Jennifer Bojean mentioned that the culprit might have gotten their hands on his unreleased music back in 2019 after he got arrested. As per the lawyer, people started taking his studio equipment, computers, and masters of his recordings following his arrest. The album, I Admit It, features songs from R Kelly’s SoundCloud account and Sony Music confirmed that the songs appeared to be the bootleg versions of some of his songs. So they were quickly removed from the streaming platforms.

Earlier this year, R Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison after he was found guilty of 1 charge of racketeering and 8 charges of s*x trafficking. He is yet to go to court for 13 charges related to child p*rnography and obstruction of justice along with 11 charges relating to s*xual assault and abuse. R Kelly has been in custody since he was indicted by federal prosecutors in New York and Chicago in July 2019. Victims have claimed that the singer has “destroyed many lives.” Three prosecutors who fought against the singer have also received death threats after he was arrested.

People were surprised to see that the singer dropped music from the prison, however, the Federal Bureau of Prisons has confirmed that the artist did not record or produce any songs using equipment from within the prison as all his calls and emails were being recorded.
