Cassidy wishes he’d spent more time getting to know R. Kelly

R. Kelly gave Cassidy one of his biggest hits in the 2000s with “Hotel,” but the rapper says he wishes he’d spent time getting to know him better.

“It was the first time I met him,” Cassidy told bootleg Kev. “I think it was my first time in Chicago too. Swizz and she told me different things about how it could be but when we went in there – I’m a super fan of R. Kelly, like my older brother who raised me we used to ride around the hood R. Kelly songs loud. I’ve been a super fan, so knowing that I’m working on my first album, finally got budgets cleared and how big it is, and I’m working on my first single with R. Kelly and Swizz Beatz produced it. So I was excited. I was super happy.”

Kelly will spend most of the rest of his life behind bars after being convicted of sexual abuse allegations.

“I wish I had a chance to date him more and see what kind of guy he is. The second time I met him was at the video shoot and after that I didn’t have a chance to meet him again. It was my first project and I hadn’t released any records, so I don’t really have anything that would tie him to me,” he said.
