R. Kelly’s ‘Ignition’ is about under aged girls according to his former lawyer.
Kelly, said that he never did anything illegal with underage girls on a television interview. But R. Kelly’s is not the only voice on the matter. His former lawyer, Ed Genson claimed the original version he heard confirmed Kelly’s interest in underaged girls.
Also, there have been 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in the past, with four women he’s accused of now, are not the first charges Kelly has faced. In 2008 he was acquitted of child pornography charges; that case was dragged out over six years by a defense team headed by Ed Genson, a well-known, even notorious Chicago criminal defense attorney.
Genson also talked about his time working with Kelly and how he kept the singer “out of trouble,”
Before giving fans the ‘Ignition’ remix in 2002, which went on to become one of Kelly’s biggest hits, the original was more a slow jam than an upbeat club track, complete with car metaphors for sex.
“I was riding in the car, listening to a song and said, “Are you crazy?” Genson said to Kelly at the time. Causing Kelly to re-write it. It’s now a song related to a guy driving around in a car with his girlfriend. It was originally a high school instructor in a class teaching people how to drive a car. I changed the words.”
Genson said he listened to songs in an effort to keep Kelly’s profile clean. “I did facilitate him in the sense I kept him out of trouble for 10 years,” he said. “I listened to them, [to see] which ones would make a judge mad.”
Meanwhile, R. Kelly was released from jail today after paying his unpaid child support.
According to reports, the singer has now paid the $161,633 he owed, and was released today from Cook County Jail. As he walked out, Kelly said, “I promise we’re gonna straighten all this out. That’s all I can say right now. I love my fans.”
