Hocus 45th responded that he respects Prince, but he went about this the wrong way.
The violent attack against rapper YBN Almighty Jay has sparked J. Prince to call on hip hop heavyweights to step up to the plate. The record executive made a declaration on social media, claiming that he has the inside scoop on who robbed YBN Almighty Jay this past weekend. News broke that the 19-year-old rapper was jumped on the streets of New York City by a mob who stole his signature chain. Because the thieves stole a Rap-A-Lot item of jewelry, Prince, the CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records, takes the robbery personally.
"Mob Ties Call To My Real Street N***as Around The World But Especially On The East Coast In The Bronx," Prince wrote on Instagram. "There’s A Clown By The Name Of Zae And His Crew Who Want To Become Famous By Bragging About Robbing Rap Industry N***as. They Recently Bragged About Robbing The Artist YBN Almighty Jay Whom I’m Invested In. They’ve Robbed Him Of His Money And Jewelry Including A Rap-A-Lot Piece. So Therefore They Have Robbed A Piece Of Me."
"This Is A Perfect Opportunity To Execute Our Unity Where We Don’t Allow Moment Thinkers To Muddy The Water Over The Movement," Prince continued. "With That Being Said To The Homies In The Bronx If Any Of These Clowns Are Yall’s Family Or Friends Speak Now So We Can Get An Understanding. To Ignore This Is A Recipe For Disaster. Other Than That It’s These Clowns Vs The Realest N***as In Every Hood Around The World And That’s The Meaning Of Mob Ties."
Prince went on to tag a few fellow artists including Cardi B, Funkmaster Flex, Fat Joe, Swizz Beatz, Remy Ma, A Boogie With Da Hoodie, Fred The Godson, and Hocus 45th. The only person to respond as of yet is Hocus 45th, who posted a screenshot of Prince's message on his Instagram and wrote a lengthy caption that stated he respects Prince but he didn't appreciate having his named tagged and associated with a robbery or public threat.
"First I wanna start by saying I respect everything you did for the culture and I respect you as a god father of hip hop and of the streets @jprincerespect," 45th wrote. "Your name has always been A1 in these streets... and I tilt my hat to you for that, but Since you said to ignore this is a recipe for disaster and I was tagged in your post I have to tell you that I'm SEX MONEY MURDER my n***a and we don't give it up like this. I don't do this internet s**t. My brothers blew trial in the feds because they used our music and social media. I beat trial facing life in Prison!"
"IDK who told you to tag me but I'm a street n***a for real," 45th continued. "Had you hit me up personally through DM or by other means privately I would have made some calls to see what I could do because I respect u as a real OG but you went to social media and even said the person name who allegedly robbed him🤷♂️... I don't want my name publicly attached to a public robbery.. the FEDS have my picture at the top of a pyramid on a blackboard my n***a!...The Bronx is my hometown and my hometown has been good to me! You really expect us to just flip on our Borough?"
"N***as get robbed everyday B🤷♂️...I respect ya s***t but your approach wasn't right on this OG...To all the youth out here stop recording yourselves doing s**t like this... this social media s**t will bring you down... they are using this against us in a court of law!!! Take it from somebody who been there.. I was fortunate to beat trial but not everybody get that lucky."
Meanwhile, those responsible for robbing YBN Almighty surfaced online, showing off the chain and suggesting that they're trying to sell it back to his ex-girlfriend, Blac Chyna.
