R. Kelly is from that “chi-town dirt,” and with as much pride for his hometown of Chicago as Drake has for Toronto, Kells has paid tribute with his new video for “My Story.” It’s a collage that flashes back through his career with clips from previous videos, some recent live footage and black and white shots of him taking in the Windy City. But wait, what is that? Is that Robert conquering a skateboard in an undisclosed toy store? Indeed it is. Who knew Kells could ride?
Unfortunately, 2 Chainz, who drops a verse on “My Story,” must’ve been preoccupied because he’s nowhere to be seen. But when you’ve got R. Kelly’s life flashing before your eyes, who wants a distraction anyway?
“My Story” is the first single from R. Kelly’s upcoming album, the aptly titled Black Panties. According to Kells, he’s “on a Benjamin Button-type of mission right now. I’m goin’ back to the old school R. Kelly days where I did 12 Play, the sexy songs mixed with the hip-hop songs.” In other words, he’s already secured album of the year honours.
Oh yeah. There are some objectionable words, so watch at your own risk.Tweet
