After contracting COVID-19, Jim Jones is now warning others to take the pandemic seriously. On Monday (Aug. 16), the Harlem rapper took to Instagram to urge everyone to take the proper precautions as the Coronavirus pandemic continues to rage throughout the world.

“I was contemplating whether I should do this or keep my business to myself, but I think it’s more important for me to do this,” he said. “I urge everybody to stay safe out there. COVID is real. I was runnin’ ‘round here thinking I was Superman and COVID knocked the socks off Superman.”

“So, I urge and encourage everybody to please continue to mask up, please continue with hand sanitizer, social distance as much as you can, try to stay away from a lot of packed and crowded places,” Jim added. “This shit is no joke. I really felt it and I don’t want nobody to feel like how I felt.”

The Dipset emcee continued by saying that he is not trying to pressure anyone to get vaccinated, but he just wants everyone to take care of themselves. In the caption of the video, he stated that he has since tested negative for COVID-19. “I’m grateful for all those who called to check up on me,” he wrote. “I’m negative and it’s time to get back Healthy. God is good.”

Earlier this month, Jim took the stage with the rest of the Dipset members to go head-to-head against The LOX in a Verzuz battle. The two hip hop groups performed their top hits in a packed venue live from the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden. The LOX and Dipset are also set to go on tour together this fall.

The REVOLT team would like to wish Capo a speedy recovery. Check out his Instagram video below.
