This king of R&B debate reached a new level of controversy this weekend when Jacquees ran up on Keith Sweat backstage at the V103 Winterfest in Atlanta and continued his tirade against the actual kings of R&B.
TMZ caught up with Keith after he performed at the R&B concert and asked his thought about the R&B king conversation when Jacquees decided to insert his two cents, interrupting sweat and declaring himself the king of “right now.”
Sweat’s face said it all as it literally looked like he was two seconds off Jacquees’ ass. The clip hit social media and it didn’t take long for #BlackTwitter to get a hold of it and read Jacquees his R&B rights.
Jacquees don't even got a hit of his own that's not a remix of someone elses hit and got the nerve to come for Keith Sweat. Child please.— Matthew A. Cherry (@MatthewACherry) December 17, 2018

Keith Sweat: I sold 30 million— Edward Bowser (@etbowser) December 17, 2018
Jacquees: I've been out two years!
Keith Sweat: The legends didn't debate who was the king
Jacquees: Cuz they didn't have Internet!
This is what happens when kings talk to court jesters
Y’all berated Ella Mai over a decision that was not hers and boosted up Jacquees’ ego to point where he is coming at Keith Sweat. THE Keith Sweat. Jacquees has no hits. Despicable https://t.co/n36hZwDh0a— Taylor (@BackTAYreality) December 17, 2018
