Trapped in the Closet is a 33-part hip-hop era created by R. Kelly. The first batch of chapters was released in 2005 with 10 more coming out in 2007 and 11 more in 2012. Written and produced by R. Kelly, the series tells a story of a one-night stand which sets off a chain of events, gradually revealing a greater web of lies, sex, and deceit.
The plot of chapter 29 is that Reverend Mosley is trying to sell his new book, "Trapped in the Closet." After the advertisement is over, Tina and Roxane get into a fight resulting in Tina leaving.
While the advertisement for Reverend Mosley's book is playing, the phone number 312-380-6596 is shown on screen. This turned out to be a real phone number people could call and receive a special message (performed similarly to a chapter from Trapped in the Closet) from him explaining that his book is all sold out.
When calling the number today, it results in a call that cannot be completed, leaving the pre-recorded message unavailable for years.
On November 3rd, 2022, LMW Discord User MyDigitalVault/Aeuhhh had recorded the pre-recorded message from the phone number via Google Voice back when the phone number was still active and uploaded it on his YouTube channel, making it available to be listened in full.
