Jim Jones Recalls Encounter With Louis Farrakhan At Hip-Hop Improv Show
On Friday, August 2, Jim Jones was featured in the Hip-Hop Improv Show – TAKE IT PERSONAL presented by Hot 97′s Cipha Sounds and Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), the top improv theatre and school in NYC. Improvisers from Cipha Sounds’ team “A Tribe Called YES” (Abra Tabak, Anthony Atamanuik, Brandon Gardner, Christian Capozzoli, Phil Jackson, Lydia Hensler, and Ryan Karels) reenacted stories originally told by Jim Jones.
During the show, rapper Jim Jones told the audience how he nearly died because he dissed Farrakhan in a rap song as well as how Ma$e first taught him how to rap. “Jim Jones might have been the best guest we have had so far. He told a story about Farrakhan that was the funniest story I have ever heard. Also, Jimmy jumped on stage with us and did some improv… TURN DOWN???? For what!,” said Cipha Sounds.
Special Guests included Chrissy Lampkin, Rae Holliday (StuffFlyPeopleLike), Keith Nelson (AllHipHop.com), Chaz Kangus (HipHopDX), Drewski (Hot 97), Willy Dope (Par-City), and more.
