Hip hop scholar David Banner, 42, and singer-turned-reality star Lyfe Jennings, 38, nearly came to blows during a tense town hall meeting in Atlanta on Tuesday.
Banner and Jennings joined hip hop VIPs Jeezy and Tyrese Gibson on a panel discussion held at the Hope Church in Decatur.
The “Real Strategy For Change” meeting was called to find solutions to ease racial tensions in the black community after 2 black men were killed by police in Louisiana and Minnesota last week.
But things quickly got heated when, according to Channel 2 Actions News, Banner suggested that the black community force the police to suffer financial and physical consequences for their actions.
"You sound crazy!" Jennings yelped. "I'm a tell you, you sound crazy!"
"What we going through is crazy," said a male voice.
What we going through is crazy, but we ain't gonna create more [unintelligible] by telling these people to bring f_cking guns against the po-lice!" said Jennings as the crowd stood and clapped.
"That's stupid! It's stupid!" he said as the two men squared off on stage.
"Hold on," said peacemaker Tyrese, standing between the two men. Tyrese reminded his friends that his daughter was in the audience.
