I Am Not A Rapper x DJ Nastee Naj Presents: #ClassicFriday Vol. 8 – #ClassicRKelly
I mean come on, did you think we wouldn’t do R. Kelly? This dude literally put the R in R &B (Note: might not be true, got it from wikipedia). R. Kelly‘s career has been plagued by scandal from his marriage to a then underage Aaliyah, his child pornography case all the way down to the demise of the heralded and critically acclaimed “Best Of Both Worlds” project with Jay-Z. All in all, R. Kelly seems to continuously rise from the ashes.
R. Kelly has many sons in the r&b game (*sneeze* Trey Songz *sneeze*) and he has launched the career of many of your favorite artists. In the 90s, you may not have been able to tell the difference between him & Aaron Hall, but as time went on R. Kelly set himself far apart from the pack and has continued to do so. R. Kelly even made stepping cool for people under 40… kind of. I could say alot of nice things about R. Kelly… but thats what we have Google for.
So for those who are unfamiliar, get familiar. For those who are familiar, you’re too busy right now to be reading this.
