Ray J should know better. The for the Love of Ray J star sparked a violent altercation at Club Nokia in Los Angeles early this morning after saying the two magic words that would send most women into death-con kill mode.
"I ain’t no fake-ass n--- from Carson (Ray J’s hometown)," she yelled as Ray seemed to be trying to calm her down.
From there an unidentified man joined the fracas and fists began to fly. Security was able to separate the two as Ray was getting the best of his opponent.
All this happened after a night of performances at the first annual West Coast Fest, which brought together a host of Cali rap all-stars (E-40, Too $hort, Mack 10).
No arrests were made following the confrontation.
California rapper Bad Azz has been identified as the person who clashed with Ray J last night. The former Death Row artist was attempting to settle a longstanding beef from 2005. After TMZ reported that Ray J won the altercation with the help of his bodyguards, Bad Azz called in to Power 105’s Breakfast Club to give his own side of the story.
The longtime member of Snoop Dogg’s Dogg Pound Gangsta Crip crew claims that their feud stems from a 2005 incident in which Ray had Suge Knight jump him in Las Vegas. "I took off on Ray J’s a-- last night at the Nokia Center," said Bad Azz. "I’ve probably seen him twice since about 2005, when he got me jumped by Suge Knight."
Bad Azz claims that their friendship went sour after Snoop Dogg refused to allow Ray on his tour bus because of his affiliation with Suge Knight. When Bad Azz informed Ray that he wasn’t allowed on the bus, the “Wait A Minute” singer lost it on his friend.
Bad Azz said that Ray J replied by saying “y’all scared of Suge Knight, that’s why you won’t let me on the bus." Bad Azz told him, "F--- you and Suge Knight," and said he would see him later. He didn’t think anything of it because of his friendship with Ray J but was jumped by Suge and "six or seven" other men soon after in Las Vegas.
When Bad Azz recognized Ray at Club Nokia in Los Angeles last night, he saw it as an opportunity for retribution. "I seen him with Teairra Mari last night," he told Power 105’s DJ Envy, Charlamagne and Angela Yee. "I seen him taking pictures and smiling, so I kinda stepped back. I knew he didn’t see me."
Bad Azz admits to attacking Ray J in the backstage area of Club Nokia. "Soon as he walked by, I bing, bing, bing, threw a couple to the head." Footage captured by TMZ shows the fight being broken up. "I respect him just one bit because he tried to fight back a little bit. It wasn’t nothing. His homies helped him. Nobody got super mixed up," said Bad Azz.
Bad Azz also made claims about Ray J’s sexuality, claiming that he was involved with a male producer named Young Buck. "He got a boyfriend named Young Buck and they be doin' it to each other," said Bad Azz of rumors he once heard. "I’ve never been with Ray J alone in a room doing anything homosexual, so I really don’t know if it’s true," he clarified.
Bad Azz, who famously appeared on 2Pac’s "Krazy" from the 1996 album The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, resolved that this would be the only time he spoke publically on the incident. "I’m about my music… My life ain’t about fighting and negativity and all of that sh--."
