New York rapper Jim Jones isn’t ready to dig into last week’s publicized drugs and gun possession arrest. The hip-hop veteran has explained why he’s staying close-lipped on the headline-generating incident.

According to Jimmy, his legal muscle has advised him to stay mum on the situation but did admit he wanted his son to know what went down before it reached the media outlets.

I’ve been advised by my lawyer, I can’t talk about the case. What I can say is that, one of the things that concerned me the most was… I wanted to get home before my son woke up. So that I could speak to him before he seen it anywhere else, because my son is my partner.” (“The Angie Martinez Show”)

Last week, Jimmy hit up Instagram and low-key attempted to simmer down the negative press.

The same day, a report claimed Jones found himself in handcuffs after cops stopped his entourage in the Peach State.

According to the Sheriff’s Dept., instead of stopping, the car accelerated and cops gave chase. During the chase, the car struck a deputy’s vehicle … and finally stopped. We’re told Jones and three others were in the car. After a search, deputies found marijuana, oxycodone, Percocet, vape cartridges, THC oil, 2 loaded pistols and cash … which Jones called “just petty cash.” One of the pistols was stolen, according to cops. Neither Jones nor his friends admitted possession of any of the items … but Jones said he had a prescription for the Oxy and Percocet pills. Jones also told cops he told the driver to pull over, but she was acting “incoherent.” (TMZ)
