Jim Jones Takes Shots At T.I., Jay-Z
New York rapper Jim Jones doesn’t seem to be too pleased with being left out of T.I.’s mega-collabo track “Swagger Like Us.”
In a recent interview with Complex magazine, the Harlem diplomat expresses his distaste with the song saying he was deliberately left off collabo featured on T.I.’s latest LP, Paper Trail.
“I think it was deliberate. I really do think it was deliberate; maybe in my sick twisted mind IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a little crazy. People know who set the precedent as far as fashion in this industry and people know who damn near changed the world as far as fashion.
You look at people, they went from the urban world of clothing, back when Rocawear and Sean John was cool. And then in the past 5 years I stepped in and gave them a taste of what rock and roll looks like from my side. I guess people would say from an urban side, and it seemed to catch on like wildfire, to the point that people was going to stores and asking for that Jim Jones look.”
Jones also says he’s putting together his own version of the track and even provided a snippet featured below.
“Me and Juelz had Chink do our own beat, I have WeezyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s verse in my inbox right now and we kept the hook of that song because it was a sample. So weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to put that as a bonus track on the album, and put it to the streets. Ã¢â‚¬Å“No one on the corner got swag like you we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Rocawear thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s for fags like you.Ã¢â‚¬Â
