Joseph Guillermo Jones II (born July 15, 1976), better known by his stage name Jim Jones (formerly Jimmy Jones), is an American hip hop recording artist. Jones, an original member of hip hop collective The Diplomats (also known as Dipset), is also the co-CEO of Diplomat Records, alongside longtime friend and fellow Harlem-bred rapper, Cam’ron.
Jones is also a noted music video director under the pseudonym CAPO, having directed videos for artists including Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, Remy Ma and State Property.
In 2004, he released his solo debut album On My Way to Church. The release of his second album, Harlem: Diary of a Summer in 2005, coincided with Jones landing an executive position in A&R at E1 Music. A year later he was on his third album Hustler’s P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment) (2006), which spawned his biggest single to date, “We Fly High”.
The song reached number five on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). He is known to live the “Fly & Flashy” Lifestyle.
After Cam’ron’s latest stabs at Jim Jones, Jim sits with Funk Flex and has a very detailed and vulnerable conversation.
