Remember what J. Prince told Kiotti, “Don’t let Instagram become your OG.” True enough, after video surfaced of some New York thugs hospitalizing and robbing YBN Almighty Jay, the Rap-A-Lot CEO put out a calm warning to anybody who was involved in the attack on Jay.
Not even a week after the message, J. Prince was good on his word and got YBN Almighty Jay’s chain back in proper possession. J. Prince confirmed the news via Instagram on Tuesday, but didn’t provide details on how he retrieved the stolen piece.
“Real recognizes real in every hood and has a way of connecting in spite of clowns and squares,” Prince captioned a photo featuring French Montana. “The homies from the Bronx, KT, @hocus45th and @frenchmontana kept it real with me and my son @jprincejr. Tho it was never about the chain, it was about the name that was built off of blood, sweat, and tears […] To @ybnalmightyjay I’ll be returning your jewelry soon Lil homie.”

Real recognizes real in every hood and has a way of connecting in spite of clowns and squares. – – The homies from the Bronx, KT, @hocus45th and @frenchmontana kept it real with me and my son @jprincejr – – Tho it was never about the chain, it was about the name that was built off of blood sweat and tears. – – I welcome these brothers to our #MobTies movement and look forward to us doing business in the future together. – – There’s power in numbers and when strong brothers from the streets align themselves with one another, suckas tremble. So I can only imagine how some of you are feeling right now! – – I’ve invited these homies to #htown for @jprincejr birthday celebration March 28-31, 2019 and I look forward to coming to the Bronx soon. – – The big picture here is the same as I stated in my first post, to not allow moment thinkers to muddy the waters over the movement. – – To @ybnalmightyjay I’ll be returning your jewelry soon Lil homie. – – To be continued… #TheArtAndScienceOfRespect
Almighty Jay was hospitalized earlier this month following an attack by a group of men outside a building in Manhattan. The assailants took off with Almighty Jay’s money, the chain and left him requiring a number of stitches to his face. The chain made an appearance in a Zae Numbafive music video, though Zae says he had nothing to do with the assault.
J. Prince specifically called out Zae in a follow-up IG post, referring to the rapper as a “clown”. “They Recently Bragged About Robbing The Artist YBN Almighty Jay Whom I’m Invested In,” he wrote in the post last week. “They’ve Robbed Him Of His Money And Jewelry Including A Rap-A-Lot Piece. So Therefore They Have Robbed A Piece Of Me.”
