Rub! Old School and New School R&B had some words on Wednesday night. Tank and Yung Bleu shared Instagram posts targeting each other on Instagram after Tank comments on a re-post named Bleu as the new king of R&B.
Tanks seem to throw shade in our room
Twitter user @SourpowerDre wrote: “Yung Bleu could be this new R&B King just making bangs.”
Yung Bleu retweeted the kind words and The Shade Room retweeted the comment to our official Instagram account. Shortly after, Tank shared his thoughts on the compliment in the comments section of TSR.
“I’m glad I’m from a different generation because you guys are so wild,” Tank wrote along with three smiley emojis.
Yung Bleu reacts to Tank’s Jokey
Despite Tank’s emojis, Bleu seems to have leaned toward his comment. The artist who blew up Tank– even shared a screenshot of the text string.
“Another episode of the bitter old ni *** s. Tank u still waiting for that sentence, that’s why you go crazy,” said Yung Bleu. “You have to be an OG! U commented on the shade room works like a lady. “
In the screenshot, there are four messages coming from Tank and none from Bleu. The first text appears to be a shared audio file with some fire emojis. Tank’s second message on January 12 inquired about Bleu’s receipt of the audio file. A few days later, his third text message came in saying, “Just sign up mate, do you understand?” Tank’s final message is displayed in partial view.
“My boy is fine if you don’t want to do the record. I sent you the log in response to you saying let’s get something done,” Tank wrote on Jan. 20. In any case, it’s always good to announce the good or the bad…”
In the post’s caption, Bleu also made it clear that he has no interest in being king.
“Don’t worry, I don’t care about being labeled the king of R&B. I’m about to be a real Superstar! I’m not telling you guys that I’m in my own world,” Bleu said. “I felt your weird energy, that’s why I recorded that wack a*s song.”
Tank said no beef
Soon after, Tank responded to Bleu’s comment with a short video. He begins by explaining that he doesn’t have beef with anyone, “especially Yung Bleu.” The artist also says he’s “proud” of Bleu. Tank says the text cut out in the screenshot is him encouraging Bleu to express his feelings.
“If we have to get down and do something, we put our word on something that we’re going to get done, then do it,” says Tank. “And if you don’t want to do that, that’s fine too. There’s no lost love in it. “
Tank ended his video by mentioning how new generations use the titles of king and queen in music.
“And this generation throws kings and queens around like you don’t have to earn it,” says Tank. “How many years and how much success do you take to achieve the title of king or queen. Do you know how long Mary J. Blige worked? You know how long R. Kelly worked? Do you understand how long Usher worked to get those titles? Chris Brown? You know what, I’m done. ”
Yung Bleu Compare stats
After Tank’s video, Yung Bleu decided to dig up some receipts. He posted and deleted an article highlighting Tank scoring his first platinum record in 2018. In the caption, Bleu said he had earned seven discs in two years, while one was white. Tank’s needle took twenty years.
“…I have never done anything but give your flowers, just answer me one thing,” Bleu wrote. “See that I have more records than you and sell more records. What makes you more legendary than me? Well-timed? Give it time! ”
Bleu also commented on his pen game that he can create valuable records as vocal artists.
“What a talented Ima! I can be a legend in my own generation just like you are,” said Bleu. “All of these songs are 100% written by me. NO help “except the worst!” All I’m saying! But it’s not beef, I wish you nun but bless the legend but that doesn’t mean ima stop tryna is also one. “
