I am convinced R.Kelly is one of the all time most successful and prolific black artist of the last 25 years, who has more hit songs than any other black artist ever. Making the king of R&B “arguably the most important R&B figure of the 1990s and 2000s.”

However, R. Kelly is feeling some type of way about the lack of support for his latest album from his loyal fans. Kels recently took to YouTube to make a plea, to Black people to support his latest album, The Buffet, which has sold approximately 28K copies since it was released last Friday.

“We gotta start supporting each other.”

“I bust my ass going around doing shows to survive, but I do this for the love,” Kelly said. “But come on, at some point we gotta start supporting each other. Everybody supports every other category of music, we gotta start supporting each other.”

The singer then went on to complain about his lack of support, not only from his fans, but also his record label. “I want my people to get behind me,” he concluded.

Does R. Kelly have a point about the lack of support for our legends who gave so much to black music and the black culture?
