James Prince aka J Prince is best known for being the CEO of Rap-a-Lot Records. He (and his son Jas Prince) discovered Drake. Since Drake has become a huge star, people in the industry have been trying to get their hands on Drake, literally. In December, Diddy allegedly punched Drake in a nightclub. As executive producer of Drake’s albums, J Prince felt the need to defend his client. So he gave Diddy – and Birdman, Suge Knight, Lil Wayne – what he calls a “Courtesy Call.” Another way to describe it might be a warning. To drive the message home, he made a track available for everyone in the industry to hear.
It’s not the first time J Prince has made a Courtesy Call. In June 2014, he told the hosts of Breakfast Club Power 105.1 that he gave one to Charlemagne, to warn him about messing with Prince’s money. Prince explained: “When one is on your feet, you extend a courtesy call, see. ‘You’re standing on my feet, would you please move?’” said Prince.
