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.
“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.
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.
While Jacquees is lying in yodel, I would thank you all to stop bringing up R. Kelly in the king of r&b conversation. Only thing he need to be king of is a jail cell. pic.twitter.com/O7ke6pDyci
