R. Kelly Releases Video Teaser for New Chapters of 'Trapped in the Closet'


R. Kelly


In the upcoming installment of the Hip-Hopera, Kelly will reprise his alter ego Sylvester, bring back fans' favorite characters and introduce new faces.

R. Kelly is preparing to revive "Trapped in the Closet", a "Hip-Hopera" based on five songs on his 2005 album "TP.3 Reloaded". In anticipation of it, the R&B singer unleashes a teaser for what's to come when the new chapters of the operetta are released later this year.

The Hip-Hopera is described as "part contemporary movie musical, part urban soap opera, part epic music video, part independent film." It's a groundbreaking series that defies categorization and "unfolds like a juicy tabloid story, full of suspense, mystery, drama and packed with unexpected twists and turns."

It follows Sylvester (Kelly) along with his crew Rufus, Cathy, Gwendolyn, Bridget, Big Man, Rosie the Nosy Neighbor, Twan and Pimp Lucius in a complex story packed with cliffhangers and unexpected twists and turns. They are "interconnected by sexual exploits, little people and a mysterious package."

Despite being a sensation, "Trapped in the Closet" stopped after chapter 22 due to budgetary problem. The operetta was later released in two-volume DVD; "Trapped in the Closet Chapters 1-12" in 2005, and "Trapped in the Closet Chapters 13-22" in 2007.

Now in the upcoming chapters, not only will Kelly reprise his alter ego Sylvester and bring back most of the main characters, but he's also going to add new faces on it. Collaborating once again with IFC, he said, " 'Trapped in the Closet' fans put on your seatbelts 'cause 'Trapped in the Closet' is coming to take you away."

"When I first began experiencing the unknown journey of writing Trapped in the Closet I knew after the first chapter that I had tapped into something that was not of this earth," he recalled. "Being the nosy person that I am, I more than anyone wanted to know what the second chapter would be."

"And now here we are at chapter 23, trapped in the million dollar question - what the hell is the package? Well, ladies and gentlemen, not only am I ready to reveal what the package is, but I have many more chapters to share," the Grammy-winning artist continued gushing.

Filming for the new chapter will begin in Chicago in Spring. "You'll find out pretty early on what the package is, and whose got the package," teased Ann Carli, the producer of the revived "Trapped". The new installment will also be made in to DVD expected to be released by the holidays.
