Jim Jones Talks Cam’ron, Dame Dash, Max B and Nas

Harlem rapper/entrepreneur Jim Jones got his start as Cam’ron’s hype man in the late ’90s. He would later evolve into a rapper, pushing out a handful of solo projects. 

​In 2006, Jones received worldwide acclaim from his Billboard-charting smash “We Fly High (Ballin).”

Many moons later, Jones is still recording — he recently dropped his latest album The Kitchen. Dip Set’s capo appeared on the Rap Radar podcast to promote the project and explain his musical hiatus. He also reflected on his upbringing in Harlem, co-founding the Diplomats, being a trendsetter, and popularizing “Love and Hip-Hop.”

During the discussion, Jones opened up about Dip Set’s past beef with Nas; his current rift with Dip Set comrade Cam’ron; what caused his fallout with Dame Dash; and why he thinks Max B would be as big as Drake if he wasn’t incarcerated. 

Check out a few highlights from the interview below.
