Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG Houston, TX -- Rapper Mike Jones offered the following statement, concerning his actions with fellow Houston emcee Trae The Truth at this past weekend's Ozone Awards.

"First off before I point any fingers, I personally do want to apologize for the incident that happened at the Ozone Awards. I hope you all don't get the wrong impression of me or my city. The incident that I was put in was totally unexpected and totally unprofessional. If I knew this was going to happen at a big event such as the Ozone Awards, first, I would not have brought my mother and second, I would have done everything in my power to prevent it. Knowing that this event was big, not only for me and other artist but for the city as a whole; I pray and hope that you the people can see and understand me and the unfortunate situation I was put in. I am aware of how big this event was for the city of Houston and the entire hip hop community. Please know that I had no intention of tarnishing this great opportunity, nor the experiences of those who participated in it. I apologize once again for everything that happened but I cannot apologize for having to defend myself from someone bringing unexpected or un-called violence to me and my family at any time. I apologize once again and I appreciate your support and understanding."

Mike Jones' next studio album The Voice of the Streets is set to drop before the end of the year.
