Not too many celebrities have spoken out publicly against R. Kelly when it comes to his recent “sex cult” allegations. But one rapper from Chicago had a few words for the R&B singer, and that may have garnered him a few new fans.


Southside Chicago rapper Vic Mensa, who’s signed to Jay-Z’s RocNation, isn’t a fan of Kelly’s and isn’t ashamed to say so.

“Fuck R. Kelly,” Vic told TMZ. “R. Kelly is a scumbag and a very dirty man. He needs to be locked away forever.”


 Jim DeRogatis’ BuzzFeed story went viral over two weeks ago, and the shitstorm that has followed includes people wanting concert venues to boycott Kelly’s current tour, as well as calls for his record label to drop him.

I gave Vic Mensa’s newest album, The Autobiography, two streams this weekend, just on principle alone.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
