I want to take this time to clarify my message to the people I tagged on my previous post. @funkflex @mysonnenygeneral @fredthegodsonmusic @ounp1523 @artisthbtl @iamcardib @hocus45th @corygunz174 @fatjoe @therealswizzz @remyma Let me make myself clear. I was never asking any of y’all for help in any capacity. I don’t need you, I don’t know you, or trust any of y’all to do anything concerning the streets for me. With that being said I witnessed a clown campaigning, bragging, and snitching on himself on a public video about robbing industry people in your backyard so I took it upon myself to alert the ones I have respect for. It is clear to me that went over some of y’all heads. Just for more clarity Ive been having ties in the Bronx and throughout New York for a long time and now it’s gotten even stronger with my youngstas. So don’t give any of the people I tagged credit for what others earn because they all strangers to me other than music. To all of you so called gangster clowns there’s a time and a place for everything and I’m going to give you what you ask for. To all of you that’s trying to narrow down my message to me wanting a chain lacks the depth of understanding that real street niggas have. That’s why you are all squares. There’s a movement taking place by the timid and the weak that wants to change the meaning of strong to weak and the meaning of weak to strong. My track record speaks for itself so I won’t lip wrestle with punks. I notice a lot of young men on the east coast that like to invite men to suck on their private parts then call themselves gangsters but real men don’t invite other men to suck their dicks unless they’re gay. I guess if the man you’re asking to suck on you say “ok” you’re gonna get naked? Now that you know better hopefully you punk ass niggas will do better. Or maybe it feels good being a punk ass nigga?
This week, New York rapper Mysonne responded to Jay’s boss reaching out to him in an effort to find his artist’s attacker.

First of all I want to state that I dont condone this type of juvenile behavior! Neither I nor any one affiliated with me conducts themselves in this manner ! With that being said I respect @jprincerespect for what you have done for the culture and the way you have been A1 from day one, But I myself have conducted myself in a manner which demands a certain level of respect and consideration and the message you relayed on your instagram post was inappropriate. Had you or mutual friends or acquaintances of ours reached out me thru Dm or phone I would have seen fit to reach out to anyone needed to right this wrong , on the premise of mutual respect and Admiration but as a result of this msg I have cowards on my page telling me "I better get that chain back" etc..The way your msg was delivered can be interpreted as more of a threat than a call out to allies to resolve a potential Catastrophic situation. These are kids who are not in my direct circle, and your msg puts me and what I represent in jeopardy. I want to believe that you meant it in all love and respect king, but unfortunately Social media was not the correct place to seek a solution to this problem, but on the contrary it may have done more harm. Please king utilize your Dm or use our mutual friends to connect with me and let's connect and Attempt to unite and fix all miscommunication. Respectfully Mysonne

Mob Ties Call To My Real Street Niggas Around The World But Especially On The East Coast In The Bronx. There’s A Clown By The Name Of Zae And His Crew Who Want To Become Famous By Bragging About Robbing Rap Industry Niggas. They Recently Bragged About Robbing The Artist YBN Almighty Jay Whom I’m Invested In. They’ve Robbed Him Of His Money And Jewelry Including A Rap-A-Lot Piece. So Therefore They Have Robbed A Piece Of Me. This Is A Perfect Opportunity To Execute Our Unity Where We Don’t Allow Moment Thinkers To Muddy The Water Over The Movement. With That Being Said To The Homies In The Bronx If Any Of These Clowns Are Yall’s Family Or Friends Speak Now So We Can Get An Understanding. To Ignore This Is A Recipe For Disaster. Other Than That It’s These Clowns Vs The Realest Niggas In Every Hood Around The World And That’s The Meaning Of Mob Ties. @funkflex @mysonnenygeneral @Fredthegodsonmusic @ounp1523 @artisthbtl @iamcardib @hocus45th @corygunz174 @fatjoe @therealswizzz @remyma
Over the weekend, disturbing post-attack pics surfaced online and revealed the seriousness behind YBN’s assault.
Heading into last weekend, reports emerged about YBN’s attack.
YBN Almighty Jay was apparently jumped and robbed while in New York City on Friday night. The video of the attack surfaced early Saturday morning and quickly went viral. In the video, Almighty Jay is seen running from his attackers but getting caught more than once. The men repeatedly kicked him and were seen trying to snatch his chain and empty his pockets in the process. Although it has yet to be confirmed, there is speculation that this stems from an earlier altercation YBN Almighty Jay was involved in while in NYC. (VLAD TV)
