Jim Jones Blasts BET For Blocking Him From Attending Awards Ceremony
Jim Jones is mad at BET after they refused to allow him to attend the recent awards show, citing its COVID-19 policy.
“I was tryin to go to th bet hip hops awards and support my brother @fatjoe and this how a @bet handled me lol lol Dam @BET I thought this was th hip hop award show,” he wrote.
“Somebody tell @fatjoe I tried don’t want him think I ain’t keep my word told him I was comin But BeT says different mayb next time tear tht sh-t down joe They still talkin Covid and th cdc says ain’t no more Covid lol”
Fat Joe hosted and produced the awards show this year. The show will air October 4th.
“We’re going to celebrate music, culture, and entertainment, honor the biggest and brightest stars in the world and make this an unforgettable night full of laughs and surprises. Always remember that yesterday’s host is not today’s host,” Fat Joe told Billboard.
Jim Jones is an original member of the hip hop collective the Diplomats (also known as Dipset), alongside longtime friend and fellow Harlem native, Cam’ron.
Jones’ first major-label album Pray IV Reign was released in March 2009 by Columbia Records. The album spawned the hit single “Pop Champagne” (with Ron Browz featuring Juelz Santana). In April 2011, Jones released his fifth album, Capo, which was supported by the lead single, “Perfect Day” (featuring Chink Santana). He returned in May 2019, for his sixth album titled El Capo.
