The Dipset veteran Jim Jones has sat down with XXL to talk the the epic reunion of another rap group making their run in the early 2000’s, G-Unit and says that they have gained momentum with their comeback. Jones also discussed the A$AP Mob, stating that although he respects what they’re doing, they are not from the streets, nor nothing like The Diplomats. Check out his full statement here!
“They weren’t from the street, they’re a good group of kids and they’re artistic, but they’re not from the street and their style is way different than what we do. It’s a little bit far out there for me. We got bonafide swag and the definition of get fly, ya dig? I’m not trying to disrespect them—A$AP Mob is doing it, they got their numbers and they’re doing what they like to do—but they’re nothing like the Diplomats. They didn’t come up hanging and banging and hustling and really touching the pavement, ya dig? It’s a big difference. We don’t wear kilts and we don’t wear tight sweatpants and funny sneakers. That’s not our style. Price point and high fashion don’t really make it cool. I’ll still go in Wal-Mart and come out and niggas will still think it’s Versace.”
