R. Kelly: the Audio Book

Sparkle, the log cabin, and the Little Man defense—all on your iPod.

Less than two months after a Chicago jury found R. Kelly not guilty on child pornography charges, the R&B star's new album, 12 Play: Fourth Quarter, has leaked online. If a new batch of Kelly tunes isn't enough to sate your ears, give a listen to "Dispatches From the R. Kelly Trial," now in audio-book form. You'll now find audio versions alongside each original dispatch: the stories from the trial's first week, Josh Levin's second round of essays, and his analysis of the not-guilty verdict.
