Well here we are now…

Closing the closet door…
This site has run its course. The functionality will persist in slow decay like a jeep stuck in the mud beneath high-tension wires. See: clairechanel.com for other projects in the same spirit.
We are here to serve the creative community growing up around R. Kelly’s ever-evolving song cycle. You are encouraged to leave your thoughts, contribute your own work, or make a link to an existing piece of Trapped In The Closet-inspired art. Please contact Claire Chanel with any questions or suggestions. We’re a young site and there is still a lot of growing to do!
In order to reduce server load, the tracker has been cleaned off. Only the odd and unusual files remain. There are many more acapellas on the way and they will all be available as direct downloads.
What can I do here?
Publish your own work
Pull a Trey Songz and tell another side of the story. Open up an audio editor and dub out the instrumental with some fan acapellas. Cut up some found video or 3-d game footage to recast the videos like Kendra Flemons’ machinima adaptation.
Of course, you can go the crazy route with an all-out parody like Jimmy Kimmel or the folks behind Harry Potter: Trapped in the Closet Under the Stairs.
Don’t sweat the bandwidth. Publishing big files is easy with the R. Kelly’s Closet Broadcast Machine.
