T.i. And Shawty Lo's Entourages Clash At Rap Awards

The 2008 Dirty Awards in Atlanta, Georgia, ended in chaos on Monday (24Nov08) when police were forced to break up a scuffle between members of T.I.'s entourage and rival rapper SHAWTY LO's D4L camp.
The fourth annual hip-hop prizegiving, which was held at the Georgia International Convention Center and hosted by David Banner, had to be halted by authorities after two separate fights between feuding groups.
According to AllHipHop.com, the trouble began when Shawty Lo took to the stage to perform Don't I - his version of Ain't I, a track originally recorded by T.I.'s artist Yung L.A.
The performance was interrupted when an audience member - reported as rising rapper Alfamega - threw a chair on stage in protest to the song's lyrics, which allegedly included shots at T.I.'s Grand Hustle crew.
Another member of Grand Hustle rushed the stage, sparking a fight with Shawty Lo and prompting security to intervene.
Moments later, T.I. came on stage to accept an award - and he used the opportunity to distance himself from the night's violence, scolding the misbehaving rappers for disrupting the event.
But when the Live Your Life hitmaker played a set that included his own verse from Ain't I, more trouble ensued, with one member of Grand Hustle jumping offstage and into the crowd, allegedly assaulting a man believed to be Shawty Lo's brother.
Cops were called in to put an end to the clash, using pepper spray to break up the fight, before shutting down the ceremony altogether and evacuating the audience.
Information about award winners was unavailable as WENN went to press.
