According to Black College Wire, a large fight, consisting of as many as 15 men (the majority wearing white T-shirts), happened at a “Back to School” party and Greek Step-Off at Tennessee State University
The fight broke out during Yo Gotti’s song “Yeah, Yeah” which apparently had partygoers “bucking,” an aggressive form of dancing similar to the Memphis dance “buck jumping”, but with a twist in which participants jump and bump into each other.
As to whether or not the song was the blame of the fight was not posted in the article. However, Student Activities Director Ronald Myles stated more adequate security could have prevented the brawl, as there were not enough officers to contain the perpetrators.
“At the event there were only about five officers, which was probably a mistake on our part,” Myles said. “We probably needed as many as 20 officers for such a large facility and the number of people who came.” Myles put that number at 3,000.
In a letter to students, Freeman, vice president of student services, wrote:
“It was a shame that a few people ruined what should have been a homecoming for our fellow Tigers, both old and new.”
