In an unexpected turn of events, J. Prince has stepped in to address the feud between NBA Youngboy and Drake. During a meeting arranged by Birdman, tensions were high as Youngboy referred to Drake as his “enemy.” This surprising development adds another layer to the ongoing dispute between Youngboy and Lil Durk, leading to speculation about a potential album showdown.
Youngboy released a track titled “F**k The Industry Pt. 2,” where he didn’t hold back in expressing his feelings towards various individuals, including Drake, who is regarded as Lil Wayne’s protegé. The lyrics of the song shed light on a FaceTime conversation between Youngboy and Drake, where the latter expressed his admiration for Durk but mentioned his inability to collaborate with Youngboy. This revelation clearly hit a nerve with Youngboy, as he vehemently declared Drake as his enemy: “So when we cross our ways, fuck what you say, bitch, you my enemy.”
YB also rapped on the song, “Talked to Drake ‘cross FaceTime, he wasn’t feelin’ me/ Told me that he fuck with Durk, damn, that shit gettin’ to me/ Told me that he like the shit I’m doin’, but can’t do shit with me/ So when we cross our ways, fuck what you say, bitch, you my enemy.”
This situation prompted J. Prince to intervene. Birdman facilitated a meeting in Utah, bringing together the Rap-A-Lot boss and Youngboy, allowing them to address their differences. J. Prince took to social media to share the outcome of the meeting, stating, “On behalf of the lil Homie YB, me and my brother Birdman were able to have a real conversation face to face. We talked about the past, the present, and the future. But most importantly, we left each other with a mutual respect moving forward.”
J. Prince: Drake Is Like A Son
J. Prince clarified that his intention was not to meet with Birdman but felt compelled to address Youngboy’s track, “F**k The Industry Pt. 2.” He publicly reiterated the bond between Drake and himself, emphasizing that Drake is like a son to him and part of his inner circle. J. Prince advised Youngboy to remove Drake from his list of enemies, emphasizing that they have nothing but love and admiration for Durk and his accomplishments. The purpose of the FaceTime call was to encourage both artists to move forward, not backward.
“To the lil homie, as I said to you privately, I say to you publicly that Drake is my son, he roll with me,” he added. “Therefore, I think it’s a good idea to take him off your enemy list because the truth of the matter is that we got nothing but love for Durk and your accomplishments. When I put Drake on that facetime call with you, my intent was for y’all to move forward, not backwards.”

Past exchanges of words between NBA Youngboy and J. Prince have contributed to their strained relationship, primarily stemming from Prince’s public involvement in retrieving Youngboy’s stolen car keys. In response, Youngboy chastised Prince for sharing an Instagram post related to the matter. Youngboy made it clear that he had no interest in the keys and dismissed Prince’s actions, stating, “I’m good on them keys, gangsta. When you buy that shit cash, two keys come with the car anyways. Mind your fuckin’ business, mane.”
With the recent meeting taking place, it is hopeful that NBA Youngboy and J. Prince can maintain peace between them moving forward.
