    It's not just that he understands the politics of the business. It's really that he doesn't understand that the industry is in a different state than how it was back in the 90's. At least, that's how he was during the release of WMB and previous albums. I hope he has changed now but I digress.

    Yes, he moves onto the next project simply because he has that fighter and hustler type of mentality, always thinking about the next move ($$$) and on top of that he's constantly creating.

    And regarding the MV project, it's not logical that Jive would invest in such a project. Jive gave Kellz so much power and creative freedom that MV (IMO) was just overboard. You know that Kellz wanted to release different versions of the album in different continents, right? That's way too much money being put on the line for a project that could either be successful or a major failure. And if it failed, Kellz would be the one that would have to recoup ALL the money to the label. So thankfully, Jive didn't allow him to do it. At least, they gave Trapped the green light.

    he is a music artist who is a creative genius and he ain't trying to be lumped into one thing. i mean Jive could have allowed it to happen because its not like something you have seen before when you think about it.

    i mean he is tired of being told he is only R&B and he has spoken on it. he knows that the powers that be aren't going to invest in him like they did back in the day and he also knows that hitting that road is the real money and to keep it moving,

    i liked trapped however I would take MV getting the full green light with the quickness

    The only thing Jive/RCA green lighted was to have TITC on that cd in the first place, apart from that they didn't green light anything! They only distribute the dvd, R. Kelly had to find a budget himself!
    I always felt he would've done the same with the MV project! Find some budget, release maybe 1 or 2 cd's and then see how and if it works out like a virus!
    We heard a lot from the Jamaican and African albums, but he has a lot more, and i really hope the MV project does find it's way to the world some day!

    Psychopaths have a Hidden Content and grossly inflated view of their own Hidden Content and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement, and see themselves as the center of the universe, justified in living according to their own rules.

    Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the effects their actions have on others, no matter how devastating these might be. They may appear completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, are not sorry for the ensuing pain, and that there is no reason now to be concerned.

    Many of the characteristics displayed by psychopaths are closely associated with a profound lack of empathy and inability to construct a mental and emotional "facsimile" of another person.

    Psychopaths seem to suffer a kind of emotional poverty that limits the range and depth of their feelings. At times they appear to be cold and unemotional while nevertheless being prone to dramatic, shallow, and short-lived displays of feeling.
    Obligations and commitments mean nothing to psychopaths.

    But here is the crux: Psychopaths don't feel they have psychological or emotional problems, and they see no reason to change their behavior to conform with societal standards they do not agree with.
