    the arguments i get into with is folks trying t clown or downplay him

    they like to throw up thoia thong and feeling on yo booty and say that is him and then i counter think what you like about those two songs, however both those albums feature " i wish" and touched a dream" respectively and then crickets.

    i don't like everything he does and i am vocal about it,.however i like a whole lot especially when he is singing/sanging and doing his thing.

    what makes me champion his music is not only his talent, but also his versatility and he just hits home.

    i tell folks all the time r.kelly is like energizer bunny he just keeps on ticking.

    some of the haters bring up dave chappelle jokes or jay z,etc.. and i'm like you see r.Kelly performing in africa or working with whitney houston,jenifer hudson and snoop dogg?/ mouths get shut, working with african artists and working on his next project crickets.

    i tell folks that Stevie Wonder is the only living artist kellz has any real comp to reach to.

    i tell folks that stevie and michael passed R the baton and he is running with it.

    when kellz got the songwriter award from stevie wonder 5 years back, that was something else in itself, especially when you know the depth and importance of stevie wonder's work.

    michael jackson was always feeling kellz.

    creative wise r.kelly is still turning things out, musically wise the best is still yet to come, he represents both of there worlds.

    versatility, longevity, depth, important albums, songs in various decades,etc..

    he is a showman, dominates his era that talks how they were in there respective eras.

    As i've said before Rob is so underrated its gross.

    Hes not underrated in some circles....but to the mass's because if clowns like chapelle. BET has helped in bringing down kellz with giving trey so much air time, even tho trey is a 106 and park act.

    Why is this ? well Kelly has become more and more of a recluse as he doesn't need (financially) to sell records anymore, his masters and his royalties are paying the bills. I mean IGNITION REMIX will sell till the sun stops shining because its just that party/club/wedding/graduation/birthday/car ride/ having lunch/bah mitzfa/christening/ mega jam that will always get people in a groove.

    But now I hope he feels confident in getting back in the limelight. I'll be blunt about it, would you want to be on the same late night shows and magazines that said you were some sicko that pees on people? It takes credit for him to get out of his hermit shell and get back out there.

    Looks like he is finally getting the respect he deserves and its just getting better with younger artists citing him as their inspiration. Now if trey was to wise up and start praising kellz and make his next album called "1 play" (being only 1/12th as good lol) maybe Rob would break him off a hit, who knows?

    The future just keeps getting better.....2011 will be better than 2010, and 2010 was better than 2009, 2009 was better than 08 so lets hope this trend keeps moving and R. KELLY and UNDERRATED will never be in the same breath again

    ^co-sign, especially the ignition remix part, I can't even count how many times I've heard celebrities and ordinary people who have quoted it as their favourite song, I am even crazier about the accoustic and live versions (with the roots). Rob will eventually get the recognition he deserves, a lot of people respect him already, but there are some clowns who are still caught in the past/ and those idiots who insists that Rob only sings about sex or freaky things. As you say things will get better with time.

    he never left and he never stopped being him.

    there outta be a film on his career and one day there will be.

    this cat could have retired after 99 and left a mark on R&B/Pop music,instead he has kept on doing his thing.

    he has stayed Bad. you don't last as long as he has by being a scrub.

    too versatile and has too many ways to beat you without even being on his A Game.

    he makes it look all so easy and it is anything but, because that industry spits and chews you out as fast as you blow up.

    as long as he showcases his talents as a songwriter, producer, all around artist and his stage game IMO gets better with each passing tour.

    not saying he wasn't bringing it in the 90's, but his stage game now is scary and if he ever brings a whole assemble band, orechestra and tours all the way with strings,etc.. then that will be the hottest ticket in the land bar none.

    we ain't heard or seen a thing yet and that is scary when you think about where this Man stands in Music as i type this.

    there is that whole other side of his creativity that is scary!

    let me reiterate:

    Robert Sylvester Kelly is one of the most HATED ON and UNDERRATED musicians of ALL-TIME. that is a FACT.

    unappreciated, especially by young folks.

    i'm 23 now, i do my fucking best to rep Kells, but i get a lot of negativity for it. i guess that's just life, though. i do my best.

    that is true, and alot of it is because of the issues surrounding him personally.

    Musically he represents a different era of Music as well, I mean he came from a dfferent era, and there is gonna be a ageism thing there as well and folks not going back.
