Jim Jones Involved in “Botched Robbery” in Harlem

After rumors hit the net that Jim Jones was jumped by his former manager, Yandi Smith’s boyfriend on Monday (October 24), the Dipset member hit up Miss Info to tell his side of the story.

Jimmy described the physical altercation as a “botched robbery,” and said he was alone in Harlem when three men stepped to him.

“The first guy, I beat the shit out of him, then the second guy jumped in with a metal pipe,” Jim explained. “I was so amped up I didn’t even feel him hitting me with it. I was still putting a beating on the first guy, but when the third guy pulled out a gun, I got out of there. I left. Anyone with a brain would do the same.”

Jones pegged the robbery to the fact that he was wearing jewelry while alone in his old neighborhood, adding that it was “a stupid mistake” to do so and vowed that “it won’t happen again.”

Jim said he returned to the studio right after the scuffle to work on his mixtape and that the above photo was taken just minutes after the incident. He also dismissed all rumors that the fight had anything to do with another beef.—Mariel Concepcion
