Chance the Rapper Says Working With R. Kelly Was a "Mistake"

  • Chance The Rapper worked with R Kelly in 2014

This article discusses sexual abuse.

While the series' producer, Dream Hampton, had expressed disappointment about the number of music industry professionals who turned down interviews, an out-of-context quote from one of R. Kelly's collaborators who did appear in the show quickly became a hot topic as fans turned some of their ire to Kelly's fellow Chicagoan Chance The Rapper.

John was applauded for speaking out against R Kelly in the Lifetime docu-series, which recounts the multiple sexual abuse claims the musician has faced over the past 20 years.

Sources close to R. Kelly reportedly revealed that he and his team are in the middle of launching the site.

Married 15-year-old Aaliyah in 1994 using a false birth certificate that claimed she was 18. The courts ruled in Kelly's favour.


Was accused of running a "sex cult" at his home in Chicago. Using McGee's past arrests and a phone conversation reportedly between her daughter and ex-boyfriend, the Facebook page attempts to prove that McGee is only trying to cash out from her experiences with the R&B singer. 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. Many of R. Kelly's alleged sexual abuse victims went on camera to tell their stories. "I believe these women and don't give a fuck about protecting a serial child rapist". Chance recorded "Somewhere in Paradise" with Kelly in 2015.

His honesty may be important in continuing this important talk, but the words have understandably hurt millions of women of the black community, who face oppression daily in America. "That's a scene you see...slavery for a lot of people, they envision men in chains, but black women are exponentially a higher oppressed and violated group of people just in comparison to the whole world".

Rolling Stone originally reported that Chance said, "I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black women".

"It's been nearly two years now, and we still haven't seen our daughter", said Savage's father, according to a Complex report on the last episode of "Surviving R. Kelly".

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.
