Dipset's Jim Jones recently talked about making a name for himself on the small screen and named the biggest misconception about reality television.

In Jimmy's opinion, the perception of reality TV has changed in recent years due to society's interest in the popular format.

"The biggest misconception used to be that it was the wrong thing to do and for people who were washed up in other careers to try to reinvent themselves in other careers. Well, yeah, every year I try to reinvent myself, and I've reinvented myself so much that every person's trying to do reality TV right now. Reality TV accounts for over 60% of all television, so I got to be doing something right out here." (HHDX)

Back in December, Jones' finacée and on-screen reality television co-star Chrissy Lampkin was involved in an off-camera brawl.

"Love & Hip Hop" star Chrissy Lampkin was arrested early this morning for allegedly bloodying up a girl at a New Jersey bar ... not exactly a stretch, right? Edgewater PD tells TMZ ... Lampkin was popped around 2:30 AM for aggravated assault and disorderly conduct ... we're told it was bad enough that the victim required hospitalization. She was bloodied and doctors had to stitch up the area above her eye. (TMZ)

A few months ago, Chrissy said Jimmy had started to show some real growth in their relationship.

"I think Jim has become more mature and more comfortable with the fact that it's OK to grow up. I think he looks forward to doing things differently now, and I think he's a happier person for it," Chrissy said in an interview. "I've become more patient and more relaxed." (XXL Mag)

In 2013, Jones and Chrissy were finally engaged after years of dating.

Rapper Jim Jones has become engaged to his girlfriend of seven years. The hip-hop star popped the question to his longtime partner Chrissy Lampkin at a restaurant in Miami, Florida and the proposal was shown on U.S. reality TV show Love and Hip-Hop. After accepting a ring from the star, Lampkin told viewers, "The fact that my Jimmy knew that it was the right time to do things, it's priceless." (National Ledger)
