Akon slammed after saying R. Kelly should be given chance to ‘redeem’ himself

Akon is in hot water after making a remark about R. Kelly’s conviction.

 

After declaring that the “I Believe I Can Fly” hitmaker should be given a second chance to “repair” his misdeeds, the “Right Now (Na Na Na)” singer received backlash online.

 

“I think God does not make mistakes. People may argue all day, but if it’s happening to him, it’s supposed to happen to him, for whatever reason,” the 48-year-old singer told TMZ in an interview. “Now, that is something he must possess inside himself in order to review his entire life, his way of being.”

“Because to get caught up in a situation like that, whatever happens, is between him and God,” Akon, born Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam, continued. “There is always a way to redeem yourself,” he continued, “but you must first accept the fact that you are wrong.”

 

R Kelly has the right to atone for his mistakes, according to Akon, who added that Kelly also has the right to try to make amends.

 

He also added that those who have been reportedly harmed by Kelly have the right to not forgive him. The “Smack That” singer, on the other hand, believes that “unforgiveness simply adds to the misery.”

“At the end of the day, you cannot deny his talent,” Akon replied when questioned about Kelly being dropped by people. “He is one of the finest R&B musicians, composers, and producers who came into this business,” he continued. That’s something you can’t take away from him right now.”

 

Akon concluded, “We’re not to be the ones to judge either since we weren’t there.” “As I previously stated, he is the only one who can help himself, and what happened is between him, God, and the victims.”

Many users on Twitter expressed their displeasure with Akon’s statement. “He must be imprisoned and the key thrown away!! “It’s always these black males oppressing their fellow black men, especially when they are in bad times,” one user remarked, while another said, “It’s always these black men oppressing their fellow black men.”

 

“What happens to the principles of silence when you have nothing nice to say or words of encouragement or consolation to say to a brother in need?” a different critic wondered.

 

“A little late, don’t you think???” said a fourth. R. Kelly should stop rapping women.”

Kelly was convicted of molesting women, boys, and girls sexually. The 54-year-old singer/songwriter was found guilty on nine counts, including racketeering and violating the Mann Act, which prevents girls from being transported across state lines for sex.

Dr. Dre Receives Divorce Papers At Grandmother’s Funeral

Dr. Dre, the hip hop artist and super producer extraordinaire, was recently issued with divorce papers during the burial of his grandmother. This comes after a long period of conflict with his estranged ex-wife Nicole Young. Young filed for divorce from Dre in 2020 after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The extra 1.2 million Dr. Dre is ordered by the judge to pay to cover Young’s legal bills is the subject of the most current set of divorce proceedings being filed. While both sides allege different versions of events, it is true that Dr. Dre was present at his grandmother’s funeral or was served with the papers by a process server immediately afterward.

Dre claims he was approached while standing at the coffin of his grandmother, who he believes played a significant part in his upbringing. Dre was served in the parking lot after the funeral ceremony, according to Young’s attorneys.

 

Dre was hospitalized earlier this year after suffering a brain aneurysm. Dre’s home was targeted for a break-in while he was recovering from his brain injury. Dr. Dre is having a particularly difficult year in 2021 as a result of all of these occurrences, as well as his continuing divorce.

Dre released a clip of a song earlier this year after his recuperation from the brain aneurysm, which included words like “(Bitch) Trying to kill me with them lies and that perjury,” which alluded to both his disability and the pending divorce. Needless to say, this is not a painless divorce. Dre, along with longtime partner Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, will headline the Super Bowl halftime concert next year. By then, the divorce proceedings should be in the rearview mirror. Quit

Big Sean Goes Off In Freestyle Over Jay-Z, Drake & Kanye West Beats

Big Sean stopped by Power 106 in Los Angeles to show off his lyrical prowess in a new L.A. Leakers freestyle.

The Def Jam rapper rapped for nearly nine minutes, delivering a bar Big Sean kicked things off by spitting on Jay-“Dear Z’s Summer,” setting the tone quickly a decade after his last freestyle for the L.A. Leakers.

“I’ve given up wishing for the best and am now insisting on results/ If good karma doesn’t land on it first, I deal with it. Relentless how I give it all but never give in/ Just like NBA players in my girl’s DMs/ Consistently firing rounds that will never go in/ F### it, I’m only interested in creating money that we’ll never spend. My entire life feels like my blessings are arriving on time. I still despise seafood, but I’m a sucker for oysters,” he rapped.

About two minutes in, the L.A. Leakers switched things up by having Big Sean cover Drake’s “Love All” instrumental. With Kanye West’s “Hurricane” track, Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk rewrote the script once more.

“Everything I know now could’ve been added to the equation back then/

There’s nothing better than having it all, except losing it all and then regaining it.

I don’t need a casket when I die, I need a tomb/I don’t need a casket when I die, I need a tomb/I don’t need a casket when I die, I need a tomb/

My focus has returned, and now I’m being consumed/Yeah, I’m awake with the moon/Mother Nature, so what does it mean when I die and am buried? Sean Don rapped over the Yeezy track, “I’m going back in the womb.”

Big Sean finished the freestyle by rhyming over Nardo Wick’s “Who Want Smoke?” instrumental, which was produced in Florida. The Detroit native didn’t seem phased by the shift in pace, as he altered his flow and continued to spit bars.
