Jim Jones got a little makeover this week. The Harlem rapper chopped off his signature braids to sport a more clean-cut look, and couldn't wait to share the news with his fans.

He showed off the new 'do on Twitter. "Get a good look at th bad guy this th last time u see a bad guy look this good #SPOOKY he tweeted, followed by a photo link the his new look. Fans sent their feedback on the haircut and in response to a few guys who weren't feeling it, Jim added, "Y r dudes postin there opinion about my hair cut tht th ladies job smh thts way to Zesty for me #NoH #suspect lol."

The new look comes a little over a month after Jones was arrested and released in New York City for driving with a suspended license. And unlike most rappers who usually find themselves at odds with the cops, Jones was gracious, telling the New York Daily News, "They showed me total respect, every officer in there is a gentleman."

New haircut and legal woes aside, Jones has had a busy year in music. In early April, he released his fifth studio album 'Capo' after spending some time on the road with his recently reunited Diplomats crew.

Dipset -- Jones, along with Cam'ron and Juelz Santana -- are scheduled to headline the upcoming Hot 97 Summer Jam concert in June. Additional acts at the concert will include Lil Wayne, Drake, Wiz Khalifa and Waka Flocka Flame.
