Jim Jones Leaves Columbia, Next Album Coming Spring 2010 on E1

XXLMag.com has learned that Dipset Capo Jim Jones has left Columbia Records and recently signed a deal to release his next solo studio album on E1 Music, formerly known as Koch Records. According to the contract, the Harlem rapper will also drop a mixtape vie E1 as well.

Jones has a long history with the E1. Along with releasing a handful of records on the imprint, last January he was appointed vice president of urban A&R.

“Jim Jones put Koch on the map,” label prez Alan Grunblatt said in a prior 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.”

Jones’ as-yet-untitled new album is set to hit shelves in spring 2010.—Jesse Gissen

    WOW!!!!I could have sworn it was Cam. Grunblatt and Jones both owe they careers to Camron.

    So where does that put Diplomat Records (Cam’s label not Jenny’s) at?

    Jim Jones should not have left his situation with E1/KOCH in the first place. I’m not a big jim jones fan, but he was definitely getting his paper out of that situation. More artist should try and take the independent route, and take the power out of the hands of these corporations with old ass business pricks trying to tell the hoods what hip hop is. Wish him luck on that shit.

    Jim started feeling himself after having one big hit and thought he was ready for the major leagues. after striking out big time it’s back to the minors for Pigpen.

    all hatin aside it is more profitable there anyway.
