On Sunday (Oct. 13), ‘Quees posted and deleted a video on Instagram where he goes at the 2019 XXL Freshman.
“Aye, man. I was gonna let the little nigga breathe,” the “King of R&B” starts. “YK Osiris, stop knocking on my fucking door. Stop asking me for big bro advice. Stop. You had my name in your mouth with Sway, that was a mistake. You can’t sing like me, lil’ bro. I wanted you to win, I still do. Don’t bring my muthafuckin’ name up. You not on my level. At all.”
Jacquees’ reaction was in response to an interview YK did with MTV’s Sway Calloway on Friday (Oct. 11), where he told the host Jacquees wasn’t on his level as an artist. During the sit-down, Sway asked The Golden Child singer about a recent Instagram post where he claimed to be the “king of R&B of this generation,” a title Jacquees has previously claimed (and faced backlash for).
After admitting to Sway that Chris Brown is the official crown holder of the genre, YK explained himself.
“In the new generation, it’s not a lot of singers,” he said. “Jacquees, you feel me. I don’t think he really messing with me like that. Not music-wise. Now, vocals, yeah, he got it. But just music, nah, for sure.”
