During an appearance on the Givin Them The Business podcast shared on Monday (January 9), the music executive explained that the viral clip of his son walking by TakeOff was merely a small glimpse at what was really going on.
“You know one of the biggest lies that was told — he walked by TakeOff body as if he was heartless and didn’t care,” J. Prince said. “And in reality, Junior, my cousin Michael that’s here with me, they was there with TakeOff from the beginning to the end. Even when they walked by, they took three seconds of an hour and some situation when Mike and Junior was walking by.”
He continued: “He actually went in the restroom to wash blood off his hands [from] when he had reached up under TakeOff head to pick him up and his fingers went in it.”

Many people have been holding the Prince family responsible for TakeOff’s death, and there was a lot of pushback after J. Prince and his family held a memorial at the site where TakeOff was killed shortly after his passing.
Prince, who did not attend the funeral, erected a tribute to the late Migos rapper with hundreds of roses outside 810 Billiards and Bowling. Doves were also released in TakeOff’s honor.
“You would’ve thought J Prince Jr died but no…. This entire memorial is BS,” one user wrote on Twitter. Another tweeted: “J Prince should be ashamed of himself, why tf would you put y’all name in flowers at a Takeoff memorial site? Go tf to hell!!!”
Prince also offered his condolences on Instagram and called for the killer to be brought to justice.
In related news, the man being accused of firing the gun that killed TakeOff has been released from jail after posting a $1 million bond. As part of his bond agreement, Patrick Clark will have to wear an ankle monitor and remain at his parents’ home in Houston, while also avoiding contact with TakeOff’s family. He is due back in court in March.
