95.1 FM Clubsteppin In Chicago Will Stop Playing R. Kelly’s Music – “To Hear And See The Pain And Suffering That Is Real For So Many, Effective Immediately, We Will No Longer Play The Music Of R. Kelly” [VIDEO]
R. Kelly continues to feel the affects of his previous actions of having sex with teenage girls, videotaping and assaulting them on Lifetime’s recent “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary series. He is currently being investigated for these actions in Atlanta. Police were also called on him yesterday by an anonymous caller at Trump Tower in Chicago for allegedly holding two women against their will. They were also supposedly the same ones in his sex cult in Atlanta a few years ago. The two are Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary who were documented in Surviving R. Kelly too.
Many radio stations are starting to ban R. Kelly’s music again and that is the case for a hometown radio station in Chicago. 95.1 Clubsteppin is the latest. Lamont Watts owns the station and posted a video to 95.1’s Facebook page to condemn what Kelly stands for and what he did to women.
“As a leader of a team where women contribute unselfishly, in a business where the majority of our audience is women, as a son, a brother and a husband of a devoted family, and to hear and see the pain and suffering that is real for so many, effective immediately, we will no longer play the music of R. Kelly,” said Watts.
Hopefully more radio stations continue to follow suit and don’t continue to play Kelly’s music. Kelly’s relationship with Aaliyah in the 90s was also discussed in Surviving R. Kelly where he married her when she was 15 and he was 27. He also beat the sex tape case in 2003 where he urinated on a teenage girl but beat all charges because the girl’s family refused to say it was her on camera.
