Chance the Rapper is speaking up and he regrets making music with R. Kelly. He admitted during the final episode of Lifetime’s ‘Surviving R. Kelly.’ Both R. Kelly and Chance the Rapper are icons and natives of Chicago. They have crossed path on several occasions. Such as during Chance the Rapper’s Lollapalooza set in 2014, held in the Windy City. Chance brought out R. Kelly as a surprise guest.
Via Rolling Stone, “The following year, Chance the Rapper made a cameo in Kelly’s “Backyard Part” video and collaborated with the singer on “Somewhere in Paradise.” However, in an interview that features in Surviving R. Kelly, Chance said that in hindsight he regretted working with Kelly.”
Chance says, “Making a song with R. Kelly was a mistake. I didn’t value the accusers’ stories because they were black women. I made a mistake.” It is not clear if Chance’s statement was recorded for the series or was it unreleased footage from an unrelated interview.
Also, Chances is claiming his quote was taken out of context. Check out what he had to say via Twitter:
