J. Prince Receives Threatening Text Saying Stay Away From Pusha T
Since the release of Pusha T's "The Story Of Adidon", Rap-A-Lot founder J. Prince has been the sole voice speaking on the feud from Drake's camp. And now it seems that Prince has received a threatening text message on his phone containing familiar addresses. Here's what he told Billboard regarding the threatening text:
“I just got a text on my phone from somebody with a threat about staying away from Pusha T,” he said. “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.'”
Although Prince recognized the addresses, the number that the text came from was not in his contact list. He went on to elaborate in his usual captivating style:
“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.”
When Prince was asked if this was the first threat he has received over the Drake vs Pusha-T beef, he responded with this:
“This is the first one, but it’s definitely on my phone,” he said. “Of course, people talk loosely, but a pair of lips will say anything … Your people that surround you are going to come together. Somebody want 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 life.”
Prince has been the main figure since the beef popped off, first telling Drake not to respond to "The Story Of Adidon." And in later interviews, he has claimed Kanye West wanted to squash the beef out the gates. Prince's perspective of Drake's lack of a response has been about not getting into the "pigpen with pigs."
