"50 was hosting 'Rap City' and he wanted Jim Jones to be his guest," he said. "That was a good look for me, I needed that. I been in my house for a couple months, I ain't been doing nothing. Why not come back out with the number one n—a in the whole entire music industry? Know what I'm talking 'bout?
Jim again reiterated that he's never had beef with 50.
"Who knows, in the future, you might see some Jimmy and 50 songs," he said. "Everybody else do it. I keep looking at the game and hear everybody beefing, but ain't nobody die yet. I think it's all a publicity stunt. I'mma go get my money because nobody wants beef. Where I'm from, you start beef when n—as start dying and the only person that died was my man Stack Bundles, God rest his soul. That was due to real circumstances we go through every day when you coming up on the streets. That's a f—ed-up situation to even have to mention. The game is bullsh–, so I rather go get my money."
If you're wondering, Jim has no idea what Cam'ron thinks of all this or anything else — his once inseparable homie is nowhere to be found.
"Finding Cam's like finding Nemo," he laughed. "When you see him, tell him I'm looking for him. Smell me?"
You couldn't find Cappo in Las Vegas over the past weekend for the VMA Awards. Ballin' is tailor-made for the city, but Jim's a bit upset he didn't get any nominations.
"I had the #1 song in the world last year statistically, and I didn't get nominated for anything, so why should I come out there? … Nobody had more spins than me. … They gonna tell me the Jones don't get nominated?"
Still, he managed to look on the bright side. "But we win some, we lose some. We take the good with the bad. I'll be back."
Jim's next album is due to drop in March, while the Byrd Gang album is coming in November.
