G-Unit affiliate Mike Knox has stepped forward to add clarity to last weekend’s BET Hip Hop Awards brawl between his camp and Maybach Music Group’s Gunplay.
According to Knox, Gunplay is merely using 50 Cent‘s name to gain a strong buzz.
“You keep attaching 50’s name to the situation because you know that’s the only way you’re gonna get press,” Knox said in an interview. “He was running from an a** whooping — he was saying I was security, he was saying I was a security guard. I don’t know where he got that. I guess he felt like I was security because I d*mn near broke my hand on him — when people are fighting, they usually pepper spray the person that’s the most aggressive or the biggest person and I was the biggest person. So, he wasn’t pepper sprayed at the time.” (Hot 107.9)
Knox went on say Gunplay took some sneak jabs at him after pepper spray filled the area.
“They pepper sprayed all of us. Everybody tried to run from it. I slipped. Anybody knows if they’ve ever been pepper sprayed before, you can’t really see anything, you can’t really talk. You try to get yourself together because you’re caught off guard. I caught a real big batch of it. So, when the video starts, I’m already on the ground and you can see the pepper spray in the air. Then he jumps up and runs over and starts to hit me in the back. If that’s what he felt he needed to do to redeem himself and make himself like he did something, that’s cool. But he got treated like a dope fiend.” (Hot 107.9)
This week, Gunplay gave his take on just how much of a break Fif and company caught.
The rapper says 50 Cent WAS involved in the action … but was “hiding behind security.” Gunplay says he was trying to “break his f*ckin’ neck.” Gunplay says he did manage to beat down one of the guys in 50’s entourage — “kicked one of their fat-asses … kicked them off in the dirt.” Gunplay says cops then rushed in and sprayed him with mase. Gunplay — who’s friends with Rick Ross — says his fight had nothing to do with Rick’s altercation with Young Jeezy’s crew at the BET Awards … but explains, “We just goin’ at it with everybody … let’s go kill ‘em all.” Doesn’t sound like he was joking … Gunplay told us, “If you’re playin’ with me, you’re playin’ with fire … might get gunned down, ya never know.” (TMZ)
The rapper initially hit up New York’s Power 105.1 radio station to speak on what went down.
“First of all, I’m not going to say the donkey’s name ’cause I ain’t gonna ruin a career that’s already ruined,” Gunplay said. “We’re going to call him donkey because he’s the donkey of the day. The donkey walks with eight other donkeys — I was getting ready to go catch my ride, police told me I couldn’t leave the trailers — I turn around and see the donkey with eight other donkeys and it was either me jump the barrier and run or stand, pull up my pants and knuckle it out with the donkey — he walks up to me, nodded at one of the donkeys and one of the donkeys set it off and we rumbled — the pepper spray came — [it was] that man security. Get outta here, man, man got security around him, man. … I was by myself like I usually am.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
