Controversy surrounds Tekashi 6ix9ine these days. The New York rapper has caught a lot of heat over the last few months whether it be beefing with YG and The Game or getting into a scrap with Houston rapper AC at LAX. His latest issue? Dealing with Rap-A-Lot’s own J Prince Jr.

In a recent interview, Tekashi broke down his side of the story and the perceived disrespect of Rap-A-Lot. When the two first met in a sneaker store, Tekashi says that the two briefly spoke and that Prince Jr was mobbed up. “Anything he wanted to say to me, he could have said to me,” he said. The next day, Tekashi was supposed to show up at Prince Jr’s birthday party but was denied entry. “I guess it was a situation that we gotta address in private before we make it public,” the rapper said about not making the party. He also called J Prince Jr. a “clout chaser” for revealing the situation three days after it happened. “You a grown ass man with kids,” he said.

The self-proclaimed “hottest rapper in the game” then broke down why SXSW was an issue for him. “There were grown ass men marching the streets looking for me! Them n**** got kids, missing work, looking for a kid with rainbow hair. How stupid do you look?!” 6ix9ine was supposed to headline a Worldstar concert in Austin but never took the stage because he felt there wasn’t enough security for him. Per 6ix9ine, J Prince Jr hung around the stage all night and the security that was on stage were allegedly from 5th Ward.

“It just started looking like a setup to me,” he said. “How am I supposed to give your venue, your crowd a good performance and I supposed to be looking over my back?” he continued. “I’m not about to get Worldstar’d on a Worldstar stage.”

Still throughout that, the young rapper was defiant, especially in regards to any so-called travel ban back to the H. “I’ll go back to Houston whenever I want,” he said.
