Robert Kelly goes signer turnt rapper on this new single which features Shawnna. Both artists trade real bars and warn the competition to “Back Up” in the new year. From the sound of things, Kells has a new project (or something) slated for January 2015, and Shawnna is plotting a big new year as well.
But yes, Kells is rapping here. Maybe his next release he’ll be in full MC mode? We shall see. Shouts to DJ Averi Minor.

Fefe at the mansion.
R. Kelly and Ricky Rozay connected in Atlanta yesterday to shoot the the official video for “Keep Doing That” a.k.a. “Rich B*tch”, which is said to be the next single from Ross’ upcoming Hood Billionaire LP. From the look of things, Kellz and Ross had some fun shooting this one.
Look for the song and it’s Dre Films-directed video to impact soon. Until then, check out a few shots from the set below the jump.

Two of the most controversial figures in the history of R&B have connected for the provocative “Drown In It,” which I’m surprised hasn’t broken the internets yet. Kells. Chris. The peanut gallery is definitely going to turn up for this one.
Chris’ new album, X, is due out September 16th.
Last night, Chicago’s hometown hero, Chancellor Bennett, triumphantly returned to Grant Park for his second year in a row at Lollapalooza, and last night he closed out the three day fest by headlining the coveted closing slot at Perry’s stage. Chance ran through his growing catalog alongside a full band, singing ensemble, dancers (including Bop King DLow) and a light show to rival another one of Chicago’s greats, Kanye West.
And despite the mud and rain, Chance brought his supporters out in droves, who sang along throughout his set and partied like the weekend was coming to an end (spoiler alert: it was.) But one of the most shocking and surprising moments of Chance’s set was when the rapper brought out the legendary Robert Kelly, who helped him finish out the melody on “Acid Rain” and then went into his own mini-set including some bars from “Bump N Grind,” “The World’s Greatest” and “Ignition (Remix.)” So yeah, it was pretty wild. People were walking past Chance’s stage in disbelief, not knowing if the DJ was just running through some Kells hits, or if the Pied Piper was actually on stage.
All in all, it was a great outing, further cementing his place as one of the most major players in the music biz today. If you missed his set live and missed the livestream, we have some footage for you this morning. Sure, it’s not super high quality, but you get the idea. Well done Chano.
Produced by DJ Terry Hunter.
After debuting it at the 2014 BET Awards last night, J-Hud gives everyone the studio version of her new single “It’s Your World” via Shazam. The record was produced by house legend DJ Terry Hunter and features vocals from Kells, who also penned the song. Doesn’t get much more Chi than this. Listen to “It’s Your World” below.
Kells and Cassidy connected for the first single from Cass’ Paradise Royale album. The video finds Cassidy and Big Rob doing their damn thing on the CTA throughout the loop. Remember when pics surfaced of Kells’ riding the train? Well, he was filming this joint. Doors closing.
