UPDATE: Pusha T is also saying the beef is over, following “conversations.” Okay.
What a different world we’re in in regards to Hip-Hop battles. Following Pusha T‘s “The Story of Adidon” (which was in itself a reply to Drake‘s “Duppy Freestyle“), Rap-A-Lot head honcho and southern Rap pioneer J. Prince has declared the battle to be over.
Currently on a press run for his new memoir, The Art and Science of Respect, Prince sat down with Sways Universe, The Breakfast Club and Desus & Mero (along with others, I’m sure) to speak on how the mentioned battle crossed lines and was headed the way of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.:
I definitely feel like it crossed the line where music was concerned; the disrespect for his mother, the disrespect for his father, for 40 — a man that’s dying — I know these people so I felt like that was totally disrespectful. After even speaking with Kanye because I spoke with the brother and he didn’t want this and I saw this going to a place that I feel would’ve ended his career if Drake would’ve put out the 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.
Other news stories also state that the now-vaulted diss track was more so a destroyer for G.O.O.D. Music boss Kanye West…unfortunately, we may never know.
I’ve never been about beef I’m about love lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone so this is dead now
