Things have remained quiet over at camp OVO a week after Pusha-T dropped Drake diss track "The Story of Adidon," despite calls for a Drake clapback. Now, word comes that the beef has been halted temporarily (if not for good) thanks to Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J. Prince, who apparently helped prevent the Toronto rapper from releasing what he called an "overwhelming" diss track aimed at both Pusha-T and Kanye West.

Speaking with Sway in the Morning this weekend, Prince explained, “After speaking with Kanye, I spoke with the brother, and he didn’t want this. 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,” adding, “And definitely would’ve hurt families and we’re not in it for that. That’s not Drake’s character to tear a man down to that extent.” Watch the full interview below.

In another interview with DTLR Radio on Saturday, Prince admitted that he’d told Drake not to respond to King Push’s latest provocation.

"I spoke with Drake," Prince said. “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.'” He continued, "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."

"We ain't work this hard to cheat ourselves," he added. “So that's the way that is."

In yet another radio interview with WPGC 95.5, Prince called Pusha's track "disrespectful," referencing his own book The Art & Science of Respect. He argued, "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."

Prince is considered to be a mentor to Drake after his son Jas discovered the Toronto rapper via MySpace. This led to Drake meeting Lil Wayne and the Cash Money Records team, and the rest is history.

Prince himself is no stranger to rap beefs, especially those involving Drake. In 2015, Prince defended the rapper on what he called a "Courtesy Call," which called out Diddy, Suge Knight, Lil Wayne, and Birdman. In particular, it referenced an incident outside a Miami nightclub in which Diddy allegedly punched Drake.

For those interested, we've broken down the full history of the Pusha-T vs. Drake beef here.
