Beyoncé and JAY-Z might be behind the biggest flex in music history. You know that picture of Blue Ivy drinking out of her own Grammy while wearing a crown on her head? Yeah, that could be Biggie's iconic "King Of New York" crown worth almost $600,000.

On Sunday, Blue Ivy, Bey and JAY's nine-year-old daughter, became a Grammy Award winner when Beyoncé’s visual for "Brown Skin Girl" snagged the award for Best Music Video. This marked her first-ever Grammy win and a place in the history books as the second youngest person to take home the trophy.

While Blue wasn’t present at the actual ceremony, Beyoncé shared a highlight reel on Instagram in celebration of their record-breaking wins. The video — a collection of Grammy snaps — included one photo of Blue using her Grammy Award as a cup and rocking a crown that uncannily resembles a crown that The Notorious B.I.G. famously wore and was recently sold at auction.

The “King of New York” crown that the Notorious B.I.G. wore during his last recorded photo shoot sold for $594,750 at Sotheby’s hip hop auction back in September. And this image of Blue has many speculating that Hov and Bey were actually behind the purchase. With the Carters, it's safe to assume we're not dealing with a replica.

Many fans also recalled the picture's reference to JAY-Z's acceptance speech following his Grammy win for the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration back in 2014. “I want to tell Blue, ‘Daddy got a gold sippy cup for you,’” JAY said at the time.
