R. Kelly really wants black people to buy his album, posts video plea
R. Kelly wants black people to buy his album, and he’s taken to YouTube to shame us into it.
“We gotta start supporting each other,” Kelly said in a video pleading with black buyers to purchase his latest album, The Buffet.
“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.”
He went on to bemoan the fact that his music fans and his record label had both been severely lacking in their level of support, saying, “I want my people to get behind me.”
