A Singer Named Jacquees Declared Himself The King Of R&B, And People Have Thoughts

December 11, 2018 / Posted by:


A millennial singer named Jacquees (yeah, me neither) got Twitter shaken up yesterday by crowning himself the King of R&B. It got Tyrese Gibson to end his hiatus from being messy to laugh so hard he grew all his hair back and quickly shaved it off to add his two cents.

First, let’s get into the fuckery. Here’s Jacquees introducing himself to people who have no idea who the hell he is (read: everyone) by staking a claim that probably made even the hearing impaired laugh their asses off.

Now why he go and say that? Because them’s fightin’ words! According to Vibe, Tyrese took to Instagram (in a post he has since deleted) to offer his input on who the true King of R&B is.

“Ima keep it stack with you,” the Transformers star posted. “The young kings of this generation that’s been running sh*t since day one are Chris Brown and Trey Songz.”

The soul singer continued and accused the Decatur, GA native of employing Tekashi 6ix 9ine tactics. “You got this out of the Tekashi 6ix9ine playbook. Stop trolling, my ni**a. Get back in the booth.”

I’m mad he took the initial post down, but since celebrities never shut up, he posted a second video where he showcased one of his own plaques to keep the conversation going.

#TalkYoShitBlackTy… Last time speaking on this… If R&B relied on me to keep it on…. The game would of died a long time ago….. Cause I love it TOO MUCH to drop 2 albums a year or even every other year…….. Unlike most of this watered down shit on the radio… I sing from a REAL PLACE… If I ain’t going through shit, I ain’t got nothing to sing about…. I could care less about the young fellas out here singing and getting it done…. I LOVE that this game called R&B is welcoming that new batch, that new generation…. I don’t sing for TEENS… I’m #GROWN… I seen your post @torylanez lol I wanna make sure I’m VERY clear about the backlash @jacquees got…. And trust that energy ain’t about young vs the OG’s it’s about RESPECT!!!!! I drop when I want to…… his words “I’m the KING of this generation” is a reach my nigha… He’s not IN my generation but you’re not the king of YOUR generation that’s the problem…. Chris? Trey? Eric Bellinger? No? The game changed the last time I touched it….. With #TGT’s #ThreeKingsAlbum and #BLACKROSE My single #SHAME was #1 for 16 WEEKS!!! FACTS!!!!! if STREAMING was full throttle I know I would of sold double platinum at least…I respect the culture and the shoulders I stand on that was here long before I got here…… and even with those last stats from 2015 I would never say I’m KING….. So yeah I get it… You’ve gotten more attention from trolling than any song or album you’ve ever dropped but you gotta show some respect….. ..( ps… that idea of the R&B click dropping a single on the same day got a vibe on it )….

But wait, there’s more! R&B singers Trey Songz and Ty Dollar Sign had probably the shortest, shadiest reactions of all.

Even Tank had this to say about the statement.

Now, you know it’s on and poppin’ whenever someone brings Uncle Pissy (aka R. Kelly) into the mix. And since he’s not one to shy away from the spotlight he posted this to his Instagram.

Bottom line: Jacquees’ statement was the equivalent of an attention trap, and these cats hit the “like” button immediately. Bravo brothas! You’ve all just used your celebrity to level up someone we had no idea even existed before. But honestly, of all the reactions I came across, this one by far wins the internet.
