Early Life

Jim Jones was born Joseph Guillermo Jones II in The Bronx, New York on July 15, 1976. One of three children of Nancy Jones and Joseph Guillermo Jones. Nancy Jones, his mother, is African American. His father was from Puerto Rico.

He was raised in Harlem by his maternal grandmother. Jones has two sisters, Precious and Keisha. He attended a local Catholic school and would often skip church and school to hang out at the local train station. He grew up with fellow rapper Freekey Zekey.

Jones had a troubled childhood and on one occasion was caught stealing from a store, prompting his expulsion from school at a young age. He was just six years old when he met Dame Dash, a big name in hip-hop and one of the future co-founders of Roc-A-Fella Records. As a young teenager, Jones also became friends with Cameron Giles, AKA Cam’ron. The two would go on to have a significant impact on each other’s careers as musicians.

Music Career

In the late ’90s, Jones and Harlem native Cam’ron, a childhood friend, formed the Diplomats, also known as Dipset. Before making his solo debut, he was known as Jimmy Jones, who was featured on Cam’ron’s albums – beginning with 1998’s Confessions of Fire – as well as on various Diplomats mixtapes and albums.

Jones worked out an independent distribution deal for his own output, reaching No. 18 on the Billboard 200 in 2004 with On My Way to Church, which featured the chart-topping singles “Certified Gangstas” and “Crunk Muzik.” Later in the decade, Jones repeatedly reached the Top Ten, first with his own second album, 2005’s Harlem: Diary of a Summer, and with his third and fourth solo albums, 2006’s Hustler’s P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment) and 2009’s Pray IV Reign.

The Hustler’s P.O.M.E.single “We Fly High” reached number four on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts, made it to number five on the Hot 100 and went platinum. “Pop Champagne,” released in 2009, became Jones’ second major pop hit, reaching No. 22. Jones’ guest verses and other collaborations grew in number each year, going far beyond the Diplomats and other close associates like the ByrdGang.

For example, he collaborated with David Banner, Yung Joc and Chris Brown for “Stuntin’ Is a Habit,” contributed to remixes by artists ranging from Beyoncé and Jazmine Sullivan to 50 Cent and Soulja Boy, and collaborated with Webstar for the duo album The Rooftop. During this time, Jones also took a senior A&R position at E1, the primary distributor of his commercial recordings.

Although Jones only released three albums in the 2010s, he still seemed to be working feverishly with mixtape releases, a plethora of collaborations and business ventures. He was also active in reality television, appearing in the first two seasons of Love & Hip Hop: New York before taking a supporting role in the spin-off Chrissy & Mr. Jones.

His 2011 album Capo entered the Billboard 200 at number 20 and was followed by a series of other tapes, including the Vamplife series. The sixth and seventh solo albums Wasted Talent and El Capo (not to be confused with Capo) were released towards the end of the decade, in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

In 2020 and 2021, activity ramped up again with projects such as The Fraud Department (with Harry Fraud), Zooo York Giants (along with Champ Da General) and an extension of DJ Drama’s Gangsta Grillz series, Gangsta Grillz: We Set the Trends.
