The Rap-A-Lot Records CEO tells us Drake was, in fact, ready to respond to Pusha's "The Story of Adidon" before J Prince stepped in and told him to stand down. According to Prince, what Drake had "cocked and loaded" would've "ended" Kanye, and caused a lot of pain. He insists they're not in the business of destroying families ... which is why he told Drizzy to stand down.
J Prince also doubled down on not resorting to a "pig pen mentality," which he clearly believes Pusha did by attacking Drake's mom, dad, and terminally ill producer. He doesn't consider this an L for Drake either -- despite what fans might be saying.
Hard to say if Ye was getting ahead of a potential situation, but that's all moot now ... 'cause the beef is officially squashed. BTW, Prince's book, 'The Art and Science of Respect,' is out now and he talks about some other famous rap beefs, which didn't end well.
