Jim Jones Makes His Own SLU, Talks Sh*t About T.I.

Posted By on October 8, 2008

    Jim Jones is pissed he wasn't on "Swagger Like Us" from T.I. Jones thinks it was on purpose, “I really do think it was deliberate; maybe in my sick twisted mind I’m a little crazy. People know who set the precedent as far as fashion in this industry and people know who damn near changed the world as far as fashion…in the past five years I stepped in and gave them a taste of what rock and roll looks like from my side. I guess people would say from an urban side, and it seemed to catch on like wildfire, to the point that people was going to stores and asking for that Jim Jones look.”

    Jones is making his own version of the track called "Jackin Swagger From Us" that will feature Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana. Jones went on to talk about T.I. (who he has beef with) saying “I don’t feel like he possesses any swag. Not like that. It’s fabricated. They’re watching other people, then they try and do it. You know people that dress like T.I.? You know people that go out and say let me get a T.I. outfit or do you know people who say, 'Yo, you’re looking like Jim Jones?' Which one? Lemme hear it! When the bitches want to fuck you and the niggas want be like you, who got the swag? Niggas with money and fame always going to look like they doing something ’cause they got the camera in front of them. But the cool dudes always stick out no matter where they at.”

    Previously this week, Clinton Sparks talked to T.I. [watch here], filled him in on the Jim Jones comments and TIP said “Well you know what, that's very funny that either one of you should mention that because my clothing line Akoo will be in stores in November and I believe there will be quite a few people going out to get it. So hopefully, I can step my swag up a little bit. Maybe I can meet his standards. I ain't trippin' over that, man.” [watch here]
