    Jim Jones, the Dipset member and Byrd Gang leader, is weighing in on Jay-Z's new "Run This Town" music video which features Rihanna and Kanye West. [Jay-Z ft Kanye West, Rihanna – Run This Town – Watch Here] Jim Jones says that his former Roc-A-Fella associate (Jigga) continues to steal his style. After the video leaked yesterday online (August 20th), Jones hit up his twitter to give his reaction.

    "Everytim I c ths n*gga videos he looks mor n mor like me," Jones wrote. "Is he tryin to Jack my splash or should I b flattered lol Thts my thng I stay fly." [Jay-Z ft Kanye West, Rihanna – Run This Town – Watch Here]

    In related news, Jim Jones previously went off on Jay-Z's "Death Of Autotune" album earlier saying he's hurting younger artists. "We're getting money off of auto-tune, it's just sounding like somebody's trying to knock a hustle and I don't think that's a little bit gangster if you ask me," Jones explained in an interview last June. "We getting money. He's knocking the hustle, ya dig? If these young men are making money off of autotune why would you try to stop that, when you got all the money already? I seen him [at Summer Jam], I don' think he wanted to see me. He almost stopped the whole concert because he said I was in the way of him getting on stage and all of that. But that's politics for the game, ya dig? How you doing? We back, we ballin', we poppin' champagne."
