YK Osiris is showing a lot of love to Drake and Usher with a brand new tattoo he got of their respective logos — the letter “u” and the OVO owl.
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.
YK also got a Certified Lover Boy-inspired haircut that Drizzy himself roasted along with 21 Savage and Lil Yachty, and even lost badly to the Canadian in a pick-up game of basketball.
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.”
