Jim Jones still thinks it's dangerous to be a rapper
Jim Jones made some infamous remarks a few years ago that being a rapper is one of the most hazardous occupations in the world. With Lil Tjay recently narrowly escaping death in a New Jersey shooting, Jones holds his stand that being a rapper means putting one's life in line.
“I stand on it,” Jones recently told HipHopDx. “We have more rappers getting killed than we have weeks in the year. Shit, my prayers go out to Lil Tjay who just got shot up the other day, and I don't even know his condition but, you know, it's terrible out there. Every day they talk about a different rapper that just got shot or was involved in a shooting or something like that.”
The Harlem rapper maintained that “being a rapper in today's society is definitely the most dangerous job in the world,” and added that rappers have a “50 percent chance of making it as a rapper and making it alive as a rapper.”
