As we previously reported, earlier this week, R. Kelly stopped by WGCI radio in his hometown of Chicago and revealed details regarding his upcoming album “Black Panties.”

But Kellz also talked about young R&B singers Trey Songz and Chris Brown, and how the two of them are following in his footsteps.

See what R. Kelly had to say about Chris Brown below:

“Chris Brown is already there as far as he’s concerned. Because you know, he’s a humble guy. Chris Brown used to come to my studio when he was 13, 14, 15 and 16 and he learned a lot from me.

“I used to lecture him all the time. I’ve got the upmost respect for Chris Brown. My hat goes off to him. Because why? He got in the studio, he did what he was supposed to do and he bounced back like a round ball.”

It’s no secret that Kellz has had his fair share of beef with Trey Songz though, but the R&B legend still paid the young crooner some compliments. “I know Trey Songz is a guy that if he keeps with the hits and he humbles himself a little bit more, he will definitely be one of the runners up.”

Do you agree with R. Kelly?
