The 25 Most Amazing Jim Jones Ad Libs

1 of 26
    Jim Jones’ approach to rapping is really a masterful thing (Really). He makes a proclamation and immediately follows it up, as if the line couldn’t have been properly digested on its’ own (Footnotes!). Sometimes it’s a mere reiteration of the rhyme (That means repeat). Sometimes he provides commentary as an extension to the point (Wikipedia!). Often, they’re unnecessary explanations. But almost always, they’re amazing; often even more entertaining than the raps themselves. Jimmy’s made a career of ad-libs. What would “We Fly High” have been without “Ballliiinnnn’”? So before we interrupt ourselves with our own ad-libs (again!), take a look at the 25 most amazing ad-libs from the Capo himself. —<i>Neil Martinez-Belkin</i><a href="">(@Neil_MB)</a>

    the title said ‘amazing’, but i think you meant ‘pointless’; is that what hip hop has come to now? praising dudes for ad-libs instead of actual things that matter… like cadence, content, etc. giving this dude props for ad-libs is like having an in-depth discussion about a porn movie’s plot.
