    Anyone who listens to and admires this criminal should double up in the same jail cell in which this guy belongs, if not for his money and Anyone who listens to and admires this criminal should double up in the same jail cell in which this guy belongs, if not for his money and station in life. A true example of the idiom, "Life just isn't fair," this guy should make fans with female children truly lock up their daughters. Full Review »

    This is plain horrible. who wants to know if he's a flirt? who cares that he's looking for good sex? could someone please chop him This is plain horrible. who wants to know if he's a flirt? who cares that he's looking for good sex? could someone please chop him from their recording label, so that it would be one less untalented artist for radio stations and music channels to play.

    R.Kelly is undeniably the king of R&B. Every album he releases changes the genre and moves it up a notch to amazing levels!! A genius is R.Kelly is undeniably the king of R&B. Every album he releases changes the genre and moves it up a notch to amazing levels!! A genius is defined by making his own styles, for example, songs like "real talk", "best friend" and "same girl" are just classical. These songs makes you feel like you're watching a highly addictive drama. In one track his breaking up with his 'naive' girlfriend, the next (with Usher) he finds out they've been seeing the same girl. The "best friend" cut (featuring Keyshia Cole & Polow da don) he is in prison and his wife and friend come to visit, where he realizes his friend is wearing the shirt his wife had bought him. The way it's sung is just amazing, makes you actually see the situation. Kellz is absolutely the king of R&B without a doubt. Stand out tracks (with those 3); Leave your name, Sweet Tooth, The Zoo and Sex Planet. Full Review »
