Justice: Goodnews for R. Kelly

R. Kelly has received good news in the court of law.


Robert Kelly, better known by his stage name R Kelly, was born and reared in the Chicago suburbs, where he currently resides. He was born and raised at that location, and he continues to reside there. In Chicago, R Kelly was born and raised in a predominantly black neighborhood that was famed for its high levels of crime and gang activity. In fact, they are considered to be one of the most dangerous locations in the entire country.. Music provided R Kelly with the means to break out from his confinement, and he is grateful. Before he created Public Annoucement with his backup singers Earl Robinson, Andre Boykins, and Rick Webster in 1989, his favorite location to sunbathe was on the street. The album Born into the 90's, which was published in January 1992, was the result of a collaboration between Public Announcement and his band.

R Kelly's mother passed away in 1993, and one of his songs, "Trade in My Life," from his album 12 Play, has been devoted to her memory ever since.

During a search for a young Aaliyah Haughton, who came from a musically minded household, R Kelly came across her and made her into an overnight adolescent star. The path of his relationship with her led to an unintentional marriage to her, which was later declared null and void due to the fact that she was under the legal age for marriage.

He was suspected of having sexual relations with another minor in the early 2000s when a video of him with another minor was posted on the internet; nevertheless, he was proven not guilty and returned to his previous home after being granted his freedom. In the case of Dream Hampton, a feminist documentary filmmaker, she didn't let it get to her; she was the one who produced the documentary Surviving R Kelly, which led to R Kelly being arrested and charged with many crimes.


Five victims were involved in Kelly's sex trafficking enterprise, and he was found guilty on eight counts of sex trafficking and one count of racketeering, sexual exploitation, and bribery, according to the jury. In the aftermath of her conviction, Kelly was sentenced to 15 years in jail. If he is found guilty on May 4, 2022, he could be sentenced to a maximum of life in prison if he is found guilty in court.

According to the Rolling Stone magazine, since a jury found R Kelly guilty of federal sex charges on September 27, his album sales have increased by 517 percent, indicating a resurgence in his career.

On average, his tracks garnered over 5.4 million on-demand audio streams per week between 2017 and 2018, with that figure climbing to nearly 6.4 million in 2018.

It is still possible to listen to R Kelly's music on the majority of streaming sites, including Apple Music and Spotify. The music from his album has been removed from the YouTube channel.
