Chance The Rapper Apologizes For Working With R. Kelly

Chance The Rapper worked with R Kelly in 2014

Kelly's legal team threatened to start legal proceedings against Lifetime if it aired the show, but the channel proceeded.

Last July, Kelly penned a 19-minute song in response to the numerous allegations against him.

John Legend is the rare exception, stepping up whereas others like Jay Z and Lady Gaga declined to participate.

Many have echoed her outrage on Twitter. I ain't judging. But I'm just saying those parents shouldn't have let that go that far. Whoa, whoa, whoa. This doesn't look good for Gaga, we have to admit.

Clips of "Surviving R. Kelly" on Lifetime TV's Instagram account show young women crying while recalling experiences with R. Kelly, and even R. Kelly's ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, also appears. Eventually, security did remove her from the concert without explanation.

The conversation stems partly from a controversial statement Chance The Rapper made - and which was used in the documentary - in which he said he didn't care about the allegations at the time, because they were coming from black women.




Chance the Rapper is apologizing for working with R. Kelly. "More people are downloading R. Kelly's music now because of the curiosity that this publicity has generated", he says. "I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black". "We need the village to rescue our girls and women".

Chance said on Twitter the quote was taken out of context.

So now here we are in this space where Kelly is being completely exposed for who he is and the majority of his victims are Black women. Can you, people in general, separate the Art from the Artist? While I absolutely deny these allegations, I feel very bad that I would be a source of pain for her.

The documentary is massively upsetting to watch, with woman after woman telling stories with paralleling patterns of his behaviour. While Savage has claimed she was with Kelly of her own free will, her family and friends believe he has brainwashed her. "It's a awful burden to have to endure". I been living for 30 years and I never seen no shit like this. I didn't have anyone to talk to. I like to imagine that the people listening were trying to do what I was trying to do, when I couldn't get "Ignition (Remix)" out of my head: fusing the song to the horror stories I had just heard. "I made a mistake".

"He would really manipulate my mind. What am I missing???", she captioned the video.

Known especially for his hit 'I believe I can fly, ' the 51-year-old singer and producer was charged in 2002 with filming sex acts between him and a 14-year-old girl, but was ultimately acquitted in 2008.
