R. Kelly was convicted on racketeering and sex crime charges last year.

He was imprisoned in a New York prison without bail.

While his sentencing approaches, federal prosecutors urge the judge for a minimum of 25 years.

They also want him to be severely punished with the likelihood of life imprisonment.

The prosecutors believe Kelly will be a risk to the public if he is released.

The former singer was found guilty of racketeering and eight counts of sex offenses.

His crimes were documented in a Netflix series titled "Surviving R. Kelly."

Several people discussed Kelly's crimes following his verdict.

Chuck D spoke on the conviction, but he was slammed for his remarks.
