Today Maks G and I got to go behind the scenes of the YP and Jim Jones music video shoot for their record, "Gettin' Money," at Chicago's Lacuna Lofts. Following the shoot, I got to sit down with Jim Jones, where we spoke about how the collaboration with Chicago's YP came about, his definition of Vampire Life, and his ambassador role with Red Bull, which included a debut song with All-Star Deron Williams. Lastly I wanted to throw him off, and ask an unexpected, but fun question. What is one thing that most people don't know about Jim Jones? Find out in this exclusive interview.
The Capo was on deck at this past weekend performing for the Harris Theater audience atRemix The Runway! Lara Phillips caught up with him to talk about his fresh fit in honor of the event, and got a chance to ask about his recent mixtape Capo Life featuring artists likeCam’ron, Sen City, Snoop Dogg, Gucci Mane, Sean Garrett, Juelz Santana, Vado, andYo Gotti. Jim Jones says that he’s been recording for over a year and a half straight, and to expect his album Capo in stores this coming February alluding that it will feature collabs from Jadakiss, Raekwon, Trey Songz, Sean Garrett, Cam’ron, and Snoop Dogg.
I’m excited to see Jim Jones making moves again, and the Diplomats getting back together for a concert reunion. They were a powerful movement back in the day, I’m still waiting on Killa Season 2! I used to listen to Hustler’s P.O.M.E. my freshman year of college in the art school dorms with my guy D. It was official. Well expect more from Jim Jones with his own TV Show? Until then check out capolife.com (if it’s up by now), and follow the man@jimjonescapo!
