkey’s name [50 Cent] cause I ain’t gonna ruin a career already ruined. So the donkey walks with eight other donkeys, I was gettin ready to catch my ride. Police said I couldn’t leave the trailers…It was either me jump the barrier and run or stand, pull up my pants and knuckle it out with the donkey…So he walks up to me and he nodded to one of the donkeys and one of the donkeys set it off and we rumble. I stood up in the tank like a real G supposed to with five bodyguards that’s trained to kill a human being…I lost my footing, got right back up and then the pepper spray came.”
He didn’t stop there, he also called into TMZ and gave them details on what went down that night:
-Shortly after all the drama was brought under control, the APD issued this statement regarding gunshots being fired at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards taping:
“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.
The suits at BET are NOT happy with the situation and issued a statement of their own, “Tonight during a taping of the BET Hip Hop Awards 2012 [not the BET Awards which went down without incident two months ago] an altercation between two rap entourages broke out backstage. Atlanta police and BET security quickly defused the altercation. According to the Associated Press, police spokesman Carlos Campos said officers responded to the scuffle at around 7:30 p.m. EST Campos says there were no shots fired. More drama unfolded as two men were involved in a fistfight in the parking lot of the venue.”
