Move over Jay-Z. New York City has a new self-proclaimed king.
Chiraq spitter Lil Bibby dubbed himself the King of New York during a recent performance in the Big Apple.
“I’m the King Of New York,” Bibby wrote on Twitter.
Bibby’s NYC performance proved to be a surreal experience for him. Bibby was photoed gazing upon the crowd and captioned his IG post, “From the Chi all the way to NY.”
But Bibby’s proclamation made a few New Yorkers feel some kind of way, including Hot 97’s Ebro.
Ebro jokingly replied, “trolling! Hahaa”
Bibby soon changed his tune and acknowledged Jay-Z as the King.
“…Lol. We both know Hov is king,” he said.
Ebro then replied he liked Bibby.
New York City has become Hip Hop’s new punching bag, which is kind of ironic given NYC’s status as the birthplace of the popular genre.
Kendrick Lamar was the first outsider to stick his flag in NYC during a fiery verse in Big Sean’s “Control.”
“I’m Makaveli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York/King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both,” he raps.
Trinidad James also sparked controversy in November 2011 for blasphemous remarks made against NY after saying Atlanta runs NYC Hip Hop during a performance at Converse’s Rubber Tracks studios.
Bibby is known to occasionally spout a bit of arrogance about his lyrical craft.
The “Water” rapper once put himself on the level of Tupac, Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z.
“Next time you mention Pac, Hova or Biggie don’t forget that n---- Lil Bibby,” he wrote.
Bibby also sparked a discussion after declaring himself the hardest in the rap game after quoting a line from Kendrick Lamar’s “B----, Don’t Kill My Vibe.”
“Name 1 n---- out there harder than him. I’ll wait…” Bibby wrote.
Bibby is currently prepping the release of his “The Book” EP. The project is slated to drop soon.
