I don't know where people are getting near 6'2'' from. He'd be lucky to reach 6'.

A solid and true 6'1 guy. I believe in his prime would measure 186 cm during the day. Reckon he would measure about 185 cm now.

R. Kelly ws just on Jimmy Fallon's show (August 29), and they were exactly the same height. Jimmy did have a footwear advantage in heeled dress shoes while R. Kelly was in flattish trainers, but it still looked as if this would put Kelly somewhere in between 6'1" and 6'0" instead of a solid six feet.

Hey, I saw the passport of R.Kelly in TV when the underage-case was actual, and there I saw: 195cm. I think he is 195cm.

Im 6,1 and I Know R.Kelly (Pied Piper) is taller than me
J. said on 16/Jun/05
Trust 'em, Jay-Z is a solid 6'1". I also once believed him to be 6'4"-ish as well. But that's due to a trick many celebs use and that's called : shooting from the bottom up. 5'11"-ers Fabolous and Chingy also use this trick. Hence why they were listed or percieved to be more than 6 feet!!

Both R. and Jay are 6'1" although I do believe R. would be very slighty taller than Jay. There was some publicity photos of the two back when they did that Best of Both Worlds album (around 2002), R. was maybe a quarter or two taller than Jay. In real life, R. Kelly is known to be a talented basketball player, hence the height.

I'd read articles and seen pictures which seem to suggest that he was about 6'3, and I thought he always seemed a big guy, but he looks the same as 6'1 Jay-Z here:

Though I'm not sure about Jay's height either, I'd heard he was 6'4, and that seemed right.
