Rick Ross Attempted To Choke Young Jeezy At BET Awards

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Rick Ross is shedding new light on his 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards skirmish with Young Jeezy. Ross sat down with Miami radio station 99 Jamz and says that he indeed tried to choke the Snowman when he saw him in Atlanta.

“This is nothing personal to me," says Ross. "At the BET Awards it basically just boiled down to uh, me running across Young Jeezy. He had five security guards in front of him, five police officers behind him and we crossed paths I said ‘What’s up?’ soon as he said ‘What’s up?’ I tried to choke him. His security guards hemmed me up; whoever the big black dude with the bumps on his face, he should give that dude something special for Christmas.”

Alrighty then. In September, Rick and Jeezy reportedly got into a shoving match backstage before the scuffle spilled outside into the parking lot and got messier.
