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."
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.
