The Drake and Pusha T beef seems to be over. Last weekend, J Prince — who is the CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records — shared during an interview with DTLR Radio that he called Drizzy after Pusha T’s “Story of Adidon” was released and told the Toronto native to not respond.
In a new interview with Sway in the Morning, J Prince revealed he spoke to Kanye about the situation. He shares that Drake made a response to “Story of Adidon” but doesn’t want the song to be released because the rap beef will get too personal.
“After speaking with Kanye, I spoke with the brother…and he didn’t want this,” Prince shared. “I saw this going to a place that I feel would have ended his career if Drake would’ve put out this song that he had on him. It definitely would’ve hurt families and we’re not in it for that. That’s not Drake’s character to tear a man down to that extent.”
The hip-hop mogul says he enjoys a good rap battle but lines were crossed when family was name-dropped on diss songs. Pusha T sent shots at Drake’s family and the megastar’s alleged son in “The Story Adidon,” while Drake brought up Pusha T’s fiancee’s name in “Duppy Freestyle.”
“Oh no doubt about it… the ingredients were overwhelming. I know for a fact that it would’ve been bad for Kanye and my man [Pusha T],” said J Prince. “It wouldn’t have been good, it’s beyond music at that point. It’s gonna affect the livelihood, it’s gonna interfere with his entire lifestyle from that day forward.”
