R. Kelly vs. Jay Z

When Jay Z and R. Kelly teamed up for their chart-topping collaborative album Best of Both Worlds in 2002, neither knew that it would be at the expense of their friendship. R. Kelly's legal issues interfered with the duo's touring schedule, so they tried once again on Unfinished Business in 2004. Unfortunately Kelly dropped out of the tour unexpectedly during a stop in New York where the singer claimed someone was threatening his life, leaving Jay holding the mic, which he used to tell the audience, "I don't need that n---a."
