Chance the Rapper Apologizes for Working With R. Kelly

Chance the Rapper Apologizes for Working With R. Kelly

Chance The Rapper appeared on the finale of Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly documentary series.

R. Kelly has never acted alone; he's had a host of friends and employees that not only have allegedly stood by while he victimized women and girls but in some cases have also aided him, which makes them responsible too.

Well, I have spoken to more than a dozen fearless women who have put their names and faces to the accusations they have made in BuzzFeed in July 2017, the big story that has revitalized interest in this sad tale. "I apologize to all of his survivors for working with him and for taking this long to speak out", he wrote. The episode included an interview with Chance the Rapper, where he said that he regretted ever collaborating with R. Kelly, as Rolling Stone points out. "And I felt really torn because, you know, my faith and my morals told me I needed to come forward because what he did was wrong".

"We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression", he told Lemieux.

R. Kelly has reportedly claimed that he doesn't know numerous women interviewed for a shocking documentary about his past, which finished airing on Lifetime over the weekend.

The discussion surrounding this issue has sparked heated debates but most importantly has raised awareness of the mistreatment of Black women. "And that's when it became real to me, 'Andrea, you're being abused.'" With the revelation being as clear as ever, Andrea Kelly left with the kids.

Fallout since the series began airing has been widespread across the R&B and hip-hop world and throughout the music business.

The production company behind the series denied Kelly's claims to PEOPLE, saying there is "no truth to that comment at all".

Namely, it examines the wider public's reluctance to believe or care when young black women are abused or hurt, and the cognitive dissonance we as listeners use when dancing to the likes of 'Ignition (Remix)'.

The documentary's film-maker Dream Hampton claims she hopes "Surviving R. Kelly" serves as a starter tool to "shift culture" and "talk about rape culture and organise against patriarchy, which harms us all".

R. Kelly and his former landlord have a court date this morning (Monday, January 7).

She took the stand to testify during Kelly's trial, but speaking out in court wasn't an easy thing to do, she explained during the fourth installment of Lifetime's six-part docu-series.
