J. Prince has denied the rumor that Hip Hop artists are expected to “check in” with him whenever they visit Houston, saying he “doesn’t have time” for that.

In a preview of his forthcoming interview with the Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast, the longtime Houston music executive scoffed at the idea that he would enforce such a protocol.

“Never. We don’t have time for no sucka shit like that,” he said matter of factly. “A lot of people from the different police departments to all these different people wanna insinuate like we extorting people and they have to check in.

“Man, that ain’t no money in that shit!,” he continued. “[And] I got more money than I can spend, right? That shit ain’t gon’ work. It ain’t gon turn out right, ’cause real n-ggas ain’t gon’ have that no way. Check in for what?”

The Rap-A-Lot Records founder did state, however, that having his influence in the city at one’s disposal can serve as a benefit to those who visit.

“But on the flip side, there is what you call a brownie point to being able to have us as friends,” J. Prince added. “I don’t wanna impose or force myself to embrace nobody. By the same token, those that I respect and I befriend, there is a difference coming into this city as our friend versus by yourself. And the difference is, we all respect it.”

Set to arrive on YouTube and podcasting platforms on Sunday evening (February 5) at 7:30 p.m. EST, Prince’s chat with Million Dollaz Worth Of Game hosts Gillie Da Kid and Wallo comes at a time when the mogul’s family has been under scrutiny, specifically due to their position in Houston’s Hip Hop Community.

Many people have been holding the Prince family responsible for TakeOff’s death, in light of the fact that he and Quavo were with Prince’s son J. Prince Jr. in the hours before the late Migos rapper’s death.

J. Prince issued a statement two days after TakeOff died in which he offered his condolences, spoke to his lengthy relationship with all three members of the Migos and addressed how widely footage from the scene of the shooting had been spread around.

The Rap-A-Lot Records founder also used the opportunity to distance himself from those responsible for the killing.

“I consider myself a man that’s quick to listen and slow to speak, therefore to whomever is responsible for putting that bullet in my little nephews head, let it be known that you can’t hide behind me, beside me or anywhere near me because I don’t tolerate dumb shit,” Prince wrote in an Instagram tribute to TakeOff. “I speak these words not knowing whos bullet is responsible for his death. With that being said, the root of this tragedy is foolish and has to be owned by the fool.”

However, the Prince family caught even more heat when, in lieu of attending TakeOff’s funeral in Atlantathey put up a tribute to the rapper outside 810 Billiards and Bowling — the site of his death — that most prominently featured their last name. Doves were also released in TakeOff’s honor.

In a separate clip of the podcast interview shared to social media on Friday (February 3), Gillie Da Kid revealed that J. Prince confirmed that he’s had a conversation with Quality Control Music CEO Pierre “P” Thomas about the circumstances surrounding TakeOff’s death.

According to Gillie Da Kid in a preview of the forthcoming episode, the Houston music executive told him of the sit down before he and Wallo agreed to have him and his sons on their platform.
