The hip-hop vet has had his hand in many projects outside of music, and while he may be viral with every post updating his followers with his Weatherman reports, Jones chops it up with Carisma about the many ventures and collabs he’s been focused on. Jones has kept up his health and shares his fitness journey with us through social media and while he jokingly gives advice to the older generation of rappers to set up their AARP accounts, the forever Diplomat shares the importance of physical health.
As hip-hop has been shaken by the recent passings of the late DMX and Black Rob, Jim speaks on his close friendships with X and Rob as the artists all grew up together on the east side of New York and how they will forever be connected as family.
Jones also speaks with Carisma about his latest project ‘The Fraud Department’, which all came together on a complete virtual tip. Beginning at the start of the novel 2020 pandemic, he and collaborator Harry Fraud completed their album via FaceTime calls and emails. The project also highlights a French Montana feature on “Bada Bing”.
Jim goes on to detail his “Saucey” cannabis line, hands out advice on cryptocurrency, and talks West Coast rap.
