On Monday, J. Prince shared a video of him with Kanye, tweeting about an impromptu meeting with the artist at the Rothko Chapel in Houston.
“I met with @kanyewest [last] night in Htown at the Rothko Chapel,” he wrote. “It wasn’t in my plans to meet him there but I must say I’m glad I didn’t allow a worship place for God to detour our meeting.”
He continued, “There will come a time in life where we all should embrace the movement thinking, over the moment thinking. Moment thinking gets us stuck in the cycle of confusion, revenge, killings, and things of darkness that take you to a place worse than slavery. Movement thinkers dream of a better tomorrow, a bigger picture, longevity choices and humbling themselves to forgive. They don’t allow fear and pride to stunt their growth, and they’re always looking for the good in every situation and that’s where the leaders are separated from the followers.”
In the video, Kanye is reading what sounds like a statement from his phone, offering peace with Drake and sharing his feelings to put their feud to rest.
“I’m making this video to address the ongoing back and forth between myself and Drake. Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other and it’s time to put it to rest. I’m asking Drake on Dec. 7 to join me on stage as a special guest to share the two biggest albums of the year live in Los Angeles with the ultimate purpose being to free Larry Hoover,” Ye said. “I believe this event will not only bring awareness to our cause, but prove to people – everywhere – how much more we can accomplish when we lay our pride to the side and come together.”
In more tweets, J. Prince added context to the message.
“So I met with @kanyewest to pass on the message from my brother Larry Hoover who said he would like to see peace between the two of them,” J. Prince wrote. “Ye received this well and said thanks because he never had anyone that sat him down and explained things to him the way I did. I’m looking forward to all of us working together in unison to elevate our communities around the world.”
In a recent episode on Drink Champs, Kanye spoke about Drake, saying he would “absolutely” do a Verzuz with him and then broke down Drake’s strategy when it comes to beefing with other rappers.
“Drake don’t do an outright diss song where it’s a headshot. He’s gonna set it up like war,” West said. “He’s gonna do stuff like, live five blocks down the street from you. He’s gonna go and DM every single girl in your family, every single girl around your family. All your niggas’ girls. It’s away games and home games. This is professional rap.”
A part two of the conversation is slated to drop on Nov. 11 on Revolt TV.
