Can it be true? Is R.Kelly really going to release 32 more chapters of his equal parts hilarious and serious "Trapped in The Closet" series? Because on my last birthday that's the only thing I wished for when I blew out all the candles on my birthday cake. Please let R.Kelly make more of this ridiculous music I prayed to both God and Santa Claus.
In case you aren't up to speed on what the Trapped In The Closet series is, it is a 22-part epic song called a "hip-hopera" created in 2005 by R.Kelly that follows the story of a guy who finds out his wife is cheating on him with her neighbor, but the neighbor is a midget, and someone shoots someone and there's a condom in someone’s bed and someone else is pregnant. Do you understand now why he called it "hip hopera?"
So anyways, Kelly made 22 chapters of this ridiculous song series and wants to make 32 more! Kelly tells TMZ that he's already written 32 more chapters but says he's looking for some financial backing to produce them.
"It costs a lot of money to do [it]...so we're actually looking for investors," says Kelly.
The Trapped in The Closet series is both standard R. Kelly R&B, but also treads into very ridiculous territory as in, the sage features a pimp named Lucious with a severe stutter, a lesbian with an eye twitch, and also R. Kelly plays the role of 4 different characters including the stuttering pimp and a reverend. And you thought Charlie Sheen was crazy.
