Ruff Ryders rap star DMX was way ahead of the creators behind the creators of the Surviving R. Kelly exposé, and about 10 years before the Lifetime docu-series even aired.
In light of some of the other celebrities speaking out against the shamed R&B singer, a 2009 interview from X has surfaced where he blasts R. Kelly and all of his pedophilic behavior. The one in particular that he recalled in the interview with DJ Whoo Kid happened to occur during a studio session, X remembered—the same session he was supposed to be recording a track with Kelly in. Regrettably, he showed up only for the Pied Piper to not just stay holed up in a separate room, but with a minor at that.
“You f**king b**ch a** n**ga!” he yelled. “When I see you I’m gonna spit in your f**king face, f**got! F**k you! F**k that n**ga! F**k that n**ga with a elephant d**k you f**king b**ch!” He went on to explain his hostility behind his choice words for him. According to X, Kelly invited him to the studio and even said he was “pressed to do a song for a minute.” The Yonkers emcee said he showed up to the studio out of respect for Kelly, but that respect wasn’t returned once Kelly decided not to even show up. X decided to cue up the beat anyway to begin working.
“He didn't have enough respect to come in the same room I'm in," X recollected. Apparently, R. Kelly was in a room downstairs from the studio. He explained that he came up with a bogus reason as to why he couldn’t do the song, and felt disrespected that he wouldn’t even come speak with him face-to-face. “You didn't have enough respect to talk to a n**ga face to face, he had to talk through a crack in the door, because he in there with a minor?!" he said.
Yikes, talk about #MuteRKelly.
