Kendrick Lamar

The 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards cypher aired last night (10/15) and featured cyphers from TDE (Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and new signee Isaiah Rashad), A$AP Mob (Rocky, Ferg, Twelvy, Nast, and Ant), Lil Kim & Action Bronson, Bone Thugs N Harmony, and more. As you may have heard, Kendrick's verse in the TDE cypher included a much-talked-about diss at Drake. You can read his entire verse (via Complex) and watch videos of the above-mentioned cyphers, below.

Meanwhile, Schoolboy Q and A$AP Mob (Ant, Twelvy, and Nast) are teaming up for a NYC show together TONIGHT (10/16) at Webster Hall as part of CMJ. The show also includes TDE's new signee Isaiah Rashad, in addition to former Odd Future associate Casey Veggies, young Brooklyn rapper Bishop Nehru (who has opened for more than one Black Hippy member in NYC), and The Bots. Tickets for tonight's show are still available, and you can also try to get in with your CMJ badge.

Meanwhile, Kendrick plays with Q at Barclays in November, and returns to that venue with Kanye later that month.

Rick Ross

Tension exploded between Rick Ross' MMG crew, Young Jeezy's camp and G-unit in Atlanta this weekend.

During Saturday's (September 29) taping for BET's 2012 Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta, Rozay and the Snowman reportedly got into a shoving match backstage before the scuffle spilled outside into the parking lot. Shots were fired and at least one man was said to be arrested.

That's not all. Multiple sources who witnessed the fray confirmed to MTV News that Ross' protégé Gunplay was also involved in fisticuffs with members of 50 Cent's G-Unit camp. Gun was seen with visible wounds and a witness told us that the Miami MC was put into handcuffs and detained, but a separate source close to Gunplay told us that he was not arrested. -[MTV News]

The BET Awards took place at the Atlanta Civic Center where, in front of the cameras, both Rick Ross and Young Jeezy's individual sets went off without a hitch, along with a tribute to the revered Chris Lighty (RIP) that featured A Tribe Called Quest, Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe and 50 Cent (the latter two have well documented beef). Check out some video of the Rick Ross/Young Jeezy scuffle (including a broken mirror... bad luck, guys!) courtesy of TMZ below.
