It is safe to say that Jim Jones released one of the most well regarded albums of the year when he released El Capo in May.
The rapper was gearing up for a brand new season of VH1's Love & Hip Hop: New York, in which he will be co-starring alongside his fiancee Chrissy when he became a trending topic after 6ix9ine spoke about him during his testimony yesterday (Sept. 19).
"Who is Jim Jones," the lawyer asked during examination. 6ix9ine answered, "he's a retired rapper," before claiming that he was a part of the Nine Trey Bloods.

Later in the testimony, the prosecution played a phone call which the rapper is allegedly heard speaking about 6ix9ine.
"He not a gang member no more," you can hear on the call. "He was never a gang member. They going to have to violate shorty because shorty is on some bull****."
Jones doesn't seemed to phased by the talk though. He showed up on Instagram hours after the report to show that he was staying focused.
"#Incaseyoudidnt we got busy at another hotel stay focus don’t let them side trac u from ur mission," he wrote.
He also retweeted comments from Rosenberg, reminding people about the positive talk on his album.
