R. Kelly Declares Himself Greatest Black Man Alive

That is right, he said it:

R&B singer R Kelly has pronounced himself the greatest black man of his generation.

The I Believe I Can Fly singer claims he is as iconic and talented in his field as a host of important black figures, including boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

He told Hip-Hop Soul magazine: "I'm the Ali of today. I'm the Marvin Gaye of today. I'm the Bob Marley of today. I'm the Martin Luther King, or all the other greats that have come before us.

"And a lot of people are starting to realise that now."

Kelly has also boasted no current musical artist can compare to his incredible talents.

He added: "My greatest competition is, well, me."

Meanwhile, Kelly's trial for charges of soliciting a minor for pornography purposes is finally expected to begin this summer.

In February 2002, a video tape surfaced which showed the singer allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

He was initially charged with 21 counts for having sex with a minor but these were reduced to the current charges still awaiting trial.

I am beside myself with fury, so I am going to let the folks at Agent Bedhead do the talking for me.

Seriously, if you can’t name a long, long list of black men superior to R Kelly, starting with, say, Nelson Mandela and ending with “that guy down the street whose yard always looks so nice,” then you’re so pathetically ignorant of the rest of the world that I can only assume your name is R Kelly.

Damn straight.
