Congrats to WGCI’s The Morning Riot on a successful five years in the game. Half a decade is no small feat, especially in this fickle industry; so salute to Tony, Leon, Sherm, Nina and Drea. Last night at their anniversary party at Transit, the gang brought out Que, Kam, Rico Love and the legend R. Kelly himself. Check out Kells’ rocking the crowd in the clip above. Here’s to another five.
Kells joins DJ Cassidy on the DJ’s latest single and offering from his forthcoming LP, “Make The World Go Round”. This old school-esque record is sure to get the steppers stepping.
Stream below via Fader. Look for Cassidy’s Paradise Royale album to impact this summer.
Finally, R. Kelly’s Black Panties album gets the chopped and screwed treatment courtesy of OG Ron C and the Chopstars. 22 tracks (some not from the album) get slowed and throwed courtesy of the Texas outfit. Purple Panties? Gotta love it.
Check it out below.
Gaga brings back Kells for the official remix of “Do What U Want”, which also features Ricky Rozay. Check out the remix below thanks to RapRadar.
The Pied Piper was the most recent guest on Elliott Wilson’s #CRWN live audience interview series, which happens every few months in NYC. In part two of their series, they discuss his potential work with 2Pac before his death, and the Best of Both Worlds debacle.
The Pied Piper was the most recent guest on Elliott Wilson’s #CRWN live audience interview series, which happens every few months in NYC. Elliott scored a rather candid interview with Kells, where they discuss everything from his Black Panties album, to Lady Gaga, to throat surgery and his old group Public Announcement.
Most importantly, however, is Kells reminiscing about writing some of his best songs in the parking lot of Rock-N-Roll McDonald’s. Fun fact, this is also where he discovered Boo from Boo & Gotti. True story.
It goes without saying that R. Kelly’s Black Panties album has been quite polarizing. On one hand, you have a lot of fans professing their love for the project, saying R. Kelly is back and BP is his best album in years. On the other hand, Kells’ detractors are more vocal than ever, claiming the project is oversexed and R. Kelly’s character is being exploited in the worst way, and his antics should not be celebrated.
Well, whatever side of the fence you’re on, it helped Rob sell a ton of records, as his twelfth studio album is set to move around 100,000 copies in its first week — and those are just the first day projections.
R. Kelly (RCA) 90-100k
Not far behind Kells is Childish Gambino, whose Because The Internet is set to move around 80-90k. Wow all around.
Kells is the cookie monster — at least this is true in his new video for “Cookie.” If you love sexual innuendo and R. Kelly, you’re going to love this one. Trust us.
Kells’ new album, Black Panties, is available online and in stores today.
Last night, R. Kelly took over the Arsenio Hall show in support of his new album, Black Panties, which drops next Tuesday (12/10). During Kells lengthy performance, he paid tribute to fallen hero and one of the most important figures of our lifetime, Nelson Mandela, who passed away yesterday.
Hit the jump for more videos of his heartfelt performance.
After recruiting Rockie Fresh and Katie Got Bandz for the Chicago remix of “My Story”, Kells takes it to the left coast and grabs Too $hort and Nipsey Hussle for the official West Coast remix. Speaking of Nip Hussle, he’ll be live at Reggie’s next month for his first ever show in the Windy city — powered by FSD, of course. More details here. Shameless plug aside, check out the official West Coast remix for “My Story” below.
Kells’ Black Panties LP hits stores and digital retailers December 10th.
