A fist fight reportedly broke out between Cam'ron and Tru Life in front of New York's Club Stereo Monday night (April 30). Forunately, no one was hurt or arrested.

Radio personality, Ed Lover, broke the news on New York's Power 105 morning show, saying that although the incident started as a verbal altercation, it ended in blows thrown by Tru Life.

"What happened last night was Cam was standing in front of Club Stereo and Tru Life confronted him about what's been going on back and forth on the mixtapes and they got into a physical confrontation. Pretty much Tru Life hit Cam, cops broke it up and everyone dispersed," Ed Lover told SOHH.com this morning.

Aside from reporting the news, Ed Lover said that he is trying to diffuse the situation, talking to both camps and serving as a mediator until they make peace.

"As an OG in this business, I have a lot of love for both camps and I'm trying to mediate this because it's starting to get to a point where it's getting out of hand now," the radio disc jockey explained. "The worst thing we need is somebody really getting seriously injured. Having a little fight is one thing, but you know when it comes to that, the gunplay comes into it. We don't need that. Hip-hop got enough problems right now; we don't need another black eye because of some dumb beef. It can be squashed."

So far Ed Lover has spoken to Dipset's Jim Jones and Tru Life, and seems optimistic about getting the rival rappers to have a sit down and work out their problems.

"I think I'll be able to do that and with the help of some of the other OGs in the business, we'll be able to do that," Ed Lover said to Sohh.com.

"I know both of these camps and I'm trying to do as much as I can do to mediate and at least get some kind of dialogue," he continued.

The beef between to the rival camps have stayed on mixtapes and YouTube until last night.
