In 2005 R. Kelly brought us the first of 33 chapters of his rap opera “Trapped in the Closet.” Now, in a GQ exclusive, R. Kelly brings us his memoirs, in 45 minutes of storytelling and singing (and a five-minute abridged version, for those who can only take so much of R. Kelly talking about shooting stars). Read our profile by Chris Heath, written from three lengthy interviews in Chicago, and then listen to the story from the man himself.
