J. Prince is hitting every media outlet he can so he can tell an ever-evolving tale about how he told Drake not to drop his Pusha T response because Drizzy's material would destroy Push and Kanye West.

In the latest iteration, which the Rap-A-Lot boss relayed to Ebro this morning, Prince explained that Kanye called him and asked him to call off Drake. Prince agreed in part because of his friendship with Houston producer Mike Dean, who's become Kanye's main man in the studio.

“This something Kanye didn’t want,” Prince said. “He called me. This is something he didn’t want. Before [he tweeted about it], he let me know, ‘I’m a family man. I don’t want this.’ So, with me, one of my guys named Mike Dean works with Kanye. With me analyzing the whole pie, I’m like, “Hey, why say these things that about to be said and destroy this man’s livelihood?”

Later in the interview, Prince admitted that he never heard the completed diss track that he told Drake not to release, rather just the ingredients. He also spoke about his relationship with Drake.

“Drake is like my adopted son,” Prince explained. “Of course, [his real son] Jas Prince brought him into Houston, discovered him. My son was on tour with Lil Wayne, and I called him one day. And I’m like, ‘Hey, I don’t want you out there hanging on tour like you a fan and come home with no money. Tell Wayne you wanna start a record label. You got $1 million, you wanna start the record label, you need a partner. He called me back. Wayne was in agreement with that.”

“I said, ‘Who’s your first artist? He mentioned Drake. Said, ‘Lemme hear him.’ He played me some things. I wasn’t feeling it. I wasn’t feeling Drake in the beginning. I’m like, ‘Man, you like this?’ He like, ‘Daddy, this is the new sound.’ I’m like, ‘Where he from?’ He said, ‘Canada.’ I’m like, ‘Aw, Canada.’ So, I called some homies from Canada to check and see if the buzz was real ’cause my son used the word buzz. I taught him about a buzz in Rap-A-Lot marketing meetings since he was [a child]. So, he got my attention with that lingo. And true enough, it was a real buzz. I said, ‘Let’s bring him in.'”

What do you think about all of that?
