Jay-Z Associate Pleads Guilty to Spraying R. Kelly with Mace

tyty.jpgTyran “Ty-Ty” Smith, a Def Jam Vice President and childhood friend of Brooklyn rapper Jay-Z, plead guilty yesterday to a disorderly conduct charge for his role in the 2004 incident where he sprayed R. Kelly and his bodyguards with mace backstage at New York’s Madison Square Garden, a stop on the Best of Both World’s Tour. The charges stem from a 2004 lawsuit filed by Kelly, which alleges Jay-Z conspired to undermine his performance on the tour. Smith received four days of community service and two days of anger management counseling.
