Jacquees Denounces Keith Sweat As The King Of R&B In Awkward Exchange

"This the King from back then, I’m the King for right now."

Jacquees continues his crusade to prove he’s the King of R&B, and now he’s brought Keith Sweat into the mix… even if Sweat didn’t want to be.

Recently, the “Twisted” singer was interviewed by TMZ’s cameras backstage at the V-103 Winterfest in Atlanta. He was prompted about who he thinks is the rightful King of the genre. Before he could get to thinking, the 4275 singer (who was walking past) chimed in.

“Wait, wait… this the King from back then, I’m the King for right now,” the 24-year-old said. “This Keith Sweat, Big Sweat, but it’s Big ‘Que.”

Visibly annoyed, Sweat stated that he’s still making money and his spot is secure.
“Hold on, I’m still gettin’ that bag,” he laughed. “I don’t know what he’s talking about.”

Of course, Jacquees didn’t back down, stating that he’s the king of the younger set of musicophiles. “He gettin’ a bag, but 16 to 25 is my generation,” he smiled as he walked away.

Sweat’s agitated reaction has made the rounds on social media, but the video of him telling Jacquees to apologize to him is really even better.

“He ran up me, said ‘I’m the King of my generation, 16 to 25,’” he recalled. “The only thing he heard was ‘King.’ So, you need to apologize, young man.”

Watch the exchanges below.

As She Should: Megan Thee Stallion Reportedly Files To Trademark ‘Hot Girl Summer’

It’s the unofficial theme of summer 2019, and everything from celebrities to brands– big and small– have taken note. In a very wise move, rapper and originator of the term “Hot Girl Summer” Megan Thee Stallion has reportedly filed to trademark the phrase sweeping the nation.

Per Billboard, the trademark was filed on Jul. 10, the same day the Texas MC declared that she was “in the process” of making the term trademarked.

“The saying has taken off across the country thanks to her diehard Hotties fanbase, which Meg defines as women -- and men -- ‘unapologetically’ being themselves and "living their truth,” writes the site.

“Hot Girl Summer” has been used the world over (most recently in cringe-inducing fashion) by brands such as Forever 21, Wendy’s and Maybelline. According to the report, if the phrase is approved, the trademark will cover the saying on merch such as hoodies, T-shirts and sportswear.

Yes mam it’s been in the process 🔥💙 https://t.co/ZQfZbZNqhK

R. Kelly’s crisis manager Darrell Johnson has reportedly stepped down from his position.

According to a message sent out by journalist Tia Ewing, as of Monday (Jul. 22), Johnson announced his resignation to Fox 32 in Chicago. “Mr. Kelly is in good hands with [lawyer] Mr. [Steve] Greenberg!” Johnson wrote in the message.

Per Ewing, this is a message sent directly from Johnson. The news was subsequently confirmed by CBS News.

Johnson recently stated that his former client was a “normal person,” however, he also said that he would “never” leave his own daughter with anyone who is an accused pedophile during an interview with CBS News.

"They've indicted Mr. Kelly. He's in jail right now. He will have his day in court," Johnson said during the interview with Gayle King. "And they'll have to bring the evidence. And that's what has to be done. If the evidence stick, Mr. Kelly will spend the rest of his life in the penitentiary."

Kelly is currently behind bars and was recently denied bail after a slew of new federal sex crime charges, including sex trafficking, found their way into public consciousness. He has pleaded not guilty and maintains his innocence.
