R Kelly’s new song “I Admit” is captivating

Look, I don’t claim to know much about R Kelly but some headlines and the fantastic spoof Chappelle did “Pee on You”.   But I certainly don’t want to support or praise someone who is a poison to society and I know the people who rage against him have a pretty strong argument.  But I heard Kelly’s 19 MINUTE LONG new song “I Admit” and I felt like it was just compelling to me. Raw.

Beginning line after line with “I admit …” the singer confesses to a multitude of acts, including infidelity, sleeping with his girlfriend’s best friend, having sexual relationships with fans and going to strip clubs every week.  Said he’s dyslexic, broke and signed about his music rights.

Here are a few segments. You can read the full lyrics here and hear the song below:

I admit it, however since the first day (first day)
That without knowin’ 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
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
Say I’m abusing these women, what the fuck that’s some absurd shit (what?)
They’re brainwashed, really? (really)
Kidnapped, really? (really)
Can’t eat, really? (really)
Real talk, that shit 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 the 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 just some shit that come with being a celebrity (celebrity)
I ain’t chasing these ladies, no (no, no)
These ladies are chasing me, yeah (chasing me)
