Jim Jones Says Being A Rapper Is One Of The Most Dangerous Jobs!
These days there is so much haterism in the hip hop world between up and coming rappers its sad. There is a overflow of rappers trying to make it, and the sad thing there are some rappers who will do anything to get in no matter the cost. Dipset rapper Jim Jones weighs in on the disfunction and why being a rapper these days is one of the most dangerous jobs…
CelebnMusic247.com reports that Jim Jones is standing firm on his previous remarks that being a rapper is “the most dangerous job in the world!”
Following the shooting of rapper Lil Tjay, 21, in New Jersey earlier this month, Jim Jones, 45, offered sympathy and some words of advice. During a recent interview, the New York rapper was asked about his comments from two years prior in which he stated being a hip-hop artist is “more dangerous than being a soldier.”
Using Lil Tjay as an example, Jim Jones explained:
I stand on it. We have more rappers getting killed than we have weeks in the year. Shit, my prayers go out to Lil Tjay who just got shot up the other day, and I don’t even know his condition but, you know, it’s terrible out there. Every day they talk about a different rapper that just got shot or was involved in a shooting or something like that.
Jim Jones confidently reiterated “being a rapper in today’s society is definitely the most dangerous job in the world,” and suggested artists have a
50 percent chance of making it as a rapper and making it alive as a rapper.
The “Slide” rapper went on to suggest that money could be a motivating factor in some of the violence and killings against MCs.
I don’t want nobody to ever get that twisted. Rap and music make a lot of money. Matter of fact, these rappers couldn’t get to the other money that they’re making if they didn’t have the music that they have. Nobody would give a fuck about them if they didn’t have some music that the people loved, so you gotta think about that.
It was reported earlier this month, Bronx-rapper Lil Tjay was shot multiple times by a man named Mohamed Konate, on Wednesday (June 22) just after midnight. The ‘Run It Up’ rapper underwent emergency surgery following the shooting, and on June 23 the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office said he was in “critical but stable condition.” Today (June 30) it was announced that Lil Tjay is now making “significant progress” toward recovery and is “awake and alert” nearly a week after the shooting.
