The last time R. Kelly released a lo-fi video of himself looking into a camera, this happened*. So it’s not hard for this video to be better than that one, especially since this new video is a clip of Kells speaking (very gingerly) to his fans after undergoing an emergency throat surgery a few weeks back. This video was posted a few days after the surgery, but really only hit the net this week, so we have to assume Kells is better off now than he is in this clip. But given that his manager said he’d have to be hospitalized “indefinitely,” it’s possible he’s still not out of the woods yet. [Vibe]
*- Update: This is a video that is better than either of these lo-fi videos starring R. Kelly staring into a camera.
