During the 19-minute song, Kelly shockingly claims that he, himself was the victim of sexual abuse at the age of 14. “Now, I admit a family member touched me (touched me, touched me, touched me) / From a child to the age 14, yeah/ While I laid asleep, took my virginity (sleep, gini’),” he sings.
Kelly also fired back at Chicago-based music journalist, Jim DeRogatis, who has reported on Kelly’s alleged misconduct over the last two decades. He sings: “To Jim DeRogatis, whatever your name is (whatever your name is) / You been tryna destroy me for 25 whole years (25 whole years, yeah) / Writin’ the same stories over and over against (stories, stories, yeah ) / Off my name, you done went and made yourself a career (a whole career) / But guess what? I pray for you and family, and all my other enemies (prayed for you, enemies) / I’m not gonna let y’all steal my joy, I’m just gon’ keep on doing me (my joy, doing me)”.
Kelly even addressed Spotify removing him from its playlists following the sex cult accusations: “Spotify, took me off they playlist / I admit that I, been underrated / I’m not convicted, not arrested, but dragged my name in the dirt.”
He later raps that the “only reason” he’s out on tour is “cause I gotta pay my rent.” He continues: “I never thought it would come to this, to be the most disrespected artist.”
Kelly’s been at the center of sexual misconduct allegations for years, with the most recent accusations being that he led a sex cult (February 2017). Several young women came forward, who claim the R&B singer held them against their will, forced them to have intercourse with other women, and controlled how they dressed, what they ate, and when they went to the bathroom.
