R. Kelly has addressed his long-running feud with Jay-Z revealing that they have reconciled with each other.
The R&B crooner and Roc Nation boss teamed up in 2002 to record one of hip-hop’s biggest collaborative albums, Best of Both Worlds, merging the two genres together. Jay-Z and R. Kelly went on to record a follow-up Unfinished Business, however, their relationship turned sour in 2004 when they went on tour together, but R. Kelly failed to show up for a show at New York’s Madison Square Gardens.
With almost 10 years passing since their public spat, R. Kelly says he no longer has any beef with the hip-hop mogul and would even consider working with him again.
When asked whether he’s feeling Jigga’s latest collaborative album, Watch The Throne, with Kanye West, Kells replied: “Absolutely; huge fan.”
He then went on to say he and Jay set the bar for collaborative albums, adding: “We walked on the moon first, right?”
“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,” Kells told MTV News of working with Jay-Z again and other artists.
“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.”
