Although R. Kelly is in prison, he’s still celebrating his birthday. The singer posted a song for fans on Instagram titled “Shut Up.” The tune isn’t new, but the version he posted seems to be.
The photo he posted with the song is of him draped in championship belts. He titled the post, “Thank you God, for My Life!” In the song, he seems to be addressing allegations against him, but, sadly, isn’t taking accountability for his actions.
Lyrics to “Shut Up” include, “After 22 years of a blessed career/Had me lying in my hospital bed crying mad tears/But just as I have many people hating me/Had so many people loving me/And let’s not forget the hood around the world covering me/And to everybody that be calling me/Telling what they’ve been saying about me/Bringing me all of this negative s—, ya’ll the ones I ain’t f—g with.”

According to Page Six, Kelly is scheduled to go to trial in April.
