Dipset's Jim Jones has addressed his recent controversial Twitter comments towards artists like Fabolous and said he sometimes enjoys playing devil's advocate.
According to Jones, Twitter allows him to speak freely on his observations.
"Twitter's a great platform for people to get things off they chest," Jones explained in an interview. "You know me, I'm a little bit of an instigator sometimes, I like to stir confusion sometimes. I hope I don't ruffle nobody's feathers or panties or anything, sh*t like that man. We just having fun out here man. You heard me? It's all love. It's like Kool Moe Dee and LL Cool J. I'm LL though. [laughs] Shout-outs to Red Cafe. Shout-outs to Red Cafe, shout-outs to Bad Boy. Shout-outs to Diddy. I didn't even know he jumped into [my situation with Fabolous]....I don't spar, it ain't no scrimmage. It's a line of scrimmage. Anybody passes it, that's your a**." (Industry Muscle)
Earlier this month, Fabolous denied being in a full-fledged Twitter beef with Jones.
"I don't know where his comment came from," Fab said. "I joked around with it too. It was kinda subliminal. I think it's definitely competition. But you can say things -- it gets taken out of context whether you meant it as a joke or not. It could have been his opinion, but it still was thrown the way he threw it. It could have been taken in the context of you taking a shot at somebody. But I had fun with it, I made some jokes. That's it. I'm not looking at it as I got a really big problem or East Coast/West Coast beef. I cracked a couple of jokes about it. I'm not making a diss record about it. The point I'm in, I'm focusing on career. I'm branded as an artist. I'm almost 10 years in the game. Twitter dissing isn't important. My last mixtape states where I'm at -- there is no competition. That's on Twitter as well." (MTV)
Jones recently caught Fab's attention after a reference was tweeted regarding his new "Body Ya" music video.
"I just seen another rappers video tht look just like me chain gang n scarf dam I'm sonnin these n*ggaz I gues my style might body ya lol wht," he wrote Tuesday (March 30) afternoon. "RT @ChrisLuck83: these n*ggas mad I think cuz he found out he was @jimjonescapo son when he was wishin it was jay who forgot to wear a r New app on iPhones .. jimjones How to get fresh 101 ... free scarf n belt included lol owwwwww lmao G.O.R in Harlem now Can I atleast get a thnku for gettin ur Twitter acct poppin lol I'm out I quit I quit pow pow play dead lol" (Jim Jones' Twitter)
Fab responded two hours later with his own Jones references including the rapper's 2006 hit single, "We Fly High (Ballin')" and 2008's "Pop Champagne."
"Oh so it's time 4 subliminal tweets huh?? Ok cool..#TellMeWhyUMad I'm mad cuz it's over for that ballin.... Brooklynnnnnnnnnnnnnnn," Fab wrote. "#TwitterRules If u wanna get at me, @ me...
