J Prince: Pusha T Is Doing ‘Damage Control’ in Drake Beef

J Prince, the CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records, called Pusha T an “ant” in regard to the rapper’s beef with Drake. He said the beef is over and that rapper is doing press for “damage control,” according to TMZ.

“I don’t consider this a beef anymore,” the Houston native said. “Pusha he is like an ant to us…We could smash him anytime we choose to if that’s something we wanted to do. That’s not the case here, I [became] involved to put this to rest. As far as I’m concerned, it’s dead, but it’s strictly an act of damage control.”

J Prince, whose son Jas Prince is credited with discovering Drake, allegedly stepped in and told Drake to end the beef in June.

Pusha T and Drake have been dissing one another for years. The subliminal back-and-forth turned into direct shots after the release of Pusha’s album Daytona, on which he calls out Drake for allegedly using ghostwriters in the song “Infrared.”

Drake responded with “Duppy Freestyle” before the G.O.O.D Music rapper released “The Story of Adidon,” which revealed the news of the Toronto rapper’s secret child and cover art of him sporting Blackface.

The “In My Feelings” rapper remained quiet on details of the ordeal until last week on LeBron James’ roundtable series The Shop. Drake said he told Kanye West, who previously denied sharing the information, about his son and the troubles he was having with the child’s mother.

Pusha T then appeared on The Joe Budden Podcast, where he had a 3-hour discussion about the Drake beef and cleared West’s name. He revealed the source of the information to be a woman who is close with OVO 40, Drake’s friend and producer.

The “Santeria” rapper also told Joe Budden and crew he doesn’t know nor has he spoken to J Prince, who has a history of ending rap feuds.
