It’s well known right now that J. Prince prevented the Drake and Pusha T/Kanye West beef from escalating any further.
He recently revealed that he made the call to Drake and made sure that the beef is dead. The reveal came shortly after Kanye tweeted that the beef is dead. However, J. Prince revealed that he made the call to Drake after Kanye West contacted him about it.
J. Prince joined Ebro on Hot 97 earlier today while promoting his upcoming book, The Art & Science Of Respect. He explained how it was actually Kanye West who contacted him first to end the beef before anything got further out of hand.
“This is something Kanye didn’t want. He called me so this is something he didn’t want,” J. Prince explained before revealing that ‘Ye called him before deading the beef on Twitter. “He let me know, ‘I’m a family man. I don’t want this’… With my analyzing the whole pie, I’m like, ‘Hey, why say these things that about to be said and destroy this this man’s livelihood? We not about that.”
Ebro asked him if Drake’s diss track featured Lil Wayne at all. J. Prince said he’s unsure about Wayne’s involvement in the diss track but he did reveal that Drake was ready to fire shots on his own and he was ready to aim at Kanye on the track. He admits he never heard the diss track but did confirm he heard Drake’s “ingredients.”
Although Drake had one up in the chamber, J. Prince made sure to end the beef. He said because he’s known Drake for so long, he knows that stooping to the levels of disrespect Pusha T went to on “The Story Of Adidon” wasn’t in Drizzy’s character.
