After Pusha T released “The Story of Adidon,” where he exposed Drake as a deadbeat father, discussed the rapper’s family issues and his friend’s health, J. Prince made a judgment call to diffuse the situation before it went too far.
In fact, in his attempt to end the dispute, J. Prince revealed that he made an “OG call” to the Canadian rapper to stand down in the rap beef and put the issue to bed. However, he also used the opportunity to condemn Pusha for his lyrical low blows.
“A man to attack a man’s mother, father, a man who’s dying – I feel that’s disrespectful. If you wanna leave it on a level playing field – I get at you, you get at me, then bring it on, let the best man win. Imagine we got into a fight and I go whip your mama ass, I hit your daddy in the jaw …I call it a pigpen mentality.”
Prince made a similar statement on several other platforms, as he continued his media tour to promote his forthcoming book. However, it appears the public discussion about the beef has rubbed a few people the wrong way.
“I just got a text on my phone from somebody with a threat about staying away from Pusha T,” Prince revealed in a new interview with Billboard. “I don’t know where it came from, but I see addresses [of people I know]. ‘Keep his name out of your mouth, or else.”
“These are real-life situations we have to deal with,” Prince continued. “I understand where it can go, and I’m trying to circumvent it. But by the same token, I’m really the wrong person to be trying to go there with. I understand it, and I’m in a position to try to put an end to it. But the devil don’t even like peace. Believe it or not, he sees you going through peace, and he don’t want it. That means nothing. But this decision, we’re standing by it, and we’re going to move along to do good business.”
“Of course, people talk loosely, but a pair of lips will say anything,” Prince said. “Your people that surround you are going to come together. Somebody wants stripes. Somebody want to get brownie points. When you don’t put these kind of fires to bed, that fire turns into a blaze or explosion, and there it is. That’s real.”
