And Now, A Word From Kanye West On R. Kelly...

And Now, A Word From Kanye West On R. Kelly...

This isn't exactly the Sunday morning sermon we were hoping for.

Published January 14, 2019

Resident of the sunken place Kanye West is the latest to join those speaking on his fellow Chicago brethren and former collaborator R. Kelly. The dethroned emcee took to a live-stream this past Sunday (Jan. 13) to discuss the current allegations against Robert as well as resurfaced accusations against the late Michael Jackson.

In a series of now-deleted snippets from Ye’s latest venture, “Sunday Service,” a weekly event where he performs gospel-inspired versions of his songs with a choir, he definitely ruffled a few feathers.

  1. In the spirit of separating the art from the artist...

    Multiple sources have reported that the GOOD Music founder stated, "everybody, they want the art from the artist, but anytime they do anything erratic, they just gonna pull full documentaries. Then they gon' come with the Michael documentary..."

  2. "We can all enjoy all their music all we want," Ye continued, clearly opposing the #MuteRKelly movement

    "I thought I wasn't going to go there today. If we're gonna tear down artists, let's go ahead and take [Leonardo] da Vinci out the Lourve, while we at it. Let's take down all the art," he finished in the curt snippet.

    Ye referenced both Surviving R. Kelly and the forthcoming documentary about Michael Jackson, Leaving Neverland, which is set to premiere at Sundance's Film Festival and focuses on two men claiming the King of Pop sexually abused them when they were underage.

  3. According to his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, he wasn't "defending anyone..."

    Watch the full clip of his sentiments below.
