During Jim Jones‘ recent appearance on Full Size Run, the Dipset Capo pushed his weight around mightily. On the topic Supreme, Jim Jones contends that he and Juelz Santana likely made the streetwear brand a cool billion f the back that iconic Dipset t-shirt that reportedly earned them a meager payment $14,000 each, without any residual privileges written into their agreement. Just the one day shooting.
Incidentally, that didn’t stop the Dipset rappers from participating in future product launches with the brand. In 2017, Juelz was the poster child for the Timberland x Supreme launch a 6-Inch Premium Waterpro Boot. Interestingly enough, Jim Jones was asked to comment on the emergence the Nike Boot, which he unsurprisingly credited to Harlem and its fashion-oriented epicenter 125th and beyond.
“This is going to be very controversial, but the Nike boots with the Air bubble at the bottom, they started in Harlem. All facts,” Jones told the three hosts. Noted sneakerhead Wale was then brought up in passing seeing that his interest in “Nike Boots” manifested into an actual song.
Jim Jones was having none it. He then proceeded to critique Wale’s “boo boo” sneaker choice, with little regard for decorum, yet no ill-will whatsoever. Jim Jones is simply a Harlem essentialist: brash, confident, and unafraid to speak his mind. It wouldn’t take long for Wale to clap back with a video repost titled:”Jim Jones wellin like shyt.. yes WELLIN.” Jim Jones would eventually provide receipts for his claims, but only after Wale doubled in firepower with an adjacent Insta post. Harlem and Washington, DC, will continue to do battle over sartorial supremacy, until the cows some sauntering home.
