What did the five fingers say to the face….?!

Rapper Nipsey Hussle may miss the BET Awards tonight after he was caught on video slapping a BET staff member.

TMZ reports:

We’re told the issue was whether or not Nipsey could move some cones and drive through a restricted area.

Tempers flare, and after the guy smacks a traffic cone out of the hand of Nipsey’s bodyguard … Hussle unloads a hard right slap.

A law officer immediately grabs Nipsey to keep the fight from escalating … and then he gets back in his car.

We’re told the reason for the tussle was Nipsey Hussle was late for a rehearsal and thought he could drive past the cones … but security tried to stop him.
