Jim Jones Admits Getting Beat Down W/ COVID-19
The New York rapper is getting serious and stopping all the jokes, so maybe he’ll watch out for who gets on stage with him too. The hip-hop veteran has come forward to explain the seriousness of COVID-19 and reveal just how much it personally impacted his life after battling the infection.
Jimmy went to his Instagram page to speak out on his state of mind. He also explained how downplaying coronavirus ultimately came back to bite him.
“What’s up everybody. I was contemplating whether I should do this or keep my business to myself. But I think it’s more important for me to do this. I urge everybody to stay safe out there. COVID is real. You heard? I was running around here thinking I was Superman and COVID knocked the socks off Superman. So I urge and encourage anybody to just continue to mask up, please continue to hand sanitize, social distance as much as you can, you heard? Try to stay away from a lot of packed and crowded places. The sh*t is no joke. At all. You heard? I really felt it. And I don’t want anybody to feel like I felt. I’m not in charge of the FDC or anything, I’m not here to tell you to get your vaccination. I’m here to tell you to take care of yourself because this is very real. I’m grateful and I thank God that I’m back to getting healthy. I’ll see y’all soon.”
Jones also went to his caption to provide more details and reveal just how badly COVID impacted his own life.
“Super man is no match for covid please take care of urself out here mask up hand sanitizer keep tht wit u and say a prayer cause this shit is like a stray bullet it don’t care who it hits I’m grateful for all those who called to check up on me I’m negative and it’s time to get back Healthy God is good”
There’s no telling when and how Jones exactly became infected with COVID-19, however, Jimmy recently teamed up with Dipset’s Cam’ron and Juelz Santana for a publicized Verzuz battle against The LOX. The August 3 face-off appeared to be a potential super spreader location since it took place indoors and a majority of on-stage individuals performed maskless.
Coincidentally, attendee Fat Joe followed Jones’ message with a message promising COVID-19 was in the building. He was one of the only people shown on-camera wearing a face mask.
“Oh it was in the Building! God Bless i dont wish that on nobody But its there! #wearamask”
