The beef between Pusha-T and Drake might finally be slowing down, but all of the credit has to go to James Prince (aka J. Prince).

Following Pusha’s “The Story of Adidon”, Drake had a whole new diss track ready to be released that also took shots at Kanye West. Supposedly Prince stepped in, had a phone call with the “God’s Plan” rapper, and told him to calm it down a bit. Prince said about the diss track: “I know for a fact that it would have been bad for Kanye and my man. It just wouldn’t be good. It’s beyond music at that point”.

With all things considered, here’s 5 Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About J. Prince.

1. J Prince Is The CEO Of One Of Rap’s Oldest Record Labels

Way back in 1986, J. Prince decided to found Rap-A-Lot Records. In doing so, he put southern hip-hop on the map, with The Geto Boys being the label’s biggest act. Since then, they have focused on signing similar artists, branching out to gangsta rap acts as well. Currently, Rap-A-Lot has signed Bun B, Scarface, Turk, Z-Ro and Tre Stanley. They’re one of the oldest labels still active, and certainly one of the most iconic.
