Jacquees has made a bold statement that's ruffled a few feathers.
The Cash Money artist took to social media over the weekend to assert that he's the king of R&B, and from what we can gather, the 23 singer wasn't talking about ribs and barbecue. "I just want to let everybody know that I'm the king of R&B right now," he said.
Some of the Internet raised its digital eyebrow at the boast, while others paid it no attention. Tyrese, however, didn't take kindly to the assertation.
"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."
Tyrese 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 n***a. Get back in the booth."View this post on Instagram

FYI the last real R&B album through and through that has the integrity and blueprint of the culture that was made with NO skips was #ThreeKings you got this out of the T69 play book stop trolling my nigha get back in the booth.....
Tank, having gotten wind of Jacquees' statements, refuted his "king" claim. "First, R.Kelly is the king of R&B. 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 the word "king" too loosely."View this post on Instagram
Every artist is supposed to believe they can fly but only one man made it happen. @rkelly body of work is still bible. I love ALL of the artist 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..geesh!!! I’ll let you guys focus on kings and queens.. I’ll stay focused on being around for another 20yrs! #Elevation #RnBMoney #TheGeneral

Tekashi 6ix9ine is maintaining his innocence in his racketeering case despite the mounting evidence against him. His attorney Lance Lazzaro recently told TMZ that a plea deal is "off the table."
"A plea deal is simply off the table, even if the feds offer one," Lazarro told the celebrity news publication.
Tekashi's refusal to make a deal comes only one day after prosecutors presented photos and videos taken from his phone that prove the Brooklyn native's involvement in at least three armed robberies and shootings that went down in BK earlier this year. While the media found on his device does not show 6ix9ine pulling the trigger or holding a weapon, authorities are suggesting that he was the ringleader of all the crimes and enlisted others to do the dirty work for him. Tekashi's former manager, Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, is the only one who has been identified in the incidents at this time.
Nevertheless, Lazarro maintains his clients innocence, stating that he "was never part of a conspiracy, plain and simple. Nor did he ever participate in any incidents that the government has alleged." Despite his unwillingness to take a plea deal, Lazarro said 6ix9ine is fully cooperating with prosecutors.
Things aren't looking to good for Ty Dolla $ign at the moment. The singer has reportedly been indicted on drug charges, and that could mean serious prison time.
Ty Dolla was reportedly indicted on felony cocaine and THC possession as well as a misdemeanor possession for one ounce of marijuana, TMZ reports.
He was reportedly busted while riding around in a limo in Fulton County, Georgia in Sept. 2018. Police reportedly arrested Ty after drug dogs discovered the illegal substances on him. While the singer was riding around with a handful of people, including DJ Skrillex, he was the only one detained by police. He was reportedly arrested just two hours before he was expected to co-headline a show at ATL's Cellaris Arena, alongside G-Eazy.
This is a serious situation for Ty. If he is convicted, he's facing up to 15 years in prison. Ty Dolla $ign has not commented on his current legal statement at this time. It is unclear when he is due back in court.
