If you've not been paying too much attention to the R. Kelly saga recently, it's worth noting that last week saw the premiere of Surviving R. Kelly, a documentary dedicated to outlining and discussing the many accusations against the artist. Kelly isolated them, punished them, required them to ask permission to eat and use the bathroom, told them not to make eye contact or speak with anyone else, and beat them, all while sexually debasing them and videotaping the process.

"I think a lot of times people try to research a person by their lyrics".

Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, has faced criticism for collaborating with Kelly on the 2015 song "Somewhere in Paradise" and performing with him at the Lollapalooza festival in 2014. "I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women", he explains in the interview.

John Legend was one of few male musicians to feature in the documentary. Kelly persuasively argues-proves, really- that, societally speaking, we have made an unforgivable pact with Kelly, a musical genius who was able to hide his evil behavior in plain sight for decades because he committed his crimes against black girls. I believe these women. The program follows the sexual assault allegations against Kelly, including interviews with Kelly's ex-wife and his accusers.

In an interview for Surviving R. Kelly, Chance admits that working with Kelly was a "mistake" in clip taken from a May 2018 interview with Cassius' Jamilah Lemieux.

The documentary has given a boost to the #MuteRKelly hashtag, which is part of an ongoing social media campaign for listeners to boycott Kelly's music.

Despite this, according to The Blast, Spotify streams of Kelly's music have reportedly increased by 16 percent since the doco debuted.

R. Kelly has continuously denied the allegations and was acquitted in 2002 of child pornography charges, yet the evidence to the contrary is overwhelming.

In case you've missed the drama surrounding R Kelly following the release of a six-hour length Lifetime documentary regarding his sexual predation, the explosive TV episodes have one again brought the unsafe rapper to light. In an emergency, call 000.
