R. Kelly is one of the most talented artists of the 90’s and 2000’s. He doesn’t just reinvent himself, he truly gets better with time, I think that’s evident in his projects that many didn’t hear about, such as “Clipped Wings” from his Write Me Back album (you can check that out on page 3 ).

What we’ve found throughout the years is that many great artists experience some extremely traumatic things in their lives and R. Kelly is no exception. Although he’s found a way to find a way to carve out his greatness in the midst of trauma, he’s still had some serious struggles- one of them being witnessing his first puppy love girlfriend, LuLu, die in front of him in a river when he was 8 years old.

While one of his other struggles was what he had to endure sexually at the hands of an adult woman when he was also only 8 years old.
