#SurvivingRKelly: Future speaks on R. Kelly Sex Abuse Scandal
Future has shared his view on the R. Kelly sex abuse scandal, saying the world is giving too much attention to the singer and the scandal surrounding him.
The rapper stopped by the Power 106 studio during the promotional run for his studio album ‘The WIZRD’. While there, he spoke about everything from his writing skills and upcoming documentary to Lady Gaga and the significance of radio play.
Host J Cruz then asked him if he would record with R. Kelly and Future replied:
Man, who is that? I thought we had forgot about that? We giving it too much attention.
When you give things too much attention, they blow up. That’s why he gon’ blow up. That’s why his music gonna do what it do. If you stop talking about it, it’ll go away.
Future’s statement rubbed a lot of people the wrong way as they pointed out that not giving it attention means that the accusations will die down and sexual predators will thrive and keep going free.
Meanwhile, Future’s 2012 “Parachute” track features R. Kelly and, unlike artists like Lady Gaga and Omarion, Future hasn’t made any mention of retiring the track with the alleged sexual abuse
