Jim Jones Vs Joe La Puma (Complex)
Joe La Puma got to speak to one of last year’s cover boys for the second time. Here’s a choice excerpt from their conversation:
Complex: Are you referring to the video that surfaced of you boppin’ in the club to Jay’s verse on “Swagga Like Us?”
Jim Jones: I like “Swagga Like Us.” Shit, what are you going to be in the middle of the club dancing, like you got your lady with you and he come on and you’re supposed to just stop? She’ll look at you like, “You queer-ass nigga!” So shit, what the fuck is wrong with you niggas, I’m boogeying, man. And I might turn that shit up to 40 in the car if I’m moving fast. My personal issues has nothing to do with my artistic likes. If he has a hot record, he has a hot record. That shit with Alicia is dope, dope as hell. I’m not giving him props, I just like the music. I don’t give a fuck about him, fuck that nigga and the camel he rode in on. If he has a dope ass record though, what the fuck you going to do? It’s fucked up though because they don’t play “Ballin’” in the 40/40 club, that’s the hating shit I be talking about. I’ve got confirmation from DJs who have been kicked out for playing that record.
He also goes on to discuss Curtis vs. Jay-Z, Max B’s sentence and early Dipset life. He also takes issue with Complex’s Best Songs of The 2000’s list, and gets in a little argument with Joe. He also mentions Certified Gangstas Pt. 2 with Game.
