Kendrick Lamar's BET Hip Hop Awards Win 'Ruined' by Fight
Kendrick Lamar isn’t amused at all by the fight that broke out backstage at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards, especially because it overshadowed his win.
“It ruined my whole moment,” the “Swimming Pools” MC shared today during his visit to Power 105s “The Breakfast Club.” Kendrick won the “Lyricist of the Year” accolade at the Atlanta awards show, but the Young Jeezy and Rick Ross brawl that ensued completely stole his thunder.
“Nobody wanted to talk about that Lyricist of the Year award. I went backstage and I’m hearing all type of rumbling and stuff and I’m like, ‘What’s happening?'” he recalled.
His security told him to stay in his dressing room. “Next thing you know I found out it’s a scuffle or what not.”
Kendrick is gearing up to release his highly-anticipated debut good kid, m.A.A.d city on October 22. The 17-track deluxe edition boasts appearances from Drake (“Poetic Justice”), Mary J. Blige (“Now or Never”), Jay Rock (“Money Trees”), and two records with his mentor Dr. Dre.
