Prince was no stranger to getting in scraps with other public figures which ranged from legal to psychological...to nearly physical.

The moment he arrived on the scene, Prince found himself in a feud with the one and only Rick James, who at the time was the leading renegade of funk. James was not shy about his disdain for the purple even coming close to “knocking hos scrawny ass.”

Michael Jackson posed a more cerebral competitor, provoking his opponent in front of his mentor, dropping Thriller the same year as 1999 (1983), and destroying him at the Grammys. In the end, we allowed guest judge give the long game fight to The Artist for reasons I’m sure all of you know.

By the time Justin Timberlake came around, Prince had already gained serious muscle and sparring skills from his long winded bout with Warner and a bad mistake in harassing Sinead O’Connor. He simply dismissed JT and the prom king’s behaviour has haunted his internet shadow.

Join us in breaking down the total knockouts, the stalemates, and the embarrassing moments of Prince vs. The Industry.
