The “Worth It” singer hopped on his Instagram Story this week to show off the new ink he got on the side of his right leg of a chain with the logos attached as pendants.
If that wasn’t enough, YK also shared a post declaring Usher the king of R&B, with a picture of the singer performing on stage. In another Story, YK gave an explanation to his fans about the conversations he was with “legends” — presumably Drake and Usher — about “success.”
“When you get to seat at the same table with legends, and they talk to you about success, you will understand,” YK wrote.

Drake’s relationship with the 24-year-old singer goes back to last year when he was losing money in bets to everyone including the 6 God who made him perform in his house to settle the debt.
With Usher, YK Osiris stands firm on his belief that he’s the true king of R&B. During a recent conversation with VladTV, YK gave the Atlanta native the title over R. Kelly.
“I love Usher,” YK said. “R. Kelly, he’s one of the greatest. I like Usher. It’s just certain things like R. Kelly is fire, but there’s just certain things that turns me off a little bit. Like you can be great all you want to, it just certain things you gotta uphold. It’s cool; I just love Usher. Usher is that n-gga. R. Kelly, I don’t know, did a lot of things that just doesn’t make sense.”
Usher had deflected the title for awhile until finally accepting it last month during a conversation with Bevy Smith on her show Bevelations.
“I mean, you call me that, I’ll definitely carry it,” said Usher. “I’m a tilt my crown knowing that I’m standing on the shoulders of all of the icons of our time. It is Michael [Jackson] that I stand on the shoulders of, it is James Brown that I stand on the shoulders of, it is Ronald Isley I stand on the shoulders of, it is Luther Vandross, it is Barry White, it is Teddy Pendergrass.”
He continued: “It is all of these incredible artists like Marvin Gaye that will never be forgotten as long as there’s a breath in my body to breathe. It’s all of them. And as a result of that, yeah, you wanna give me that crown, you tell me who gon’ do it better.”
