The Weekend Entertainment Recap: December 12th

As the weekend kicked off, social media users were in an uproar following the release of a “new” R. Kelly album titled, “I Admit It.” Streaming platforms listed Sony’s information in the credits, however, it was later announced that the album was illegitimate. Attorneys for the infamous singer also came forward saying that the album was not authorized by Kelly. The 13-track album was only on streaming platforms for a few hours before it was removed from circulation.

Famed Miami rap star Uncle Luke and New York native Fat Joe also made headlines this weekend over claims on who discovered Trick Daddy and Pitbull. Fat Joe participated in an interview with Math Hoffa and noted that he mentioned both Trick Daddy and Pitbull to record executives.
