TMZ caught it all on camera. Tip and Game were on site as members of their entourages got into a heated verbal exchange with authorities outside L.A.'s Supperclub. Two of the rappers' crew were brutally beaten.
The bloodied men, however, were not attacked by cops but by club security guards. Although neither have pressed charges, the second man was visibly outnumbered and kicked in the face while he was on the ground. They were taken to an area hospital, reports TMZ.
T.I. and Game left the venue after the incident and were met in the parking lot by a throng of cops.
More than 15 officers lined up with billy clubs in hand as the rap stars attempted to thwart the situation from escalating. "This a crime scene? Y'all got a lotta people out here … gon' head and hit that good lawyer," Tip said. He also tells his crew to stay back from authorities. By the tape's end, the two are seen heading back into the club.
Neither have released a statement about the run-in.
