During a recent Instagram Live session with Fat Joe, Jim Jones said that despite their past feuds, Jay-Z is his all-time favorite rapper. He said, “In my life, um, I can’t lie, Jay’s always been one of my favorite rappers from even before we even had a deal. Even from before, when Cam and Ma$e went down to try and get signed to JAY and them.” He added, “JAY’s a dope dude from the rhymes to what he put on for the industry.
He broke a lot of walls down that you probably wouldn’t have been able to do at all if he didn’t take that first step. Not to mention what Roc-A-Fella did for the culture and s—t like that. They put on. They made us feel good for New York.
