Dipset rapper Jim Jones continues to make headlines with reports claiming he gave orders on an assault toward a concertgoer earlier this week in Boston.
Despite the hype surrounding Jones, the Diplomat rapper insists he did not have a fan roughed up.
Jim Jones is adamant ... he did NOT instruct members of his crew to go into the crowd at a Boston concert and rough up a moronic fan ... even though the fan threw a drink at his head. After some pushing and shoving and screaming ... security rushed in and broke it up ... and the cup-thrower was thrown out of the show. TMZ spoke with Jones ... who tells us, "I would never instruct people to jump down from the stage ... I wish it wouldn't have happened." (TMZ)
According to reports, the incident all happened over an object getting tossed at him.
During the Tuesday night show at the Middle East nightclub, a fan threw a drink at Jones' head. After stopping the show to see who the cup-thrower was, several dudes from Jones' camp jumped down into the crowd and tried to confront the concert-goer. (Global Grind)
A day prior to the incident, Jones was arrested on a suspended license charge.
Jones, 35, was busted in his old uptown stomping grounds, riding in a black Audi sedan, police said. The "We Fly High" emcee was collared by NYPD officers in front of the Grant Houses in Harlem, on W. 125th St. near Amsterdam Ave., police said. The arrest was first reported by TMZ.com. Jones' New Jersey license is suspended, police told the Daily News. He was issued a desk appearance ticket and released shortly after the 3:20 p.m. collar. At 6:45 p.m., the rapper tweeted: "Back on these streets #vampin I love my city." (New York Daily News)
