J. Prince defended his son J. Prince Jr., following claims that he neglected Takeoff’s lifeless body.
On Monday, the Rap-A-Lot founder sat down with the “Given Them The Business” podcast and discussed what happened the night the Migos rapper was killed.
At the time, many people called out J. Prince Jr. after a video circulated of him walking past Takeoff’s body after he was shot. However, his father has come forward in his defense to explain what really happened.
“You know one of the biggest lies that was told. He walked by Takeoff body as if he was heartless and didn’t care,” J. Prince said. “And in reality, Junior, my cousin Michael that’s here with me, they was there with Takeoff from the beginning to the end. Even when they walked by, they took three seconds of an hour and some situation when Mike and Junior was walking by.”
He added, “He actually went in the restroom to wash blood off his hands [from] when he had reached up under Takeoff head to pick him up and his fingers went in it.”
Since the fatal November night, several people have blamed the Prince family for the rapper’s death. The family even received some backlash for holding a memorial for Takeoff following his shooting.
“You would’ve thought J Prince Jr died but no…. This entire memorial is BS,” one Twitter user wrote.
Nevertheless, Prince extended his condolences to Takeoff’s family and demanded the killer be found and charged.
