Usher Declares Himself As The King of R&B After Diddy Says “R&B is muthaf–kin’ dead”[Video]

When the eight-time Grammy Award winner appeared on SiriusXM and Radio Andy’s “Bevelations,” he couldn’t help but brag about himself.

“King, whatever you wanna call it,” Usher told host Bevy Smith. “Yeah, I’ve been working to the point where I do own that, and I do deserve that.”

He added, “And I ain’t gonna ask for it no more. You’re gonna give it. Because I did work for it.”

Later in the interview, Usher refuted claims made earlier by Diddy that R&B was a dying genre.

“When I do hear people, even like Puff saying, ‘You know R&B is dead.’ He sounds nuts to me,” Usher said. “It sounds, it sounds, it sounds crazy.”

“You know, especially knowing he was a pioneer in understanding and beneficiary of it. You know, the source that is R&B created the breath of life that was breathed into hip-hop. It wouldn’t be,” he added.

“There would be no hip-hop if there were not R&B, so it’s blasphemous to hear me say, to hear people say anything, especially hip-hop cats, to say anything about R&B.”
Initially, Diddy told Timbaland during an Instagram Live last week that “R&B is muthaf–kin’ dead as of right now.”

“That’s what R&B is. R&B is timeless. It ain’t gonna go away,” Usher added.
