Jim Jones together with his childhood friends and fellow Harlem breed Cam’ron and Freekey Zekey formed the rap group “The Diplomats” aka “Dipset” in 1997, two years later in 1999, they were joined by Juelz Santana. The group in 2001 signed a recording deal with Def-Jam and Jay-Z‘s Roc-A-Fella Records. Under the labels, they released their debut album which they titled “Diplomatic Immunity Under”. That was in March 2003; the album featured appearances from Master P.

Following a feud between the group leader Cam’ron and Jay Z, the group signed with a different record label called Koch Records now E1. In November 2004, under Koch, they released the second studio album “Diplomatic Immunity 2”. The group members following a feud went their separate ways but settled their differences in 2010 and have since been working together.

In 2001, Jones and Cam’ron founded record label Diplomat Records of which they both serve as co-CEOs. The label releases its music under independent label E1 music and counts rapper Lil Wayne among its roster.

They have been dating for 11 years but have never been married. However, that is soon to change with their new reality TV show “Jim & Chrissy: Vow or Never” which premiered on September 1, 2016. The WE tv show will focus on the couples as they plan their wedding ceremony.

Even as the two have been together for almost as long as many people can remember, they do not have any children together. Nonetheless, the rapper has a son, Joseph Guillermo Jones III who is better known as Pudie. His mom is not known, but what is known is that he is definitely not of his father’s fiancée. There have as well been rumours that have been circulating for a very long time that the rapper might have had a daughter, and according to the claims, Young M.A could be the daughter. The female rapper’s mother is known, but her father is not known.

Tragedy struck Jim’s family on Christmas day of 2017 when his mom’s house got burnt down. The consolation at the end of it was that everyone came out fine, and the rapper promised that though it broke his heart, he was very grateful that no one was hurt and he was going to get for his mom the biggest house he can afford.

Why People Think Jim Jones Is Dead

Jim Jones

At the mention of the name Jim Jones, the minds of many Americans unconsciously recall the notorious cult leader Jim Jones who died from suicide on November 18, 1978. However, there is another Jim Jones, a rapper who is still alive.

There are a lot of people who sometimes, get confused and think that Jim Jones is dead. This is because of the confusion between him and an American religious leader who also bore the same name in the 1970s. The religious leader was responsible for the death of close to a thousand people in a mass suicide case. Nevertheless, the rapper, Jim Jones isn’t dead.
