On Monday (June 9th) Jim Jones a long with crew members, Byrd Gang hosted a listening party for their new album, ‘Jim Jones Presents M.O.B: Members of ByrdGang’.
My Jim Jim is so articulate, so sexy (watch how he rolls up that blunt)….the man is just gorgeous….. (Call me Jim!)
However Jones needs to start being honest with himself. His off shoot group Byrd Gang isn’t going to fly. Within a year every group member will leave disgruntled, blaming him because their careers failed to take off like promised.
We have seen it all before. Established artist forms off shoot group/crew/click made up of ex-felons, hailing from different boroughs, who happen to have the ability to spit a nice sixteen but not much else.
Members then spend the duration of their time making guest appearances on the head geezer’s projects, but never release a single/album of their own.
Then it soon becomes clear that these artists are far from marketable, and the music downloading public has no interest in them.
Their careers then ultimately hit a brick wall.
Come next year every single Byrd Gang member will be holed up in some non-descript studio, collaborating on a Jim Jones diss record….
Watch listening session footage below….
Damon Dash, who seems to turn up for the opening of a paper bag these days, introduces my Jim Jim.
