I just watched R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet in its entirety on MTV2. There's a video of all 5 parts, and it's pretty unreal. I've heard the first 2 parts (or maybe 3), but never the whole thing. I always liked it for it's sing-speak and the ridiculousness of the storytelling, but without knowing where the narrative goes it's hard to get the full effect. Oh my G-d. When Pitchfork put it's genre as OMG WTF, they weren't kidding. You can watch all 5 parts here.

Pitchfork: "Take the "Trapped in the Closet" cycle, for instance-- perhaps the most bizarre, audacious, brilliant undertaking a major artist has attempted in years."
