Jim Jones Lands Executive Gig At Koch

Koch Records announced today that Dipset capo Jim Jones will be the new vice president of urban A&R at the label.

Under the new role, Jones will be responsible for signing new acts. Jim has long history at the label, along with releasing a handful of records, he also put out the DVD for the indie called A Day In The Fastlife.

“Jim Jones put Koch on the map,” label prez Alan Grunblatt said in a statement. “He truly knows what it takes to make a hit record. I am thrilled to be working with him for many years to come.”

“It feels good to know that the hard work has been recognized by the same people that have helped me get to this point in my career,” Jones added. “They recognize that I’m not only an artist but a person that can smell talent and be able to mold a superstar.”

Under his new position, Jones’ first release will be by Dispet associate Juelz Santana and his Skull Gang. That compilation drops on February 24. – Elan Mancini

          @ kza
          Man, I’ve been chasin these cats since last night. Everytime I see “Gullee Boy” scroll down the screen I start rollin!

          Jerzey kno he’s a fool! Got me dyin! That’s the next G-UNOT KILLA.

        • FlapJack

          Gullee Boy vs. JerZey

          My money is on Gullee and the microwave movement
          He made a point to tell us he keeps his shit on the LEFT side of his myspace page, so you know he’s crippin like gunot killa

          But JerZey has this whole: EVERYBODY POSTIN’ shit going for him, plus he put where the garbage is, so he probably has a friend that smokes with cigarettes..

          Time will tell

        • tony grand$

          The hype is beginning…….

          Gullee Boy vs Jerzey

          Somethin tells me GUNOT is gonna smell blood (no disrespect GUK) & want a piece of the action……

          My money’s on Jerz tho Flap, he’s workin the “broken record” method, kinda like Arnold Schwarzeneggar in “Terminator”. That’s some scary shit.

        • FlapJack

          I just listened to 20 sec of two of his songs.

          All I have to say is:
          Fuck you in your pussy Jerzey!
          You think that makes you a man?
          Picking on handicapped people!

        • tony grand$

          I fux witcha Flap, from the day I took ur advice bout my posts, but, huh? What the hell was that?

          *grand$ looks round confused*

          U lost me fam.

        • FlapJack

          Check the myspace tony. dude is obviously retarded

  • stoneyisland

    I aint really into this cats music, outta all of the joints he has put out, I like maybe 3 joints but I can respect his hustle. Money talks……………

    Ps. That tribute to bad santa mix tape was kinda hot, never thought I say that about any of dipset or byrd gang shit………

  • Hate Hate and more Hate

    That’s not the smell of new talent Jenny Jones, that’s the smell of your stank ass.

    And what’s up with gunot killa? He acting more bipolar than the Game

  • fireforreal

    I don’t like this guy’s music at all,but I can’t hate on him being a business man.He came in under Cam and surpassed hime. That’s a gangsta move right there. Why wait for Cam ,you’ll die waiting to make moves. Cam is gonna say he’s happy for Jim but you know something has to be going on for them to not speak but jim and the rest of dipset are cool.

  • venemez

    Ahh shit Jim Jones doing big thangs. Can be mad at that. Respect his hustle.

    Get that paper Capo

  • willz

    Model a superstar, wtf mold yourself.How does this shit happen i Haven’t heard any jim jones lyrics in his whole career i thought were good.Yet he’s now’s spotting talent.No-One care’s for skull gang like no one cared for jim.Cam and juelz held it down, fine but it’s a case of limiting the quantity and maximising the quality.There should be a new genre called SWAG were you dont sell many records or have good lyrics or beats.But you talk greasy on world star and show cars and your muscles.Now if talent is needed for that, and some do have more than others.Than let Jim Jones be an A&R but it’s called Rap.

  • http://www.hip-hopkings.com Stu

    Wow. Bad move imo. Jim Jones sucks and he surely aint got the business mentality to handle this kind of position?

  • giantstepp

    Wow. No hate for JJ, but an exectutive? Even at Koch. I just dont understand but maybe they;re smarter than me at Koch.

  • anutha_level

    bum ass nicca

  • Szasure

    Jones is making moves again. Thats whats up

  • jmes

  • http://www.xxlmag.com Jhon da Analyst

    Good Luck Jimmy……..1st one should be a hit. Get Sheek on a track with those bums, no disrespect, and you might have something. Ha!! Yeah, man……… Cam, What Up???!!!!!!!!

  • http://xxl ryan

    wat superstars has this guy molded? none exactly plus he cant even make 1 of his records go gold matter of fact he never had a good album. he need 2 get under cam wing n stay there cuz as far as i kno dere wouldnt b a jim without cam.

  • master cheef

    he better thank 50 for promoting him to don and demoting cam to capo.

  • CLever

    Wasn’t jim jones an a&r or VP exec at Sony & that during his time there….NO SUPERSTARS EVER GOT MOLDED! i think the whole time jim was there…all he ever did was allow himself to be video-taped numerous times by different websites sitting down somewhere (usually in a recording studio)…always puffing some of the sticky-sticky, gloating about his new job, & throwing darts at other emcees…after a little bit of that…SONY FIRED HIS PUNK ASS…WE’LL SEE IF JIM JONES ACTUALLY DOES ANYTHING THIS TIME AROUND TO ACTUALLY DESERVE A PAYCHECK 4 SOMETHING OTHER THAN RUNNING HIS BIG MOUTH
