*R. Kelly recently told XXL Magazine this month why he created TP2.com. He also took time to break down one of his compositions.
“Well ‘I Wish’ was basically about Tupac at first.” Says Kelly. “I met Tupac in L.A. – the [Hotel Nikko], and he was rolling by in his drop-top whatever hot car. I seen him, and I yelled out, “‘Pac! ‘Pac!” He was driving by, rolling by himself. I’m like, ‘This ni**a got a lot of balls to be rolling by his self!” So we kicked it for a minute, I said “Dude, we need to do an album.” See, The Best Of Both Worlds was for me and Pac at first. ‘I Wish’ was gonna be the first song we were gonna do.”
Kelly’s next album will be released by the end of the year.
