3. R. Kelly vs. Jay-Z

As much as the fans anticipated the “Best Of Both Worlds”album and tour, it was evident that Hov had enough of the media circus brought on by the Chi-Town crooner’s statutory rape allegations. Several no shows and a pepper spray attack on R. Kelly from one of Jigga’s crew members backstage was enough to prompt Kelly to sue Hip-Hop’s most celebrated personality for a whopping $75 mil. Hov shot back at Kellz on Snoop’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot (Remix),” where he says, “You’re wasting your time tryin’ to sue S dot/ tell your lawyers take that civil case and drop it like it’s hot.” And his lyrical prophecy came true. According to reports, Jay-Z counter sued but dropped the charges soon after and Mr. Carter shot R. Kelly some hush money, which he used to make the next few hundred episodes of “Trapped In The Closet.”
