This Video Of Jay-Z Calling Himself The 'King Of Cleveland' After LeBron Called Himself 'The King of NY' Is Petty Friendship Goals

"You can't be taking pictures of the Garden, talking about you the 'King of New York.'"

LeBron James definitely raised a few eyebrows last week when he posted an Instagram shot of himself on the Madison Square Garden floor with the caption "King of NY" after his Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the New York Knicks.

Diddy and Fabolous responded with a pair of looking-eyes emojis, while Michael Rapaport flat out lost his mind, blasting King James with zero chill.

The "King of NY" decree didn't go unnoticed by LeBron's friend Jay Z, either. During his 4:44 concert in Detroit on Saturday night — one that James attended with some of his Cavs teammates — Hov vowed to declare himself the "King of Cleveland" once he performs there.

And he made good on his promise Sunday night in the Land, calling himself just that. Take a look. 

Ahh ... #PettyFriendshipGoals! Aren't they the best?
