All you people need to go and f--k yourselves. R. Kelley is a bad boy. He never ever got the props he deserves as an entertainer. The man is truly talented, put aside his personell **** ups ok. No one is perfect. Quit hating the man is having medical issues.

You people need to go and f--k yourselves. R. Kelley is one of the greatest entertainers alive. He never ever got his props. Damn what he did in his personal life the man is bad. Quit hating, the man is having medical issues. I hope he overcomes them. Going out to buy the cd now. I suggest you haters do the same.
