T.I Says That BET Hip-Hop Awards Fight Was Down To Egos

The fall-out from last weekend's spat at the Bet Hip-Hop Awards won't be shown on the television recording airing this forthcoming weekend. But, according to rapper T.I, the damage to its reputation has already been done, after news broke out that a multi-person fight occurred during a tribute to the late hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty at the event.

"I didn't even know about the fight," T.I. said in an interview with KTLA. "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." Two separate fights broke out; one between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy's camps, and another between MMG's Gunplay and member of G-Unit's entourage.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Complex, BET's president of music programming Stephen G. Hill played down some of the more outlandish rumors surrounding the event."Reckless tweeting - one person said there was gunshots. Somebody took that," Hill said. "I used to do this thing when I was a little kid. I used to say something outrageous. I'd say, 'I read that somewhere.' I wrote it down, closed my eyes, and then I read it, and so it's true. That's exactly what happens with Twitter. People read it, so they think it's true, and people retweet it like, 'Oh my God, there were gunshots.' 'Cause some fool tweeted, 'I heard gunshots.' There were no gunshots."
