R. Kelly will soon provide us with the next chapter of his scandalous, ADD-addled and super-weird hip-hop soap opera—er, sorry, series of musical minifilms—Trapped in the Closet. As the below video—taken by the tenacious paparazzi at TMZ while the irresistibly outlandish '90s crooner was leaving Sony's NYC offices—reveals, installment 34 will be out in a couple of months.

The series, which is broadcast on IFC, is written, composed, codirected and sung by R. Kelly. He also plays myriad roles in the story, a saga densely woven with plotlines and cliffhangers set off by a one-night stand that tells the trials and tribulations of the Trapped in the Closet gang: Sylvester, Pimp Lucius, Randolph, Reverend Mosley James Evans and plenty more.
