Jacquees Reflects on his “King of R&B” Claim and Internet Backlash
Jacquees, the Atlanta-based singer, who boldly proclaimed himself as the “King of R&B” some years ago, recently had a candid revelation about how that declaration took a wrong turn for him.
In a lively conversation featured on the latest episode of the Baller Alert podcast, published on August 19, Jacquees opened up about the constant accusations of dishonesty he faces from the online world. As he delved into the source of the negative attention, he came to a realization.
Admitting with a chuckle, he said, “I was trying to figure out where I went left with the internet. But it was when said I was King of R&B,”
Sharing a good laugh with the podcast hosts who pointed out his mistake, he was pressed further if he still holds onto that belief.
“Of course” he exclaimed. “I’ma feel like that forever. You don’t say you’re the best and then one day you’re like, ‘Okay I’m not the best no more.’ [You should feel that way] until you retire.”
In this dynamic episode of hip-hop communications, Jacquees’ journey from asserting royalty to confronting internet critique provides insight into the complex interplay of confidence and perception in the urban music realm.
