Jim Jones Signs Multimillion Dollar Deal With Rick Rubin and Sony Records

jimjones1.jpgAfter much speculation, New York City’s Hot 97 radio gossip queen, Miss Info, has confirmed that Jim Jones is officially leaving Koch Records and has signed a new multimillion-dollar deal with Rick Rubin and Sony Records. “I just left the lawyer’s office,” Jones told Miss Info. “I signed a multimillion dollar joint venture with Sony. My boss is Rick Rubin, and Hip Hop [Kyambo Joshua, former Roc-A-Fella Records A&R] is doing my albums with me. What you think Jay-Z is gonna think about that?” Predictably, Koch Records was not pleased to see one of their biggest starts make the move to Sony, but according to Miss Info, Koch was “broken off nicely.” Nevertheless, Jimmy’s new deal also allows him to bring his Byrdgang Records imprint over to his new home as well. “What’s crazy is that they gave me the same deal that Un and them fucked up back in the day when they got the Sony/Untertainment deal,” Jones said. “I got that joint venture, that 50/50 split. They don’t give those out anymore. That’s a Dame Dash, Ruff Ryders [type of] deal. I’m about to go crazy with it. I’m gonna be a problem.”

    this guy must dream about jay-z on the daily. you sign a multi-million dollar deal (for what, who fucking knows) that sony will probably get fucked on since ballin was a flash in the pan and you’re still thinking about that fake ass beef?? these guys (wayne, cam, jim etc) need to understand that until they make whole albums and/or 100′s of mils their moves are irrelevant to the GOAT.

    Jimmy starting to look gay with those tight ass jeans he’s rockin all day. He look like a washed up rebel/ gangsta. He’s gonna fuck that deal up.
    Ballin was a banga, but that was a one hitter!

  • Brooklyn

    @Steve

    You took the words right out my mouth. He must honestly think that Jay is thinking about this dude. He had 1 hit compared to how many of the hits of Jay-Z? No classic album compared to Reasonable Doubt, In My Lifetime Vol.1, Blueprint 1 and The Black Album. Horrible business movie on Sony part but brillant one also. There not going to get 500k or more album sells out of this nigga but they will push him to do ringtone sells for them. Ha! The nigga got fucked and dont even know it.

    Fuck Jenny Jones! Dipset, what Thizz it! Jones is gonna flop, Ballin was luck, clear luck, he has no skills, weakest member (x memeber) in the whole set.

  • bizzle

    jimmy could never touch jay no matter what type of deal he signs period.

  • Capo

    Jim had 1 hit? Yes if you are a square we dont look at billboard charts in the hood Certified Gangsta’s, Don’t forget about me,Summer Wit Miami, Big City Bright Lights, We can do this all day.

    I respect big hommie but he turned his back on the Dips he shud have passed the ball and let Elz rip straight after Cam’s Platinum come home wit me, but he didnt, he wanted them to flop, So its only right for 4 Capo to stick his middle finger up every chance he gets.

    Jim always held dipset down and was down for the cause Cam’s only out for himself he dont give a f*ck about Elz or Jim he wants them to be spectators, Jim’s deal is better than wht they gve to Cam so Byrd Gang is now official plus he’s new affiliation with 50 and Diddy is about to get real interesting Jim do it for Harlem do it for us my dude fuck haters they die 1000 times Ya Dig?

  • nellz

    Hate runs rampant on xxl huh..?

  • maxman

    what do they see in this guy, he had one hit, fuck, let me run these god damn record labels.

  • Cuban Link

    thats a smart move on his part, now let’s sit and watch Dipset fall apart one member at a time.Its sad too, I remember when Dipset was the shit.

  • Fire

    “what do they see in this guy, he had one hit, fuck, let me run these god damn record labels.”
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Co-sign. Where’s my executive position at Sony? I bet I’d do a good job running a record label. Not hating on Jim Jones or anything, but ANYONE who only has one huge hit is going to be hard to sell to the masses (just thinking from a greedy exec’s perspective, I personally could care less about how much an artist sells as long as his or her music is good).

  • Freddy(Vega$)

    Congrats to them dudes makin more money but Why Rick R why?? Jones cant rap and dude had one good song in how many years?? i hope u payin him cause he a good A&R not Rapper….but COngrats to Jim tho Cant knock his hustle…

  • grapes

    Problem? Jimmy? Naaaa.

  • HOPE IS LOST

    Man, I am a little hopeless after hearing this shit. I thought Rick Rubin was going to help the music industry by actually signing real talent. Not no Jim Jones. Are you serious, yo? And Hip-Hop Joshua over there tripping too? Man the game is fucked up!

  • tonya

    That’s fucked up Jimmy. I want you to take a minute and reflect to how the hell you got a record deal in the first place. On Cam’s first album, that nigga shouted you out, I am coming to get you out of 5H Jimmy and for those of ya’ll that don’t know that’s Jimmy’s old apt number in the projects in Harlem. This nigga Cam got you out the projects and got you yo deal and this is how you do him? You and Juelz disgust me. I am never buying an album from yall again. Hooking up with this nigga 50, giving all types of praises and shit to him, performing your only hit. Do you really think that you that hot Jimmy? Where da fuck is loyalty? Even if you and Cam ain’t talking, ya’ll niggas been friends since diapers., I seen the pictures. Hope all this shit was worth it. Money is going to be here but friends, them shit is hard to come by. CAM I love You, Hell rell you da shit, JR Writer, nigga you is too sick. Freeky, 40 cal duke da god, I hope ya’ll niggas will stay loyal b/c when Cam do come back out, everyone that’s hating will be back on his DICK. DIPSET

    R.I.P

    CAM’RON

    p.s) well, he dead a year ago but still.

