Oct17On this day in 2001, Jay Z (Shawn Carter) pleaded guilty in a New York court to stabbing producer Lance “Un” Rivera during a brawl at the Kit Kat Klub.

In December of 1999, Carter and Rivera apparently exchanged words before Carter pummelled Rivera with champagne bottles and then stabbed him.

Carter received three years’ probation.

Interesting side note: When Carter was twelve, he shot his older brother over a stolen ring. His brother survived and did not press charges.
