Just when you thought the saga of R&B singer/producer R. Kelly had come to close, at least in the drama department, one of the singer’s associates says Kelly neglected those who put him on. If anyone knows R. Kelly, it’s former R.Kelly & MGM member and founder Marc McWilliams aka Marcus Darc. According to Darc (in video below), Kelly forgot about those who put him on and supported him after the group won a $100,000 grand prize on Natalie Cole’s “Big Break” show. Setting the record straight for the first time, with the purpose of clearing his conscious to work on forthcoming projects, Darc says: “I’m not a bitter man.” “In fact, I consider myself blessed. I originally left my home of Chicago to make a mark in this business. Whether it takes me two days or 20 years, my vision is clear and right in front of me. My career has been a rollercoaster ride and I can drop names with the best of them. My label is named Lucky Entertainment for a reason!” Not only does Darc share his story through the roughly eight minute video, he also showcases Kelly in parody form choosing what appears to be a teenage girl with pigtails over adult women at a house party. The video also showcases several historical shots of Kelly, Darc and the remainder of MGM performing before Robert Kelly (gov’t name) became “The King of R&B” – R. Kelly. Darc also name drops those who he says Kelly has abused and neglected since rising to the top of the charts with records like “I Believe I Can Fly,” “Bump and Grind,” and “Ignition”. “Friendz or Foez,” the title of the cut, leads Darc’s “Lucky Entertainment, The Soundtrack, Vol. 1.0” featuring R&B/soul artist Gino Barletta and production from Taryll Jackson.