  • Dipset Does Damage

    Jim Jones is NEW YORK he got more swagger than the rest of the dudes in the game put together. Listen to an interview with him– dude can hustle. His album was hot, don’t hate. Dipset all day bitches.

  • stoneyisland

    besides for ballin and summer in miami, I think Jim Jones as a rapper is weak. Not wack say like Puffy but just weak as a lyricist. However I like how the nigga, is handling his business and marketing himself. One of the few NY niggas with a little swagger and can still push albums. Cam’ron was dead weight and Tru Life showed the wrold that cam’s knuckle game was nonexsistant:) JJ will push albums and Koch will now hitch it’s wagon to Cam’ron which is a big mistake. JJ keep baaaalllliiiiiiiiin:)

  • jaystone

    This dude.. Jim Jones, it don’t matter who u sign with or what you do or what you drop, you don’t make good songs, you don’t write tight lyrics.. The only shit mothafuckas know u for is for yellin’ “BALLIN’!!!”. But don’t nobody know the rest of the lyrics to the damn track though! So that’s your one hit! You ain’t put out shit since! And why are you always tryna go @ Jay? I know why! Because Jay-Z holds so much cult respect in ur hood throughout NYC and throughout the rest of the world, and you wish you had that! But you’ll never have that.. Because nigga, you don’t gotta real style! You got swag.. but you don’t got flow, you don’t got punchlines, you don’t got shit. SHUT YOUR FACE! Jenny Jones is No Super Lyrical MC. Jenny Jones does not have Mic Charisma like a even sub-par Good Rapper so his signing to Sony isn’t really anything grand if he isn’t even worth listeing to his Manure Sandwich of a album when it does drop. It just so happen to be that he is weird/queer/false flaggin Blood/Turn-Coat Negrozoid, which in turn makes it even more funny that he is such a prick to talk shit about Cam,Jay and Kanye when ANYBODY would rather listen to a album by them then a Jenny Jones and Turd Gang record anyday of the Week. Can anybody say that Jenny Jones can “Body” any Rapper in the game? Is he a Ghetto Poet like Tupac or Nasir? Is he experimental in music like Andre 3000 or Kanye? Is he genuinely a Hardcore Gangster like ScarFace or Beanie Siegal? Nope ! So what is his purpose of signing a Deal if he isn’t really any Good at the craft in which he wants to be a Artist In?

  • datphillydude

    well spoken words, JAYSTONE.i am so TIRED of Dipset always talken about who they bodied, what deals they signed and the famous subject that seems to be in their limited vocab which is limited to: money,cars,drinkin’, and the universal bitches(which are universal among all the rappers these days)SHAWN CARTER.i dont know what the fuck RICKY RUBEN was thinking about signing this I WISH I HAD BEEN APART OF “THE CHILDREN OF THE CORN”(which is a group that Dipset’s PINK WEARING/CAR DRIVEIN’/DAMN I WISH WOULD COME BACK WISHIN’ front man KILLA KAM was apart of whith M-A-DOLLAR SIGN-E was apart of back in the day)FAN.i mean really he basically went “all in” on his DIPSET STAT ALONE fucked up move RICKY RUBEN i mean really you cant RESURECT A CAREER THAT NEVER WAS, BY GIVING IT LOOT TO HAVE IT JUMPSTATRED!!!!!but if you talked TOMMY M. to shell out SOME LOOT 4 that type of an artist.I SEE WHY MARIAH GOT THAT DIVORECE AND THE DEAL SHE GOT!!!!!HE SUPID AS FUCK!!!and RICKY RUBE i understand that you got the usual %s that are given and that he wont OWN HIS CATALOGUE UNTIL HES LIKE….NEVER!!!!and that HE’LL GET DROPPED and OWE YOU AND TOMMY M. A LOT OF LOOT FROM THE FRONT AND BACK END but, DAMN IT DO I HAVE TO HEAR IT IN THE CLUB,VIDEO,AND RADIO..I MEAN ITS ENOUGH CLOWN ASS SPITTERS OUT THERE ALREDY DO WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO LISTEN THIS ONE 4EVER??????????????????

  • The Jig Killa

    Go watch that Busta/Aftermath insider video up in the Banger section…If this story is true SONY just got hustled by Ol’ Jim Boy!

  • Hollis

    He may have only had 1 hit so far, but he’s put some solid songs down. Check “jamaican joint” from “on my way to church” album. But overall, few in the game can match the swagger.

  • allcityunseen

  • Mr. Stay’N'School

    Ah Yes, the elusive “Multimillion Dollar Rap Deal”…1st Ca$h Money got theirs ad ow its Jimmy Jones turn – BullShit!

    This is just old fashion media hype to sell the cow even though we’re getting the milk for FREE! (You didn’t buy Jimmy’s cd did ya?)

    The older I get the more I realize rap money realy ain’t that great, especially with all the occupational hazards involved – It’s just Nigga rich, not true wealth!

    I know I drive a better car, live in a better house, and earn more aually than 99% of your super-ego rappers…and I don’t have to dodge bullets and the cops!

    It’s all a head game…I see these dudes ‘slang’n’ their mixtapes in front of the mall trying to get that paper or cop’ a deal – Niggas get a job! A REAL job!

    Rap is just music, not a fucking lifestyle to mimic or cash!

    Stay in school & Be COOL!
