On what would have been Prince‘s 59th birthday, Ed Lover & Monie Love were celebrating the legacy of the incredible artist who left this earth so unexpectedly last year. Ed Lover brings up the very interesting story of Prince and Rick James‘ animosity toward each other.

Prince opened up for Rick James on his 1980 Fire It Up Tour, but Rick quickly developed a distaste for him. This quickly bubbled into an open and unapologetic rivalry, with the two of exchanging jabs at each other endlessly.
