Rap-A-Lot Records CEO, J Prince says he told the Young Money rapper not to stoop to Pusha’s level with a response because that’s not his character.
“For a man to attack a man’s mother, his father, a man that’s dying, I feel it’s disrespectful,” Prince tells DTLR Radio’s DJ Reddz and Fadam Got Da Juice on Saturday (June 2). “I call it a pig pen mentality. I spoke to Drake, I made an O.G. call to Drake this morning telling him, ‘I don’t want you to respond to this.’”

The revelation comes a few days after Kanye West declared the beef between Pusha T and Drake “dead.” “I’ve never been about beef,” tweeted Ye. “I’m about love lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone so this is dead now.”

In a follow up interview with Sway Calloway on Sway In The Morning, James Prince who’s out promoting his new book The Art & Science Of Respect claims Drake has recorded a response capable of ending both Kanye and Pusha T’s careers.
“The ingredients was overwhelming,” said Prince. “I know for a fact that it would have been bad for Kanye and [Pusha]. It just wouldn’t have been good. It’s beyond music at that point. It’s gonna effect the livelihood, it’s gonna interfere with his whole lifestyle from that day forward.”
Prince said he spoke with Kanye and they decided the best thing for both parties was not to release the track.
“After even speaking with Kanye, ’cause I spoke with the brother, and he didn’t want this. I saw it going in a place that I feel would have ended his career if Drake would have put out the song that he had on him. And definitely would have hurt families. We not in it for that. That’s not Drake’s character. We not in business to tear our brother, fellow man down to that extent.”
The Houston native says Push went too far by bringing up Drake’s family and sick producer Noah “40” Shebib on The Story Of Adidon.
