capo denied entrance to okayplayer party
"The hip-hop police apparently still keeps tabs on Jim Jones. Dipset’s capo was slated to make an appearance at the Roots’ “Okayplayer Holiday Jammy” at New York City’s B.B. Kings Blues Club last night (12/18), but was denied entrance by the venue’s security.
A recent YouTube clip pictures an agitated Jones and his entourage surrounded by B.B. Kings security and several police officers. The clip shows Jones yelling at security while being removed from the premises.
“You made it worse, you dick head,” Jones shouted at one security guard before pulling out his camera phone. “I got you on my radar. Let me get a picture of this fat bastard. Let me make you safe. Don’t touch me. Don’t touch me, you pussy!”
Jones was likely on hand to reciprocate the love he received from the Roots’ Questlove. The funky drummer recently predicted that Jones will be 2009’s biggest star in a DJ Semtex interview." [XXL MAG]
Elliott Wilson told me all of this went down while I was downstairs enjoying Bilal's amazing set at the show. Damn they did Jimmy dirty upstairs.. I didn't even recall seeing pigs around like that. I think Questlove's thoughts on Jim doing it big in '09 are pretty accurate; went to his "Hip Hop Monologues" listening event and I was genuinely impressed with his transformation. He has really come into his own.. And this joint he has on PRAY IV REIGN called "My My My" about Stack Bundles made me cry, straight up. I have had some really great conversations with Dr. Ben and the Hip Hop Summit ladies about him a lot too; definitely looking forward to watching him make moves next year.
