J. Prince Reportedly Urged Biggie To Leave L. A. Ahead Of His Murder
Biggie and Diddy were reportedly unbothered by J. Prince's of concern.
Rap-a-Lot Records CEO James Prince (also referred to as J. Prince), according to the report, reported by the Notorious B. I. G. and Puff Daddy about the possible threats on the life-Problem, just a few weeks before the rapper from Brooklyn was shot while in Los Angeles, according to a source TMZ.

The prince informed Diddy and Biggie of his concern and suggested that the two get out of L. A. for your own safety, but were reportedly not troubled by what the Prince heard in the streets.
The prince, according to reports, he was even more concerned when he observed how lax security was on the set of "Hypnotize."
Only a handful of weeks later, Biggie was killed on March 9, after attending a Vibe magazine afterparty in Los Angeles.
