Cassidy Says He Gave R. Kelly Guns At MSG After Pepper Spray Incident W/ Jay Z (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Whoever was running security at Madison Square Garden a decade ago may have to go into hiding after this one. During an interview with ThisIs50, Cassidy revealed for the first time how him and “a couple of goons” gave R. Kelly a special brand of assistance following the pepper spray incident during his and Jay Z’s Best of Both Worlds tour in 2004.

By the end of November 2004, two things were abundantly clear: Cassidy and R. Kelly had a monster hit on their hands with “Hotel” and the Best of Both Worlds experiment was had imploded. During an October 29th performance at Madison Square Garden during the pair’s Best of Both Worlds tour, R. Kelly prematurely left the show after believing someone in the crowd flashed a gun. After attempting to return to the stage following the promoter informing Kelly that extra police officers had been dispersed into the crowd, Kelly claimed that an associate of Jay Z’s pepper sprayed the singer.

According to Cassidy, he was in the building preparing to perform “Hotel” with R. Kelly for the first time since its release a year prior. Following the pepper spray incident, Cassidy says he decided to step in and help a collaborator in apparent  need:

Then they come back in there saying him and Jay Z went through something and R. Kelly got pepper sprayed or maced or something. The a couple little while later, I see R. Kelly coming through, he running through, they trying to guard him. But, I ain’t really know what happened. I ain’t know it was Jay Z and them. All I know is he got maced and I was supposed to go on stage with him and it was f*cking up my night. So when his managers came back through, it was me and a couple of goons I was with. Them n*ggas was looking like they were at a disadvantage so, nah’mean, we passed them off a couple burners so they could feel better about themselves.

Cassidy does say he only gave the singer and his team two of the possible “four burners” him and his entourage had in possession. R. Kelly was rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital, where Cassidy says he and his crew waited to retrieve their loaned out guns from the singer.

In a radio interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 the day after the incident, Jay Z shot down R.Kelly’s gun accusations:

That’s Madison Square Garden. You cannot get a gun in Madison Square Garden. Does he know where he’s at?

Two years later, Jay Z’s longtime best friend and business associate Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith pled guilty to disorderly conduct in connection to the incident.

  • Tre C

    i don’t get why people reveal stories like these a decade later. Some shit is just better when it’s kept out the public

    • Bumpy Johnson

      who cares lol..no one was bodied! lol

  • brotha_man

    why, cass? why give out this information? if u handled it then let the situation play out….are there no grown men anymore?

    • Bumpy Johnson

      wachu mean?

      • brotha_man

        If he helped r Kelly by handing him a pistol, why speak on it. U handled it at the time it’s over move on. Real g’s move in silence. Hear. See. Be silent

      • TEE TWIN CITY

      • Bumpy Johnson

        do you do gangsta sh!t ?do you know gangsters or folk that do gangsta sh!t all the time? ..if not then u should keep your silence coz its not your field to talk in….i know plenty of people who’ve been shot, in the hood all day putting bois blocks on curfews and they say what they want to say, whether in an interview ,on the street, on line or in a rap song as long as no one is getting charged, who cares?

      • brotha_man

        You don’t know my story and I don’t know yours. You don’t know what I’ve seen or done. He can say whatever he wants, but what’s the point. Because people around the way already know if u about that action, they know ur rep, they know your rap sheet.

  • MrNoName2K

    Ida buried that story. Some things are just better off left unsaid. But on second thought..Jay do got a point though, how in the hell did he get the heat into MSG???.. I guess where theres a will, theres a way

  • Cloud Air

    jay is a snake

    -admits to dumbing down lyrics for mass appeal
    -shot his own brother
    -violently mushed woman in face (you remember the gif)
    -tried to intimidate r kelly and act like it didn’t happen
    -tried to have cam’ron robbed and shot and act like it didn’t happen
    -robs people of their publishing like o and sparks or whoever

    these r just off the top of my head

  • Brick Soulja

    This clown wanna be gangster needs to sit down and be quiet.

    • Terry Micah

  • Peter Morris

    Someone help me with my history. What was the beef about? Why was there guns flashing and pepper spray in the first place if they did a whole album and was on tour together?

    • Tre C

      they fell out after the album was produced. I can’t remember if it actually started before the tour. They weren’t even performing together toward the end of that shit

    • ChiMo

  • Gonja

    Cassidy definitely about to take a “L” for this corny shit. Some shit you just NOT supposed to talk about, being a (so-called) street nigga.
