Following the aftermath of 6ix9ine’s testimony, many members of the hip hop community shared their thoughts on the situation. During a sitdown with Angie Martinez on Monday (Oct. 14), Jim Jones stated he isn’t an informant, despite rumors that say otherwise.
“You never know that you was at a circus ‘til you figure out that you was lookin’ at a clown,” he said. “When a clown gives out information, everybody laughs. For the most part, everybody knows that I’m a substantial individual. I’ve been doing this for a very long time. People don’t read the facts, they read the Gram. It’s a big difference, you know what I mean? People use the media to do what they do. They blow everything up out of proportion, but, as far as my feelings? No, it doesn’t feel right.”
Later on, the popular radio host asked Jones about his feelings regarding 50 Cent’s Instagram post that insinuated he was working with the feds. “Of course it took me somewhere else at the moment when I saw it,” he began. “But then [I] calmed down, sat back, laughed at it, looked at the person who was dishin’ it. Thought about it. Thought about tryin’ to be just as facetious as the person was, but then it doesn’t make no sense.”
He continued, “I’d be doing the same thing he’s doing and that’s lightweight doing what we don’t like to do. I just leave it alone, but I do say one thing: Where I’m from, real n*ggas don’t do bullsh*t to tarnish people’s name. At all. That’s not honorable. We don’t gotta talk about that too much. If you know me, you know me.”
During 6ix9ine’s trial, the rainbow-haired rapper stated that Jones was a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. “He’s a retired rapper,” 6ix9ine said when asked about Jones. The prosecutor proceeds to ask the 23-year-old if he is a Nine Trey member to which 6ix9ine replies “yes.”
