Prince and Muhammad Ali meet for the first time at 1997 press conference. “My friend called me a couple of days ago and asked me," Prince said. "'Muhammad wants you to — and I said 'Yes.' I didn’t even let him finish. He could have said 'mow the lawn,' and I would have been down with it. Muhammad’s my hero. He has been since I was a child."
