Vibe Awards Disrupted By Brawl   Print 
Tuesday, 16 November 2004

hip-hop newsThe second annual Vibe Awards was disrupted by a brawl Monday night (November 15).

Reports are sketchy, but according to eyewitnesses, Vibe magazine founder
Quincy Jones and Snoop Dogg were onstage and preparing to present Dr. Dre with the Vibe Legend Award.  Dre, who was standing next to his wife, was attacked near the stage when a man approached in a friendly manner, and then all of a sudden punched Dre in the head.

Things got out of control when bodyguards and part of the G-Unit posse jumped in to protect Dre. News video showed chairs being thrown, punches flying, people chasing one another and some being restrained. There were some reports that a man with the G-Unit's entourage was stabbed, but a spokesperson for the group had no comment on the matter.

Things calmed down about 10 minutes later, and the show went on. Accepting his award, Dre told the crowd he wouldn't let incidents like that one slow him down. Later, the audience at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, was treated to a performance of "Drop It Like It's Hot" by Snoop with Pharrell Williams. Jadakiss also performed and was joined by Anthony Hamilton and Common.

The Vibe Awards are scheduled to air Tuesday at 8 p.m. on UPN.
