Everybody’s favorite angel of dirt sat down with the homie Joe to speak on “Swagga Like Us”, Jay-Z vs 50, Max B’s sentence, early Dip Set life and more. Some choice quotes:
Complex: Now him and Jay. He’s baiting the shit out of Jay.
Jim Jones: [Rapping 50’s “So Disrespectful”] “Jay’s a big man, he too big to respond…” I was working out to that shit today, no homo. When you diss me, I’m so disrespectful. [In British accent] “I’m so disrespectful!” He caught that. He caught that song, word. “I’ve been gone so long that my accent changed.” [Laughs]. I’m still a fan of the music, so pardon me. I still listen to all the music, you might catch me boppin’ in the club to niggas I hate, but that has nothing to do with good music.
Complex: A few weeks ago, he did a drunken freestyle where takes credit for putting you, Gucci Mane and others on to the whole Blood movement…
Jim Jones: I guess we all get drunk and say some things that’s out of context. But I’ve know Game for a very long time. I know him pretty good, I know his family, I know that he meant nothing by it. When I started this thing, the only thing I knew about the West Coast is Menace To Society. That’s the closest we got to the West Coast. We started things since about high school, about ’93. So, our mission was a little bit different than theirs. But, low and behold, it was going on. It’s nothing I’m proud of. Black on black crimes, and black people dying. The realism of it is scary. And it’s going on everywhere. Not just on the East Coast and not just on West Coast. It’s a hell of an epidemic. And there’s nothing wrong with brothers getting together and riding for a cause, but we got to get it to be positive. If you got that amount of people that’s willing to come together, you could put them to work and do something and make some money. And the homies know what I’m talking about. I don’t care if you triple OG, murderer of all murders and shit like that. When you sit back and think about all that shit, it’s like, damn.
