Jim Jones Signs with Roc Nation

After several fairly obvious teases on social media, the news many were expecting has been confirmed: Jim Jones has signed a deal with Roc Nation. It’s unclear whether or not the Dipset co-founder has signed as an artist to the label/management firm, but if I was going to guess, I’d say it’s probably one of those management deals that the company has been aggressively pursuing with artists over the last couple of years. With this agreement, Capo becomes the most recent artist, including Fat Joe and The LOX, to put aside very public, though long dead, beefs with Jay Z to get money with the Roc boss.

UPDATED: Yep, it’s a management deal. Jim offered the following statement to Billboard:
“As you get older you realize that most of your peers are either dead or in jail,” Jones said in a quote provided to Billboard. “The fact that we can move past the BS is a testimony [to] how much we have grown.”
