    Jay-Z first gave it to R. Kelly on wax, and now he's giving it to him in court.

    After dissing Kelly for his lawsuit against him on the "Drop It Like It's Hot" remix, the rapper has now filed a countersuit against the R&B singer in Manhattan Supreme Court.

    Kelly filed his $75 million action in November against Jay-Z, his business associates and the tour's promoter when he got kicked off the Best of Both Worlds tour (see "R. Kelly Sues Jay-Z For $75 Million, Claims Sabotage"). The duo's last show together saw Kelly walking off the stage at New York's Madison Square Garden after telling the audience he thought he saw someone waving a gun at him; he was later pepper-sprayed backstage by one of Jay-Z's associates (see "Jay-Z, R. Kelly Part Ways As Best Of Both Worlds Tour Collapses"). But Jay-Z argues in his suit, filed January 24, that he was forced to kick Kelly off the trek, which he calls a "nightmarish odyssey fueled by R. Kelly's financial woes, insecurities, and unsafe and unpredictable behavior," which included showing up late and unprepared and leaving early in tears.

    Jay had previously said in a statement at the time of the tour's cancellation that Kelly had scrapped three performances with less than 24 hours' notice and delayed multiple shows by hours: "In Chicago and Baltimore, R. Kelly was not 'ready.' In Cincinnati, Milwaukee and Hartford, R. Kelly was not 'willing.' In St. Louis and New York, R. Kelly was not 'able.' "

    Jay-Z, who depicted Kelly's suit as a "waste of time" in the "Drop It Like It's Hot" remix (see "Jay-Z Dissing R. Kelly On 'Drop It Like It's Hot' Remix?"), now calls Kelly's lawsuit a "calculated stunt" designed "to deflect attention from his upcoming felony trial involving an alleged sexual liaison with a 14-year-old child."

    In response, Kelly's lawyer Ed Hayes said that he doesn't take Jay's suit "too seriously," saying his client is "a creative genius, and of course, no one expects geniuses to act like everybody else."

    yeah...niggas is wildin' now.

    i have never listened to a complete r. kelly album, but i can tell you every single last one of his singles are dope as hell. jay-z seems like he has a legitimate lawsuit going on here, though. it must be crazy suing somebody that was once of your good friends and people in the studio you chilled with and recorded with. i just wish both lawsuits got nullified and they squashed this, but when money is involved, anything can happen.
