Posted By on February 25, 2010

     New York Rapper Jim Jones recently gave his opinion on his group Dipset's history, explaining how he maintains the whole "hustling" mentality that the group is known for. According to the rapper, who is known for his "Balling" track, his upcoming "The Ghost Of Rich Porter" mixtape is a throwback to the early days of Dipset's history.

     "This is hustling music.  I just remember the days when n*ggas used to love to hustle.  What we did as Diplomats, as a whole, me, Cam, Juelz, Freekey, we're one of the last of the Mohicans for Harlem, upholding that thing," Jones said in an interview. "We bring a lot to the table as far as the fame and the history as of recent and in the last decade. That's 'us' up there, holla at us. We got equal share to that, we feel like we harder when it comes to the streets, you don't see too much of us often. So get a good look at us like I've been saying. [laughs] Life is a hustle to me, I'm a hustler, man. Hustle is just about getting money man. It doesn't matter what it is that you're hustling.  I'm going for mines.  Right now I've been doing music.  I've been doing entertainment."
