9. Jim Jones vs. Ne-Yo
Showdown: On paper it read like a catastrophic mismatch. In one corner was bantam romantic crooner Ne-Yo and in the other Dip Set goon personified Jim Jones. The unlikely 2008 fight sparked off at New York’s Louis Vuitton store after a member of Jones’ entourage made a derogatory comment about Jay-Z to Mr. Carter’s right-hand man Ty Ty Smith. Cue brawl. When the dust settled, Ne-Yo—who made a valiant attempt to break-up the fracas—found someone’s Prada shoe on his neck. Sheesh.
