These past several months have seen Jim Jones releasing some of the best music of his career. Back in November, the Dipset general unveiled El Capo (Deluxe), an upgrade of his 2019 release that altogether boasted a healthy 31 tracks with assists from the likes of Juelz Santana, Vado, Maino, Dave East, Conway The Machine, Fred The Godson, Fat Joe, Rick Ross, Cam’ron, and Curren$y, among others. Last month, he followed that with The Fraud Department, a collaborative effort with famed beatsmith Harry Fraud — further keeping his foot on the game.
This past weekend, Jones reached back to El Capo (Deluxe) to deliver a new music video for “A Monster Made It,” a Heatmakerz-produced single that sees him rapping about his success, detractors, and more:
“It’s almost like they want me dead or incarcerated, it feels like, nobody is happy that a monster made it, ‘cause I been, shittin’ on niggas, it’s like I’ve been constipated, that four door or a brand new coupe is what I contemplated.../”
Shot by StreetHeat’s Will C. and Capo himself, the accompanying clip shows Jones basking in his wealth, showing off different cars and plenty of jewelry. He can also be spotted playing a game of chess on a life-size board, matching the subject matter on the soulful cut.
“Most of [the] independent [that] own they masters don’t even have a clue [what] really a master is or [what] it means or even how to cash in on ur masters ... I here a lot of artist mentioning this as if it’s bragging rights ... First off industry is compiled wit way more Indy artist [than] major artist ... so [that] means there [are] plenty of artist who own there own masters n don’t realize it”
