Jim Jones, one of Dipset’s original members, has several projects in the works for this summer!
After the release of their new single “Splash,” Jim Jones and his fellow Byrd Gang members (Chink Santana, Sandman, Oshy, NOE and Mel Matrix) will drop a full-length album entitled M.O.B. (Members of Byrd Gang).
The album is due to be released on June 24th.
In addition, Jones is preparing a solo album for an August 19 release through Columbia Records. Jones’ childhood friend and business partner, Dame Dash, recently went on the record calling the Byrd Gang front man’s major label debut a “classic.”
“His new album, I think he might have come up with a classic, and that’s me saying that,” Dash said in a recent Internet video.
Dash and Jones have been working together on “The True Jim Jones Documentary,” which traces Jimmy’s life from his early days as a Catholic School kid from the Harlem streets to a “full blown superstar and business mogul.”
The documentary about his life and career will be released two weeks before his solo album, on August 8th.
