J. Prince and NBA YoungBoy had a public falling out this past summer after the Rap-A-Lot founder announced on Instagram that he helped retrieve the rapper’s stolen goods. YoungBoy expressed his displeasure with J. Prince making the news public, resulting in the two exchanging words through social media.
J. Prince explained his reasoning for publicly disclosing the information, during his interview on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning, and added that he and NBA YoungBoy have had a conversation since their disagreement.
“Since then, the lil homie reached out to me and we had a conversation,” Prince said 3:23 into the interview. “It was a disconnect, come to find out. I had spoke to his brother and I had an understanding and he told me he didn’t have the same understanding with his brother. We agreed to disagree. Ultimately, we agree and it’s all good. It’s all good moving forward. I think I said it best when I made a statement: I don’t wanna be his friend or his enemy, so it’s all good with me as of today.”
“I want them to learn and I want them to know,” Prince later explained when asked about his reason for addressing NBA YoungBoy publicly. “Publicly on the social media thing, there’s a new method of communicating with the young—and it’s important to communicate with the young, not only for myself but for others. I don’t like disconnects where beef is concerned. So when you see me speak public, normally it’s out of love. I’m trying to calm the storm before things take off in a different direction. That was my meaning behind it—just to let one know my position and where I stood.”
