Ever since BuzzFeed's 4,800-word story on R. Kelly's alleged "cult" went live earlier this month, the reactions and updates grow by the day. According to the lengthy investigative report, the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer is housing about five women and allegedly "controls every aspect of their lives: dictating what they eat, how they dress, when they bathe, when they sleep, and how they engage in sexual encounters that he records." Kelly has refuted the claims, and so have some of the alleged captives that are described in the story.

As the reactions continue to pour in, Vic Mensa offered his two cents during an interview with TMZ over the weekend. When asked about his thoughts, Vic was quick to assert "F-ck R. Kelly. R. Kelly is a scumbag and a very dirty man and he needs to be locked away forever."

If that wasn't enough, the ever-vocal Vince Staples took to Twitter with his own reaction to the claims, calling Kelly a "fool" and shared some food for thought for those who felt otherwise.
