''He produces, writes, arranges, and sings. I'm inspired by people who are not one-dimensional. I have about 238 R. Kelly songs. I got unreleased stuff plus every [song] he has done on other [people's] albums. It's about the music, you know what I mean?

We should allow God to do his work and do all the judging.''
