In part two of his #CRWN interview with Elliott Wilson, R. Kelly spoke on his relationship with 2Pac and revealed he was the first rapper he approached to do a Best of Both Worlds-type album. In fact, “I Wish”, off his TP-2.com album, was a song he recorded with ‘Pac in mind. As for the MC he eventually did do a collaborative album with, Jay Z, Kellz recalled his disappointment over their fall-out but says he has no regrets. That’s probably because he recorded “Trapped in the Closet” just days after the fiasco.
R. Kelly also discussed how “Ignition (Remix)” came about, which current artists he looks up to and his future projects: a Christmas album and a Country album, both of which he’s about six songs deep into.
