In a recent interview with Vibe magazine, Harlem rapper Jim Jones shared his thoughts on Kanye West and Jay-Z’s collaboration album Watch The Throne, admits that Jay-Z is one of the nicest to ever do it and gives an update on Dipset’s upcoming mixtape.
On Watch The Throne.
“I ain’t gon’ front, on the last few tracks, Kanye had been getting the best of Jay, and that’s just from a fan’s point of view,” Jones told Vibe on Thursday (Jan. 6). The Harlem rapper has had a long-standing feud with Jay-Z, and recently patched up differences with Kanye West, contributing to the G.O.O.D. Music/Dipset posse cut, “Christmas In Harlem.”
“Whatever it is, they both goin’ to be sharp—trust me,” Jones says before hearing “H.A.M.” “It definitely ain’t gon’ be a one-way street. It should be good for music, good for hip-hop, as long as they don’t start rapping about too much strange shit.”
