R. Kelly Writes Song For Virginia Tech
R. Kelly has written a new song, "Rise Up," about healing in the aftermath of the April 16 shootings at Virginia Tech. A gunman killed 32 people and himself on the university's campus in Blacksburg, Va.
"Rise Up" will be available digitally May 15, and 100 percent of the net proceeds from its sale will go to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, said Jive Records, Kelly's record label.
Kelly, 40, wrote the inspirational ballad after watching the events unfold on television while he was on tour, Jive said. The lyrics include the lines: "Rise up, when you feel you can't go on, rise up, and all of your hope is gone, rise up, when you're weak and you can't be strong." (source)
That was very nice of Robert. However, he may be singing another tune if his brother, Killa Kell, has anything to do with it. His interview with WorldStarHipHop
has been heating up message boards and gossip blogs all around the net. Hmph, I'm clutching my pearls.

My favorite part of the chit-chat was when Killa (sigh) broke down the astrological bond between him and Jay-Z. Oh yeah, he got "deep" real quick. I now understand the connection between James Brown and I.
Use don't abuse (ie. adding me to your site's mailing list). And for the love of God please stop sending mp3 files of your music. I am not Clive Davis and to be frank I probably don't want to hear the shit anyway. You should also know that I take my slow, precious time responding to email. And sometimes I don't respond at all.
