Jim Jones Reportedly Signs to Roc Nation

Jim Jones’ relationship with Jay Z stems back to his days running with The Diplomats, and it hasn’t always been pretty. In fact, since Cam’ron’s early 2000’s career peaks, which came while he was a Roc-a-Fella artist, Jones has been publicly critical of Jay, prompting Jay to respond to the Harlem rapper in 2006 on a remix of his hit single “Ballin.” In an interesting turn of events, however, it appears that Jones has signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label.

“It’s a done deal,” says Roc Nation’s Vic Medina on Instagram. “Jim Jones/Roc Nation.” The image is of Jones signing paperwork with a Roc header at the top, at Roc’s headquarters per Medina’s post. Traditionally, new signees to Roc Nation, be them athletes or artists, take a commemorative photo with Jay, but such a picture with him and Jones hasn’t yet surfaced. Jones is the latest of a string of artists sprouted from the late 90’s and early 2000’s to sign to Roc Nation, following The Lox, Fat Joe and Yo Gotti.

It’s a done deal… Jim Jones/Roc Nation. #rocnation #vamplife

It’ll be interesting to see what this does for Jones’ relationship with Jay, especially considering he was featured on a diss track aimed at the Brooklyn mogul as recently as 2 years ago. Doubly interesting will be how Jones’ career is handled moving forward. Since his breakthrough albums, Hustler’s P.O.M.E. and Pray IV Reign, the latter of which was released in 2008, Jones hasn’t had a solo single chart on the Hot 100, and his 2016 album, The Kitchen, was the first of his studio albums to not chart on the Billboard 200.
