Hip-Hop Sounds Off on ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ Docuseries
The new Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, which debuted on Thursday (Jan. 3), has been the talk of the internet over the last couple of days, as more and more claims of abuse and relationships with underage girls are put forth against the embattled singer, R. Kelly.
The six-part series full of scandalous allegations premiered Thursday night (Jan. 3), with two episodes being released each night. The series comes to an end tonight (Jan. 5) with episodes 5 and 6. Episodes 1 and 2 include R. Kelly's upbringing, rise to fame, victims' claims and marriage to underage Aaliyah, who was 15 at the time. Episodes 3 and 4 have more claims from alleged victims and covers his infamous child pornography case.
Hip-hop artists have been sounding off on social media about the revealing show, most with disgust.
"How did we not see you was and are a wild sick child molester??" Cappadonna captioned a photo of Kelz on Twitter on Saturday (Jan. 5). "TF you got boxers on in a shoot with a 15 year old child bro???!! You can’t heal what happened to you but hurting others. Hell gonna rip you hard man🔥🔥🔥🔥."
Former Three 6 Mafia rapper Gangsta Boo didn't hold back on Twitter either. "R Kelly , I gotta trade you in for good bro," she wrote. "27 not a kid. He knew exactly what he was doing. Issues or not,molested or not. You know right from wrong and sleeping with underage girls or boys as a adult Male or Female is never ok."
People have apparently been giving Vince Staples props for calling out Kelly during an interview at Coachella last year. "Y’all weird as hell for crediting me for this K. Relly shit," he wrote on Twitter. "Leave me alone with your out of nowhere care but it’s still fuck cuh tho onna dead locs."
