*R. Kelly, in the midst of a 30 year prison sentence for sex trafficking, was recorded railing over how his medical needs are being ignored, reports hiphopdx.com.
In audio obtained by RapHouseTV, the disgraced crooner is heard ranting about the prison disregarding blood clots that were discovered in his legs, which later resulted in him needing surgery on his Achilles tendon.
Kelly says in the audio that he’s “scared for his life” and that animals are treated better than him. He continued, “I don’t deserve to die because somebody miscommunicated or somebody took a guess at what’s going on with my leg. I’m not supposed to die this way. You’re not even supposed to take a chance on that.
“Because if it was your child, if it was your father, if it was your mother, somebody you loved, you would’ve said, ‘Go to the doctor. We need to get that checked out. We need to look at that. We need to X-ray that.’”
He added: “They didn’t even X-ray. And that’s why I’m speaking out on this, because I’m scared for my life in that area. And who wouldn’t be. They treat animals better than that.”

R. Kelly’s lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, complained about her client’s lack of medical attention to Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. She claimed Kelly was receiving negligent care by the Bureau of Prisons after having surgery on his Achilles tendon due to suffering blood clots.
“It’s not just because it’s R. Kelly,” she told ABC7 at the time. “Every prison deserves medical attention, medical care. The MCC is required to address these things in a competent fashion.”
In other R. Kelly news, his former cellmate is claiming that the singer believe Jay-Z one put a hit out on him.
Ronnie Bo told Hip Hop News Uncensored: “He felt like Jay-Z was kind of secure because, at the time, R. Kelly was technically bigger than him. He felt like [during] one of the shows when they was in Madison Square Garden [in 2004] prior to that event, he said days before the event that he was getting death threats that he felt was coming from Jay-Z.”
He continued: “Like Jay-Z was trying to basically, I don’t know if this is going to sound outrageous, but he felt like Jay-Z was trying to get him killed for whatever reason.”
