Jacquees Crowns Himself King of R&B, Hilarity Ensues When Tank, J. Holiday Respond

The singer Jacquees recently called himself the king of R&B, and it received two quick responses from Tank and J. Holiday.

“I just want to let everyone know that I’m the king of R&B right now for this generation,” said Jacquees. “I understand who done came and who done did that, that and that. But now it’s my turn. Jacquees the king of R&B … I’ve been feeling like that.”

Tank’s response came first, and he said there’s only one king of R&B, despite all of the sexual misconduct accusations surrounding him.

“First, R. Kelly is the king of R&B,” he wrote. “The accusations don’t disqualify what he’s accomplished. Second, if you can’t go in the studio by yourself and make a hit record, you’re not my king. If you can’t sing it better live you’re not my king. I appreciate all the talent out there, but we are using this word ‘king’ way too loosely.”

Tank then added a few more words in the caption space.

“I love all of the artists out now and some are having amazing success, but to be the king you have to beat the king, and his stats still stand. Imagine if ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ had streaming when it dropped.”

J. Holiday’s response came after Tank’s, and he also disagreed with Jacquees about being the top R&B act.

“That sh–, that bullsh– that man said, there’s three kings of R&B,” he explained. “The first sold 20 million on his first album, the second king of R&B is from Chicago and the third one is from Tappahannock. Four and five right here.”

But Holiday didn’t only get clowned for putting himself on the king list, people also noticed that someone asked him if he was a parking attendant.

“Shawty tried J. Holiday and asked if he was valet,” one person wrote. “He should’ve recorded this sh– over.”

Tank also clowned Holiday for being confused for a valet, which you can see below.
