50 Cent and Fat Joe Share the Stage at BET Hip Hop Awards
While Rick Ross and Young Jeezy were brawling backstage, 50 Cent and Fat Joe were making peace onstage. The notorious rivals squashed their beef at the BET Hip Hop Awards.
Both rappers came together during a tribute to Violator manager Chris Lighty, who passed away last month after an apparent suicide. Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Diggy Simmons, and A Tribe Called Quest also took part in the performance at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta.
One fan applauded 50 for burying the beef. “Thanks Chris would have wanted joe there,” he responded.
The performance may have even opened the door to a collaboration. “Now that @50cent & fatjoe squashed things a dope collabo would be nice,” tweeted one fan, to which 50 replied, “Ill check it out.”
Watch them unite when the BET Hip Hop Awards airs on October 9 at 8 p.m.
