Tonight is the taping of the BET Hip Hop Awards, and as we reported earlier in the week, 50 Cent and Fat Joe are scheduled to share the stage to pay tribute to Chris Lighty. Today, during the air check for the show, they took the stage together to rehearse, and also shook hands. Funkmaster Flex was there to witness this historic peacemaking between the two rappers who have been beefing for many years. See Flex's tweet below, and the picture above of the two rappers on stage with Q-Tip in the middle as part of the all-star tribute to the late Chris Lighty.

BET Hip Hop Awards air October 9.
