It hasn’t stopped him from jumping on features, recently assisting on vocals with Chris Brown and Jhené Aiko for Breezy’s “Juicy Booty” record in 2017, and booking up shows nationwide. Kelly’s still cooking up in the studio as well, which he posted proof of to his Instagram on Thursday (February 1).
But when fans spotted New York hip-hop queen bee Lil’ Kim right beside him thanks to the same photo she also posted to her Instagram and Twitter, the internet wasn't too pleased about it.

I'm looking at these pictures of Lil Kim and R. Kelly on ThatGrapeJuice...— Mark'Nique Worldwide (@ithinkmark) February 2, 2018
Am I the only one that questions why anyone would work with him at this point?
