The bodyguard named Bryon ‘Big Naz’ Williams told ‘Murder Master Music Show’ he had to snatch the rapper up before an argument with Knight’s crew escalated further at the Source awards 15 years ago.
“I noticed that, in the middle of the aisle, he’s beefing with all these guys in red shirts,” Williams recalled. “I noticed his face changing, and he’s turning like, tomato-red. And there’s a sea of red guys around him … I had to bust through the middle and snatch him up.”
Bryon, along with Dr Dre’s bodyguards were able to whisk the rapper away. “We were in beast mode the whole time” he said.
Afterwards, Bryon spoke to the people Eminem almost came to blows with and discovered they were representing Death Row Records and label boss, Suge.
The scuffle was allowed to happen in the first place because of the seating arrangements at the Source Awards.
“Bodyguards couldn’t sit with the artists,” Bryon Williams said. “I think that was by design ’cause I think they really wanted the artists to be able to network with each other, but it also gives people who got beef with other artists to get at them.”
