Jim Jones Scuffles With Hotel Security in Atlanta
Through the magic of the internet rapper Jim Jones took a disagreement with employees at an Atlanta hotel and turned it into a viral video moment. Jones got into a dispute with the hotel staff over payment issues and true to form did not shy away from confrontation. According to reports, the Harlem, N.Y. native was allegedly harassed in his hotel room because of his hefty entourage.
"Hyatt security, that's your badge?" Jones says on the video. "You a dweeb! I ain't giving you sh--. We're gonna' YouTube your ass, we're gonna make you famous in the morning d---khead." Jones continued to taunt the hotel staff, calling them several other expletives.
Jones, whose next album 'Pray IV Reign' hits stores at the end of March, updated fans about his whereabouts via his Twitter page. "'I'm in the ATL me and DJ Infamous' mix tapes drops tomorrow if u in the ATL pick up a copy (risky business volume 1)," he wrote.
This isn't the first time Jones didn't see eye to eye with staff in a public place. Last year he reportedly got into a fight with R&B singer Ne-Yo's entourage at a New York Louis Vuitton store. The altercation resulted in Jones turning himself in to authorities in early January. He was also caught on tape giving Radio City Music Hall security a piece of his mind.
Following the release of his album, Jones will return to the stage for his off Broadway play 'Hip-Hop Monologues: Inside the Life & Mind of Jim Jones.' The play will run from March 24-28.
