The rapper recently talked to SOHH about life after a near-death car crash last January.
"Um, that's a funny thing, man," Jones told SOHH when asked if his life perspective has changed since the near-fatal car crash. "When sh*t like that happens, immediately off top you re-evaluate a lot of things that's going on and sh*t like that. And then for some reason, I found myself doing a 120 [miles per hour] on the highway the other day. It's the fast life, let's go." (SOHH)
