JAY-Z didn't just collaborate with R. Kelly for a song or two. He did two entire albums (The Best of Both Worlds and Unfinished Business) with the embattled R&B star. And a tour in-between.
Is this going to be a problem for Hov, as the entire entertainment industry turns on Kelly for his alleged crimes against girls?
This unearthed 2002 interview Jay's then-rival Nas did with Wendy Williams suggests that it could be:
"Yeah, I could have shown the R. Kelly video that everybody's talking about. Made fun of it. Jay's hanging out with him. When Jay and (Kelly) were in there doing Best Of Both Worlds you can't tell me he didn't see a 14-year old girl come into the studio and sit on R. Kelly's lap. You can't tell me when he was working on that album he ain't never saw no 14-year-old girl come in the vicinity."
Does Jay have any responsibility for Kelly or nah?
