J Prince is speaking out following the fatal shooting of Migos rapper, Takeoff.
On Thursday, J Prince shared a heartfelt Instagram post to show his respects and to set the record straight.
“The Prince family would like to send our condolences to the family and friends of a beautiful soul, @yrntakeoff. To Houstonians and families around the world, this one breaks my heart because Takeoff was a brother, a son, a role model, and a God-loving human being,” he wrote.
“I’ve been knowing Takeoff, Quavo, and Offset for many years, and there has been nothing but mutual love for one another, and that ain’t going to ever change where we are concerned. This shouldn’t have happened. This shouldn’t have ever happened in our city. This shouldn’t have been recorded, and this damn sure shouldn’t be circulating across social media for family, friends, and fans to see.”
The post continued: “As I write this, I’m angry about the lack of love and respect we have for one another as a race which keeps bringing us back to the same tragic place of black-on-black killing. They say satan is the author of confusion, and right now, there are a lot of lies and false narratives being spread by media whores. I consider myself a man that’s quick to listen and slow to speak, therefore to whoever is responsible for putting that bullet in my little nephew’s head, let it be known that you can’t hide behind me, beside me, or anywhere near me because I don’t tolerate dumb shit. I speak these words, not knowing whose bullet is responsible for his death. With that being said, the root of this tragedy is foolish and has to be owned by the fool. I will sum this up by saying a gun in the hands of any human that close his eyes to shoot and doesn’t have the proper skills to operate that gun is dangerous, and the results usually end with innocent people who had nothing to do with the altercation being shot or killed.”
Prince ended the post by informing Takeoff’s fans and peers to take on the challenge of “changing the narrative in our culture by putting an end to every argument or disagreement resulting in violence.”
Rest In Peace, Takeoff.
