R. Kelly Admits to Many Things in New Song, Having a Sex Cult Is Not One of Them

R. Kelly has finally broken his silence. If you thought “Trapped in a Closet”, a 33 chapter tour de force that clocks in at 91 minutes and was turned into a DVD film, was Kelly’s most divisive work, you were wrong.

Kelly takes the stand in a new 19-minute song titled “I Admit.” As you may have guess, Kelly does a whole lot of admitting in the new track.

Admission – Kelly did not sexually assault anyone, but does have many girlfriends

“How they gon’ say I don’t respect these women, when all I’ve done is represent (30 years)/ Take my career and turn it upside down, ’cause you mad I’ve got some girlfriends (girlfriends).

“I admit I f**k with all the ladies, that’s both older and young ladies (ladies, yeah)/ But tell me how they call it pedophile because that s**t is crazy (crazy)/ You may have your opinions, entitled to your opinions (opinions)/ But really am I supposed to go to jail or lose my career because of your opinion/ Yeah, go ahead and stone me, point your finger at me (stone me, yeah, yeah)/ Turn the world against me, but only god can mute me (against me, mute me)

“Said I’m abusing these women, what the f**k that’s some absurd s**t (what?)/ They’re brainwashed, really? (really)/ Kidnapped, really? (really)/ Can’t eat, really? (really)/ Real talk, that s**t sound silly (yeah)/ And if you really, really wanna know (know)/ Her father dropped her off at my show (show)/ And told this boy to put her on stage (yeah)/ I admit that she was over age (age)/ I admit that I was feelin’ her and I admit that she was feelin’ me (she was feelin’ me)/ I admit that that’s the s**t that comes with/ being a celebrity (celebrity)/ I ain’t chasing these ladies, no (no, no)/ These ladies are chasing me, yeah (chasing me)

“Now I’m only saying all this s**t, ’cause how they tryna play me, yeah (yeah, oh)/ I admit that this is no disrespect to the parents (no disrespect)/ But this is my advice to you ’cause I’m also a parent (parent)/ Don’t push your daughter in my face, and tell me that it’s okay (my face, okay)/ ‘Cause your agenda is to get paid, and get mad when it don’t go your way (yeah, go way)

“What’s the definition of a cult?/ Whats the definition of a sex slave?/ Go to the dictionary, look it up/ Let me know I’ll be here waiting/ Now I admit that I got some girls that love me to pull they hair (they hair)/ Now I admit that they love me to talk dirty when I pull they hair (they hair)/ Some like me to spank ’em/ Some like to get branded/ And what some of these girls want, is too much for the radio station/ Look I’m just a man y’all (man y’all)/ Not a monster or beast (no, no)/ But I admit there are times when these girls so fine, they’ll chill with a n***a for a week (oh, for a week).”

There’s a lot to unpack here.

The R. Kelly sex slave ring was one of the biggest stories of 2017. The accusations died out quickly and nothing ever came from it because a new tragedy happens every day in America.

Kelly doesn’t admit to having an actual sex slave ring, but doesn’t cop to a few accusations. He won’t put the blame on himself, instead blaming the parents for leaving their daughters around him. Does this solve anything? Not really. But it’s the first Kelly has spoken about these accusations and he certainly addresses just about everything.

Admission – He can’t read

“I admit I can’t spell for s**t/I admit that all I hear is hits (ohh)/I admit that I couldn’t read the teleprompter when the Grammy’s asked me to present (yeah)”

So he’s Nick Cannon in Drumline.

Admission – He cheated on his girlfriend

“Won’t say no name, I’m not a snitch/But one night at the Ritz, did some s**t I shouldn’t of did (at the Ritz, shouldn’t of did)/Went and fucked a n***a’s bitch/I admit, I admit that I did (I did)/I fucked my girlfriends bestfriend (oh)/Yeah I tapped that in the back of my Benz (my Benz)”

That’s his girlfriend’s fault for bringing her best friend around Kels.

Admission – He was set up on the infamous pee tape

“She said ‘What about the tape?’/I said hush/I said my lawyer said ‘don’t say noth’/But I can tell you I’ve been set up (up)”

R. Kelly is a saint. He would never pee on anyone if he knew it would be on video.

Admission – He’s broke

“I admit it, how ever since the first day (first day)/That without knowing that I signed my publishin’ away (away)/I admit it, I was young and caught up and so blind, yeah (so blind)/Said I had dyslexia, couldn’t read all them contracts, yeah/Now the truth in this message, is I’m a broke ass legend (message, legend)/The only reason I stay on tour, is ’cause I gotta pay my rent (on tour, my)/I never thought it would come to this, to be the most disrespected artist (come)/So I had to write a song about this, ’cause they always take my words and twist it (song)/Believe me its hard to admit all this, but I’m in my feelings about this s**t (oh, oh, yeah, yeah)/But I had to set the fuckin’ record straight, so (yeah, yeah)”

R. Kelly reminds me of Ric Flair. His peak is greater than just about anyone in the game. But he blew all that cash/was taken advantage of by so many people, that he kept going way past the point of expiration. I almost feel bad for R. Kelly. Almost.

And of course he’s broke. Drake just released a 19 album track with a bunch of one minute songs. Kelly released one track that’s 19 minutes. He could have put this whole track as an album and made bank. Instead he put it on Soundcloud for free.

Admission – He was sexually assault by a family member

“Now, I admit a family member touched me (touched me, touched me, touched me)/From a child to the age 14, yeah/While I laid asleep, took my virginity (sleep, gini’)/So scared to say something, so I just put the blame on me/Now here I am, and I’m tryin’ my best to be honest (honest)/Cause the sources out there tryna keep me from bein’ an artist/I admit I’m at rock bottom (oh, oh)

That’s. Ummm. Not good.

Those are the big admissions on track, but there are many more. Kelly sounds like a dude who was in confessional and just so happened to have a recorder with him.

No amount of Hail Marys is going to save this man.
