Joseph Guillermo Jones II, better known as Jim Jones, is a rapper, record producer, music video director, and actor. He is an original member of the hip hop group The Diplomats (also known as Dipset). He recently pulled up to the Power 106 studios to have a close conversation with morning show host, Nick Cannon. The two had a lot to talk about from the possible reunion of Dipset to Jim fanboying over Snoop Dogg.
Nick asked Jim about the possibility of a new Dipset album and what the plan is when Juelz Santana comes out of prison.
“When he (Juelz Santana) comes out of prison there possibly might be a new Dipset album. The Diplomat movie might be in the works when he comes out. That’s probably more of our focus than anything. I do believe that we got a story that needs to be seen in hip hop and I know people have a lot of their own glory stories but we have our own action movie that needs to be shown.”
Nick then asked Jim if he’s ever fanned out over anyone.
“Snoop. I used to go crazy and still go crazy when I see Snoop…I probably was in 11th grade when Deep Cover came out. From then the hold he had on me with music was like who the f*ck was this ni**a named Snoop.”
