J. Prince continued his media tour with a stop at Billboard magazine.
In the interview, Prince again took responsibility for deading the Drake-Push T beef by convincing Drake not to respond to Push even though Drizzy allegedly has a devastating retort. Prince also showed the interviewer a threat he got for intervening in the situation.
Whenever disrespect is fertilized, it can always go there. When mother, father, and others are disrespected, it can always go there. I just got a text on my phone from somebody with a threat about staying away from Pusha-T. 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.” [J Prince scrolls through his phone and shows a text message from a number that isn’t saved as a contact.]
These are real-life situations we have to deal with. 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.
Prince has criticized Push for the way he went after Drake, so perhaps that's why Prince got that threat.
What do you think? Is Prince just trying to do too much here? He does have a book (Art & Science of Respect: A Memoir by James Prince, dropping June 22) to sell.
