"Sadie" pays tribute to the artist's departed mother. "For You" pledges romantic commitment. One line in "Summer Bunnies" states, "I won't call 'em hos, 'cause in the '90s, you gotta respect the ladies." However . . .
Kelly's disrespect for women speaks much louder. Crude sexual references dominate this disc, including talk of "freakin' that body," sex "from behind" and so on. "Homie Lover Friend" alludes to using pornography. "Summer Bunnies" approves of group sex and getting an alcohol buzz. Gangsta violence takes center stage on "Back to the Hood A' Things."
It's understandable that young R&B fans would find R. (Robert) Kelly's smooth vocal style and catchy melodies attractive. Too bad he's prostituting himself by producing audio porno. Don't let teens be seduced.
