Who doesn’t love that man we call, ‘R Kelly’? From the emotive intimacy of Bump ‘N’ Grind to the operatic grandeur of Trapped In The Closet and the sincere self portrait painted in Real Talk, no man has done more to push musical boundaries, throwing the doors of what we used to call ‘hip-hop’ open to startling new possibilities, and question the very nature of reality itself. His insight into contemporary culture knows as few bounds as his song-craft, vocal range and subtle sartorial elegance (ie, none). What other man can video himself openly micturating all over a pubescent girl and yet still be held in such high esteem by entertainment luminaries as lauded as Jools Holland? His stratospheric fame and unprecedented gift to the arts was, is and forever shall be utterly unparalleled in the past, present or future, including all alternative dimensions and hypothetical possibilities.
To celebrate the legacy of said genius, Swede Mason has created the following video. We hope you enjoy as much as we do.
