R. Kelly Still "Huge Fan" Of Jay-Z Despite Feud

R. Kelly says he still appreciates Jay-Z, even though the two had a falling out.

In 2004, Jay-Z and R. Kelly's tour in support of The Best of Both Worlds and Unfinished Business infamously fell apart. In October 2004, R. Kelly stopped in the middle of a performance in New York's Madison Square Garden, leaving the stage and later claiming that men were waving guns at him. R. Kelly later filed a $75 million lawsuit against Hov for removing him from the tour.

Despite all the drama, R. Kelly says that he still listens to Jay's music. "Absolutely; huge fan," said Kelly in an interview with MTV News.

"I love a good marriage — I love love. Anything that works for me, anything that feels good to my soul, that feels like this is what I should do, I'm gonna do it," continued Kelly. "I don't care what it is, who it's with. As long as it's positive and it works for both parties, I'm with it."

Kelly added that he enjoyed Watch The Throne, the collaborative project between Jay-Z and Kanye West, and that he "still listen[s] to Jay's stuff."

    "But the grammys wouldnt have kelly perform because theyd much rather go for whats trendy like lady gaga or nicki minaj" They're afraid Kelly would urinate on Beyonce.

    Whether you like it or not this is the King of R&B. It's too bad people never got over the scandal. Him and Frnak Ocean rule R&B. Sincerely, those are the 2 best R&B writers of all time. Appreciate the art and talent.

    Man I agree Birdman with R.Kelly would have been a garbage album. Kells couldn't save that non rapper from creating a weeed plate, and he knew that. That would have damage his career forever why do people think that he can rap really. R.Kelly that the smarted thing to do that nigguh is all ass, no skills. Even his ghostwriter is ass whoever he is, tell that niguh to stop! Dr. Dre ain't the best rapper but he still sounds a thousand times better than Birdman.

    and yall wonder why yall can't keep or find a real woman, because ya didnt grow up listening to real music, Do you remember, strip for you, or have you ever been to a kells concert, i mean who else gives a better concert? who? name one person that give a better concert than kells besides earth wind and fire? for god sakes the man made i wish, when a womans fed up, trapped in the closet, bump and grind but the funny part is everyone that commented on here probably was made to one of those songz...including trey songz lol

    R.Kelly need to act his ages,

    "but he can still get standing ovations at the soul train awards and have everyone in the crowd singing along to every word of every song" Yeah. The Soul Train Awards, not the Grammy's.

    • Anonymous

      kells wouldve rocked that crowd too. And dont act like the grammys arent the biggest label influenced award show in the inudstry. Be honest with yourself, if you wouldve thrown r. kelly onto the most recent grammy performance list he wouldve shat on all of them performing except MAYBE chris brown simply because brown dances and kells doesnt. But the grammys wouldnt have kelly perform because theyd much rather go for whats trendy like lady gaga or nicki minaj

    R Kelly should have did the album with Birdman. Since he faked on Birdman, he got what he deserved.

    • Anonymous

      Im a huge fan of R. Kelly and i can actually say im glad they didnt do the album. If they wouldve the album wouldve just been carried by R. Kelly. Birdmans raps wouldve been just as terrible as they are now. Nothing special. Birdman was just mad that he couldnt eat off R. Kelly like he does with all his other artists.

  • The_Beat

    He's man enough to say he listens to Trey Songz that's growth that he's displaying through his talk

    • Anonymous

      i agree that it is growth. Even if Songz has bitten the mans style harder than a pitbull. It still shows growth

    man R must stand for retarded beetlejuice on crack and acid makes mo sense than this nigga lol Even Garry Glitter wouldnt share a stage with this sexual pedo

    • Anonymous

      btw how the hell is R supposed to stand for retaded beetlejuice on crack and acid. Thats 4 words dumbass. and also calling someone a pedo would mean you dont need to add in sexual. Stupid kid

    • Anonymous

      but he can still get standing ovations at the soul train awards and have everyone in the crowd singing along to every word of every song he sings. Kells doesnt need to share a stage. He could rock one for hours just off his own hits alone

    i hope they can end their feud and make history once again.if Jay-Z can forgive Nas for ETHER i know he can forgive R.Kelly

    • Anonymous

      as a fan of Kelly and Hov you can tell that both albums were just throw aways put together. They new the album would do great on its own just based on their names. They put no real effort into it like they should have/could have. Best of Both Worlds couldve been a masterpiece but instead it was just a bunch of throw away songs they BOTH halfass put together

    • Up North

      What history? Both those collab projects were terrible. Jay and Nas reconciled because they repected one another at the end of the day and they took each other to their limits. Kellz made a damn fool of himself and hasn't been rigt since.
