Smoke from the internet-raging “King of R&B debate” hasn’t totally cleared just yet.
Jacquees, the first contender responsible for opening fire on the week-long R&Battle after claiming the throne, might just want more of that smoke, as told by a bold comment he left on a shady Instagram post from Tank.
The men share a laugh in the picture that, judging from Tank’s caption, might have something to do with their reactions to Jacquees’ “King of R&B” claim. “He said what?” Tank wrote with a series of laughing-face emojis. Jacquees pulled up on the post directly to reinforce his prior message (sans the laughing faces, may we point out).
“U know what I said,” he responded.
And even encouraged the young 4275 crooner to talk his sh**.
“Just tearing a young black man down, smh,” the Instagrammer wrote. “He could be out here robbing and selling drugs but because he feels something in himself that the world doesn’t see, y’all bash him?” The fan continued on to take shots at Tank’s “black power” talk, which he feels is invalidated by the shady Instagram post centered on Jacquees.
“You’re diving into a space you have no qualifications to land in,” he wrote. “There’s something bigger at work but your anger won’t allow you to see it.” Tank added that the fan jumped the gun with his comments, considering that the photo is only a snapshot of a bigger picture that has not been revealed yet. “You’re just falling for the hupe like most followers…you’re eyes will soon see. R&B FOREVER!”
Hmm...what do you have up that sleeve there, Tank?
