Jim Jones became a player in the Tekashi 6ix9ine drama when 6ix9ine told the court that Jones was Tr3way and then prosecutors played a tape on which Jones discussed violating 6ix9ine with Nine Trey boss and former Byrd Game rapper Mel Murda.
In the aftermath of that info, 50 Cent and others suggested Jones had avoided the charges all the other Nine Treys were brought up on by talking to the government.
Angie Martinez asked Jones about getting the informant label slapped on him during a new interview.
"You never know that you're in the circus until you figure out you was looking at a clown," Jones said, echoing Ja Rule on Fif. "When the clown gives out information, everybody laughs. But for the most part, everyone knows I'm a substantial individual. I've been doing this for a very long time.
People don't read the facts, they read the Gram. It's a big difference, and people use the media to do what they do. They blow everything up out of proportion. But as far as my feelings. It doesn't' feel right. Of course, it took me somewhere else at the moment when I saw it, but then I calmed down, sat back, laughed at it, looked at the person who was dishing it, and thought about it. Thought about just as facetious as the person was, but that doesn't make no sense because then I'd be doing the same as he was doing ... I do say one thing. Where I'm from, real n***as don't do bullshit to tarnish people's name. You know what I mean? At all. That's not honorable. We don't got to talk about that too much. If you know me, you know me."
