The big news coming from the BET Awards is the confrontation between Suge Knight and Snoop Dogg. During a commercial break, everyone in the audience thought that they were about to witness a brawl that would shake up hip hop. When someone left their seat that was directly across the aisle from Snoop, Suge Knight decided to relocate. Draped in red leather, Suge sat his large frame in the available seat and immediately had words with his former employee.

Snoop did not back down and had some choice words for Suge as well, the tension was in the air and it looked as if the confrontation would carry into the live broadcast. Before things could escalate, Steve Harvey, the host of the show, asked both men for respect. Suge then went up on stage and spoke to Harvey. “I talked to Suge and asked him for respect and Suge said he would never disrespect the event,” Steve Harvey said in regards to the conversation. Suge then moved towards the stage entrance were he remained for most of the show. Big up to Steve Harvey for handling the situation in such a classy manor.
