J.Prince: Drake has a diss track against Pusha T and Kanye that would ruin his career

Hip hop mogul J. (James) Prince revealed that Drake is sitting on a destructive diss track about Pusha T and Kanye West.

In an interview with radio personality Sway, Prince said that Drake has agreed to not drop the song.

"After speaking with Kanye, I spoke with the brother, and he didn’t want this," Prince told Sway. "I saw this going to a place that I feel would have ended his career if Drake would’ve put out this song that he had on him."

He added that it "definitely would’ve hurt families."

"That’s not Drake’s character to tear a man down to that extent," he further explained.

Prince said that it would have gone beyond a typical rap beef if the track came out.

"The ingredients was overwhelming," Prince said. "I know for a fact that it would have been bad for Kanye and my man."

He continued, "It’s beyond music at that point. It’s going to affect the livelihood. It’s going to interfere with his whole lifestyle from that moment."

Despite being questioned about whether or not the track would eventually come out, Prince maintained that the public wouldn't see it.

"I don’t think it would leak, because he gave his word," he said. "And me knowing Drake like I know him, he has a word."

News about this unheard Drake song comes after Pusha released diss track "The Story of Adidon" last week.

The single - which features artwork of the "Nice For What" rapper in blackface - claims that he used his secret child with a former porn star to sell a sneaker line.
