J. Prince believes that Drake and Pusha T are not on same level and if the Toronto rapper allowed Pusha’s diss to sidetrack him, it could have devastating effects on his career.
Recall that right after Pusha dropped the The Story of Adidon diss in which he made lyrical jab at Drake’s mum and dad and accused him of abandoning his son, many people expected Drake to respond but J. Prince stepped in and said it was not worth it.
Now, sitting down with RapUpTV this week, Prince gave some more context and noted that the bigger picture of Drake’s career wasn’t worth getting sidetracked by something so “trivial” as Pusha’s diss.
“When you are a big picture thinker and you have a movement going such as Drake—he has so many moving parts where his career is concerned—then you don’t allow a moment like a Pusha T where somebody is being real disrespectful towards your mother, father, your friend, you don’t allow something so trivial to stop a big movement,” Prince noted. “Because it’s easy to go there and things fall apart.”
And his advice worked, because Drake is currently winning since his album Scorpion dropped; he became the first artist to reach one billion streams in one week, his album Scorpion is now dominating the Billboard Hot 100, and he has seven songs charting in the Top 10 simultaneously- a feat that has now broken the Beatles’ 1964 record of charting five songs in the Top 10 at once.
And so many other records. Click here to read the report.
