Ozone Awards Update: Rap-a-Lot Not Talking; Trae and Mike Jones Are
The fallout continues from last night's brawl between Trae and Mike Jones at the Ozone Awards; by several accounts, the two Houston rappers have had beef for a good minute. Rocks Off called Rap-a-Lot Records for a statement, and the label's publicist Sarah Lee was nothing if not diplomatic.
"As far as I know right now, no one wants to give a statement on the scuffle," she said. "I just know it did happen but it didn't last long."

Frankly, Rocks Off thinks this whole thing smacks of a great big publicity stunt on both rappers' part. We'll let you know if anything else happens, though; hopefully, former HoustonSoReal and current AustinSurreal point man Matt Sonzala, who was at the awards, will check in eventually. - Chris Gray
