J. Prince Calls on Cardi B, A-Boogie, Fat Joe, Swizz Beatz & More Bronx Figures to Locate YBN Almighty Jay's Attackers
Update: On Thursday (March 14th) J. Prince posted another lengthy post on his Instagram, clarifying his previous message. In the post, he tagged the same people he tagged before. He wrote that he wasn't asking anyone for help. He said the reason he put up the post was because:
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," he said Thursday. "It is clear to me that went over some of y'all heads.
The person allegedly behind the robbery, Zae Numbafive, was taken into federal custody earlier this week in connection with the shooting of an off-duty New York Police Department cop. It also seems like the Rap-A-Lot founder was responding to Mysonne and Hocus 45th, two people who were originally tagged by Prince.
