About a decade ago, the beef between Jay Z and Jim Jones (which really began as beef between Jay Z and Cam’ron) was at its height. Both of the rappers put their feelings on wax, dropping diss track after diss track about each other. But, now it’s 2017 and the beef has been squashed … but how?
While at the Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch, Jones, the label’s newest signee, opened up to HipHollywood about moving past his feud with the Jigga man in order to take his career to the next level — all it took was a simple chat. “A real ni**a conversation,” is how Jim described his encounter with Hov. “You look a person in the eyes and you can feel somebody’s energy … I guess [he] felt my pain and [he] knew where I was trying to go,” the former Dipset rapper recounted. And just like that Jones has a new record deal, working on a new album and ready to focus all of his efforts on himself for a change.
Also, while at the Roc Nation brunch, folks couldn’t help but talk about another Jay Z production … his twins with Beyoncé! The mere mention of Queen Bey’s name had the black carpet buzzing with excitement. Check it out in the video below.
