R. Kelly Writing Trapped in the Closet Book

R. Kelly recently released ten new chapters of the ”hip hop” soap opera, Trapped in the Closet.

In one scene of the newly released footage, a character holds up a heavy book in an infomercial. In an interview with Fast Company, Kelly revealed that he has two Trapped in the Closet spin-off projects in-the-works: a book and a musical.

Here’s more from the interview: “The Trapped in the Closet book you see as an infomercial in the new chapters is a book that’s on its way, that I’m writing. I know where Chuck was before he met Rufus. I know what was happening before they actually met. I know what happened with Bridget and the midget and everybody else’s situation. So I feel like the fans have supported Trapped in the Closet, so I feel like it’s time to introduce them to these people before what they saw. It’s the prequel meeting the sequel.” (via Shelf Life)
