It's been nearly a week since Pusha T dropped the eviscerating "The Story of Adidon" taking aim at Drake. Drizzy is yet to offer up a response -- and a recent phone call he reportedly received may have pushed him to shy away from a reply. Over the weekend (June 2), Rap-A-Lot Records CEO and good friend of the 6 God, J. Prince, said he gave the OVO rapper a call and advised him to end his feud with King Push.

James' relationship with Drake spans back to when he first broke into the hip-hop industry and the two have remained good friends throughout the past decade. "I spoke with Drake. I made an OG call to Drake this morning, telling him, ‘I don’t want you to respond to this. We’re going to put this to bed,'" Prince told DTLR Radio on Saturday. 

The Houston-based mogul felt that Pusha's "The Story of Adidon" was disrespectful and took things too far with certain subjects. "We're going to put this to bed because we can't get into the pigpen with pigs. Because pigs turn into hogs and hogs get slaughtered," he continued.

In a previous interview (June 1) with WPGC 95.5, while promoting the upcoming release of his memoir, The Art and Science of RespectPrince expanded on his thoughts regarding Pusha's "The Story of Adidon" diss. "I think this guy is being disrespectful. My book is called 'The Art and Science of Respect,' so it's hard for me to not say he's being disrespectful," the entrepreneur said. "It's one thing for me and you to be in a situation and it's another thing for you to take it out on my momma or my dad. So I have a problem."
