ABSTRACT
This article reports on the conflict between rap artists Jay-Z and R. Kelly, which ended in Kelly being kicked off of a concert tour with Jay-Z. From a business standpoint, the Best of Both Worlds tour featuring R&B superstar R. Kelly and rap phenomenon Jay-Z was shaping up to be a success. But by almost any other measure, the high-profile pairing had turned into the worst of both worlds. Kelly and Jay-Z clashed from the start, and the tensions reached a climax during the Oct. 29 concert in New York City, when Kelly abruptly stormed off the stage claiming he had seen audience members with guns. On Nov. 1 Kelly retaliated with a $75 million lawsuit against Jay-Z, claiming breach of contract and sabotage.
