R. Kelly’s Brother Releases Diss Track Accusing Him Of Sleeping With Men
R. Kelly is in the news again after his brother Carey Kelly released I Confess, his own version of Kelly’s 19-minute rant I Admit. Carey accused his brother of knowing infecting numerous women with STDs and allegedly dating men.
Kelly briefly mentioned his estranged relationship with his brother on I Admit, singing “I admit I miss my brothers (brothers) But I admit they weren’t acting like brothers (brothers).”
Despite Kelly’s woeful cry on the melodic stream of consciousness, Carey claims Kelly is afraid of him and called the police on him.
The lyrics continue to touch on allegations against Kelly, introducing new rumors accusing Kelly of sleeping with men.
“You gave them females some crazy disease/ want you to know Momma not pleased/Tell me how them n***as that tight and you ain’t gotta wife/something smell fishy, what’s going on/what kinda man want to spend the night in a man home?”
Contention between Kelly and Carey can be traced back to 2002 when Kelly’s lawyer suggested it was Carey on the infamous 2002 sex tape that led to Kelly being indicted on 21 counts of child pornography. Kelly was accused of exposing a 19-year-old woman to an STD in May of this year.
The movement to #MuteRKelly has forced companies to severe ties with Kelly. Color of Change, a nonprofit civil rights advocacy, issued a letter to RCA requesting drop the controversial artist, Pitchfork reports. Despite their attempts and 13 months of conversations with high level executives, it doesn’t seem like the label is going to budge.
“We sent more letters, we’ve continued to push for a response from them behind the scenes, and they’ve chosen both privately and publicly to remain silent,” Brandi Collins, a senior campaign director at Color of Change, told Pitchfork.
While Kelly’s fan base is still going strong, not even he can deny the effects of the #MuteRKelly.
