So last night I was in the mix over at the West Coast Fest show at Club Nokia covering the event with Skee TV and I guess at some point backstage Ray J (who was with Tierra Marie) and rapper Bad Azz got into a fight. I met the lady who initially in the footage is arguing with the Ray J and she stated she manages or is affiliated with rapper Stalley from MMG. However, from what I understand the beef between Ray J and Bad Azz goes back further from when Bad Azz had to let Ray J know he wasn’t allowed on Snoop Dogg’s bus because at that time Snoop was distancing himself from known associates of Suge Knight. There was also a situation in the past that sparked bad blood when Ray J supposedly had a heated argument with Suge’s niece from what I understand.
Take a listen to Bad Azz’s side of the story as he called Power 105’s Breakfast Club to clarify details.

You can’t really see clearly what exactly is going on here but just at the beginning of the video you can see a visibly upset Rick Ross looking like he’s ready to go. Ross can be seen just before he goes out of focus taking off his chain like he wants to fight….with numerous police already trying to tone the situation down in the hallway. If you look close you can see DJ Drama in the back as well with a concerned look on his face. Once Rick Ross passes him DJ Drama continues down the hall and books it to go do his radio show before being shouted out by the camera guy.
It’s sad that in the aftermath a perfectly good mirror was destroyed for apparently no good reason. Somebody is looking at some possible bad luck I suppose. Here is DJ Drama’s most current response on the matter he shared with Hip Hop DX.
Here is the video footage of DJ Drama speaking on the confrontation he witnessed after leaving the venue to go host his radio show.
