Speaking with RapUpTV, Prince said that he didn’t like the track and he felt it was disrespectful.
“…I saw a desperate person. A desperate person that was willing to do whatever and say whatever to win,” he said. “I understand where he’s coming from. I understand that mentality. I dealt with it all my life. That’s why I had enough sense to pull the plug on the situation.”
In the interview, the Houston-based CEO also talked about how he didn’t want Drake to get sidetracked by Pusha’s track.
“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 explained. “Because it’s easy to go there and things fall apart.”
“I didn’t tell him to not release the record he had recorded because I don’t know if he had recorded it or not, but what I was familiar with was the ingredients that was gonna be in the record,” Prince continued. “I definitely told him pull the plug on that. We’re not finna get in the pigpen and wallow in slop when you’re a big picture thinker and you have a movement going such as Drake.”
Drake’s latest album, Scorpion, has been well-received. The project has been streamed a billion times in a week since its release.
