On Tuesday night, the Rap-a-Lot Records CEO shared a video message directed at his longtime foe Birdman. For those who don’t know, J. Prince claims his son, Jas Prince, had discovered Drake about a decade ago and was responsible for bringing the Toronto rapper to Birdman’s label; however, the Prince family says Jas was never properly compensated for reeling in the hip-hop superstar.
Though this dispute led to a lawsuit that was eventually settled out of court, J. Prince is still seemingly upset about the whole situation, so much so that he felt he had to give Birdman a brief lesson about respect and the laws of karma.
I always had respect for the two brothers Ronald and Bryan Williams hustle because anyone who is successful in this music business earns the respect. I’m glad to have been an inspiration to them, but you witnessed the words that came out of his mouth. And I quote, "His family is my family. You gotta understand thats where Drake come into play. That came from J. Nobody knows that" – – – The J that really deserves that RESPECT and to be PAID is my son @Jas.Prince he discovered @ChampagnePapi – – – I’ve never been a man to use the word "Family" loosely because I believe life and death is in the power of the tongue. I also walk in great respect for the universal laws, one being cause and effect, simply meaning you reap what you sow. – – – With that being said, I say to this man they call "@Birdman5star" don’t forget you have children and I know you wouldn't want them to reap the seeds you have sewn by doing bad business. – – – This is the truth raw and uncut. This is how you earn "Respect" on your name. – – – If you can relate to this truth. Mention @Birdman5star and post #RealTalk
