A few weeks ago I heard that R. Kelly would be filming the video for his next single, "Rock Star," downtown, with Michigan Avenue closed off for a live performance with Ludacris and Kid Rock on a flatbed truck and a bunch of helicopters filming it and all sorts of Hype Williams-meets-James Cameron ish. It looks like the project's scale had to be pulled back, because now it's just them playing a relatively small room with zero helicopter shots.
But one part of the video concept that I first heard about made it in: local guyliner proponents Kill Hannah play Kells, Luda, and Kid Rock's backing band. One can only hope that R. is considering them for a far stranger Best of Both Worlds collabo.
