In the clip, which was obtained by TMZ, a shirtless Ross can been seen backstage in a hallway at the Atlanta Civic Center, arguing with a group of men, reportedly members of Jeezy's entourage. While the Corporate Thugz Entertainment head isn't seen in the video, it's apparent he is the man Ross' words are aimed at.
Security steps in and a mess of pushing erupts but no physical blows are caught on the tape. The only casualty: a mirror that falls off the wall and breaks.
BET issued a statement regarding the melee.
"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."
The 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards air Tues., Oct. 9, at 8PM.
