R. Kelly had a huge impact on the R & B scene and influenced many singers with his iconic music. One of the singers who came after Kelly was Tyrese Gibson. It may had something to do with him defending R. Kelly during a conversation with Fat Joe.
Needless to say countless people reacted on social media after his comments. He has not been sentenced yet as the coronavirus pandemic appears to have delayed some of his appearances in court. A number of accusations and documentaries about his alleged sexual abuse of minors which has made a lot of people turn their back on the fallen R & B star.
Tyrese speaking about the singer with Fat Joe in defense believes people may have similar “secrets” as R. Kelly. It seemed to downplay the antics of the Chicago native which didn’t sit well with people.
“R. Kelly, with all of his videos, what he was doing musically and sonically, and how he figured out a way to change and evolve and stay relevant over all of those years,” he said, praising his role in music. Those weren’t the problematic comments though.
He went on to add: “I know he has a lot of controversy and heat on him. I get it. Ain’t no need to get in my comments and if you write some goofy shit I’m going to say ‘it’s okay.’ I’m too real to fake it. I just have to say it. What I’ve learned over the years, there is a lot of people in our industry… Everybody is involved in something that they don’t ever want people to know about publicly. I would say, you know what, let god do his job. If I were to find out what everyone is into, we probably wouldn’t be a fan of anybody. There is some people who do what they do, they know how to keep their shit completely in the closet.”
Tyrese ended the topic by quoting the bible and saying, “Thou shalt not judge.”
