Dame Dash is backing Jim Jones fully. Damon thinks that Jones next solo album is going to be a huge hit. Jim Jones signed a lucrative deal with Columbia Records last year and ex Roc-A-Fella head honcho Damon Dash thinks the new album will be a "classic." Damon grew up with Jim Jones and said he's known the Dipset member since he was six years old, but he hasn't always been supportive of his career. "I told Jim not to rap because he's not a rapper," Dash admitted. "I
looked at him like a business man. But he has enough swagger and
personality to pull it off."
Jim Jones is currently working on the album Dash is talking about, which will be his follow up to 2006's Hustler's P.O.M.E (Product of My Environment) that was lead by the hit single "Ballin." Dame said "Through his practice and his relentless assault on making music, a
record every day, he actually got pretty good," Dame said. "So his new
album, I think he might have come up with a classic, and that's me
saying that." Dash also said that Jim has two movies in the works, a book and a Byrd
Gang album coming out in June.
