Rap-A-Lot Records CEO James Prince (also known as J. Prince) reportedly
informed the Notorious B.I.G. and Puff Daddy about possible threats on Biggie’s life,
just weeks before the Brooklyn rapper was murdered while in Los Angeles, according to a TMZ source.
Prince is said to have met with the duo in February 1997 after receiving word that
they were shooting Biggie’s “Hypnotize” music video in L.A.
Since Prince was previously in the city with Scarface, his artist at the time, he claimed
to have heard chatter about a possible revenge hit on Biggie after Tupac’s death. Tupac Shakur
was killed months prior in September 1996 after a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.
