Details are emerging as two of Atlanta’s major players came to a clash at the 2008 Dirty Awards in Atlanta. A scuffle ensued that reportedly left entourage and affiliates of Jeezy‘s CTE squad covered in blood.
A witness told HipHopDX late this evening that they saw Aphilliates and La Embassy President La The Darkman, presently signed to SRC Records, along with members of his entourage, responding after they were verbally taunted by members of the CTE entourage. Over five people were reportedly involved, and although claims stated that it was the CTE side that left injured, no official word has been given.
The 2008 Dirty Awards were held this evening at The Georgia International Convention Center. The awards were hosted by David Banner, and attendees were said to include Ludacris, OutKast, DJ Drama and Janelle Monae.
UPDATE: Young Jeezy‘s publicist contacted HipHopDX stating that the witness reports are false. Per her reports, Young Jeezy was in New York at the time of the Dirty Awards, refuting reports that he was involved in the incident.
With witnesses claiming several CTE members involved in the altercation, DX will keep you updated.
UPDATE: Further reports confirm that Young Jeezy was not involved, however CTE affiliates “Fatboy” and
HipHopDX will update as more information and confirmation is given. Witnesses gave no mention of police involvement or hospitalization.
