Jim Jones Says Nas ‘Lost His Pizazz,’ Cleans Up T.I. Mess
Lately, New York rapper Jim Jones has been very vocal about who/what he likes and dislikes. His most recent victim is fellow New York rapper Nas, though it's not clear why Jones has a sudden distaste for the Queensbridge emcee. "F--- Nas. I don't give a f--- about Nas," Jones said in a recent interview. He's a rapper that just lost his pizazz. When I was in high school, he was the s---. He was the n---- that got us hype. 'New York State Of Mind,' 'Illmatic' and all of that." I guess it's safe to say Jones isn't a fan of Nas' latest untitled album.
But, the Dipset capo isn't all about beef. In between bashing Nas, Jones attempted to clean up the mess he made with T.I. when he criticized the Atlanta rapper's hit single 'Swagga Like Us. "People took it the wrong way," Jones explained. "I wasn't really deliberately doing nothing to knock T.I. I was just saying what I felt regarding swagger and who sets the precedent for it. I know for sure that people have said, 'Yo, you looking like Jim Jones' ... 'I'm trying to get that 'Jim Jones' look.' But I haven't heard people saying, 'You're looking like T.I.,' or whoever. Where I'm from, n----s don't run to go look like no [Kanye West]. I don't hear n----s in the hood like, 'I need to get that jacket [Jay-Z] had on.'
