Tory took up residence at Drai’s Nightclub, where he urged the crowd to sing R. Kelly’s 1993 hit “Bump N’ Grind.” Fans in the audience were singing their hearts out to Kellz’s iconic introduction to the song as Lanez soaked up the energy from the crowd.
“You the reason R. Kelly can’t recognize that he’s abusive,” Paige yells on the song, to which Kendrick replies, “Man, shut the fuck up, we all know you still playin’ his music.”
The line caused a huge debate on Twitter, with people defending R. Kelly and his hit-making prowess, while others dragged the Chicago native regardless of his legendary career. If the courts have their way, R. Kelly faces up to 10 years to life in prison. His sentencing date has been moved from May 4 to June 16.
