J. Prince made that OG call to Drake in order to squash the beef with Pusha T. Although he’s made it clear that he doesn’t want to see the scenario escalate, he revealed to Billboard that the second someone disrespects someone else’s family, it could get to a bad place. He also revealed to the interviewer, William E. Ketchum III, that he just received a threatening text that read, “Keep Pusha T’s name out of your mouth.”
“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.'” He said before showing Ketchum the text. “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.”
However, Prince doesn’t seem to concerned about it. He said that it’s the first threat he’s received about the situation.
“Of course, people talk loosely, but a pair of lips will say anything.… Your people that surround you are going to come together.” He explained. “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.”
Ketchum elaborated further on the text messages on Twitter and reiterated that J. Prince didn’t know who the number was from or if the person even had any connection to Pusha T. Either way, it’s a ballsy move to be playing with J. Prince like that.
