R Kelly is currently on trial for doing bad things to girls and boys.

So some folks were put off when they saw Kells listed as co-lyricist on the new Drake track "TSU".

Drake's producer and main man Noah "40" Shebib spoke on what was going on with that in the comment section of an IG post featuring an article about the song.

"On a song called tsu at the beginning is a sample of OG Ron c talking. Behind that faintly which you can’t even hear is an r Kelly song playing in the background. It has no significance no lyrics are present, r Kelly’s voice isn’t even present but if we wanted to use Ron c talking we were forced to license it. Doesn’t sit well with me let me just say that. And I’m not here to defend drakes lyrics, but I thought I would clear up that there is no actual r Kelly present and it’s a bit misleading to call him a co lyricist. It’s kinda wild cause I was just reading “Baby Girl” by Kathy Iandoli and the recounts of some of that stuff is horrific and disgusting. Then I saw this post and just had to say something because to think we would stand beside that guy or write with him is just incredibly disgusting," 40 said.

So there you go.
