Jim Jones Says Rappers 'Need To Do The Streets Or Do Music'

In his recent Breakfast Club interview, Jim Jones had some words of advice for young rappers... the streets or the studio.

"I've come up different, so for me preaching to them…I wanna give them the proper advice. I'm just trying to give you a fair warning of things that could happen if you keep going in that direction. If you wanna do music, one of these things you're gonna have to put down, it's not gonna add up," he said. "You're either gonna do the streets, or you're gonna do the music. Because it never mix, it never works. I've never seen nobody do that successfully, as we can see with so many examples in front of us."

Jim added: "There's no protection for the artists anymore," he said. "I stand on what I said, being a rapper is the most dangerous job in the world. Some of the biggest artists that we've seen come out this game are getting gunned down, due to street violence and things like that." 

Several rappers have been killed over recent months, including Young Dolph, Drakeo the Ruler and Slim400.
