Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill recently offered his take on the building tensions between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy, admitting he has no interest in seeing them trade blows.
Shortly after their publicized BET Hip Hop Awards altercation, Meek said negative outcomes could result if they keep beefing.
“I don’t participate in none of that,” Meek said in an interview. “I advise them to chill before somebody get killed and they be having ten rappers on a song talking about making the rest in peace tribute song — I don’t get involved in nothing like that. I’ve seen bad things in my hood. I know kids that in the middle of a battle, start shooting over a battle rap.” (Parker Vision)
Earlier in the month, DJ Drama said Grand Hustle’s T.I. could possibly bring Jeezy and Ross back to friendly terms.
“Maybe they’re not gonna be friends, maybe they’re not gonna go out to dinner, but hopefully, we can probably get some music from it,” Drama said in an interview. “I’m thinking now that it’s a public situation, maybe that somebody can step in. Maybe Tip can do it. Nah, Tip can. Tip is, both of those guys are friends’ of Tip. I’m not gonna say it’s the first thing on his mind, but at the end of the day — if it was something I could do, I would love to do that because I respect both of them. It doesn’t seem like something that we can’t get past.” (This Is 50)
Recently, Tip revealed his opinion on why the fight may have popped off at the BET Hip Hop Awards.
“I didn’t even know about the fight,” T.I. revealed in an interview. “Men everywhere, we have huge egos and lots of pride. I don’t know that particular incident personally, but most fights that I hear about, it’s about pride and ego. I can’t speak for every case. I don’t know much about this case.” (KTLA)
Fight footage initially hit the Internet and showed what exactly went down.
The BET Awards brawl between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy took an army of guards to break it up and left a trail of destruction backstage — and TMZ got the intense footage on tape. In the video, security can be seen stepping in between the various combatants almost immediately, separating everyone before the fight got out of hand. A shirtless Rick Ross can be seen yelling before being escorted away from the scene. Whoever Ross was yelling at tried to follow after him, but security stepped in before he could get there. There was one casualty however — a random mirror. According to Atlanta PD, no arrests were made. (TMZ)
