Bronx, NY – J. Prince ruffled a few feathers when he put out an Instagram APB to Bronx-bred industry folks in an effort to gather intel on YBN Almighty Jay’s assault. Mysonne, in particular, was vocal on social media about how wrong Prince’s approach appeared to him.
But in another Instagram post, the Rap-A-Lot Records founder clarified his original statements and insisted he doesn’t need anyone’s help in tracking down the people responsible for the crime.
“Let me make myself clear,” he began. “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.”
During the attack, Almighty Jay’s Rap-A-Lot chain was snatched off his neck. Prince accused aspiring rapper Zae Numbafive and fellow members of his Jack Boyz crew of stealing it. Shortly after, Zae released a video clip of himself holding what appeared to be the chain, seemingly taunting Prince.
Prince says the situation is much more complex and isn’t simply about a chain. He also chastised young rappers for inviting other men to “suck their dicks.”
“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,” he continued. “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?”
Following the incident, Almighty Jay required a hospital visit and 300 stitches in his face. The investigation is ongoing.
