During a chat with HipHopDx, Jim Jones was asked if he thought it was his Dipset clique that influenced Lil Wayne to start flexing the rock star look he became known for.
Jones said he did, and give special credit to Juelz Santana for making Weezy the fashion plate he is today.
“100 percent. Well, Wayne spent the whole summer with us,” Jim began. “We spent the whole summer with Juelz pretty much. He just adapted all the styles. He pretty much knew what he was doing. He knew what he needed and sh*t like that to persevere in this game. And that was to be able, you know to get an identity shift and shit like that. That’s what he did and shit like that. You dig? They had a different way of moving and dressing coming from the South and Him being blood to correlation affiliation. Us being very drippy and sh*t like that. It was natural. It happens like that. He continued, "Most people that hang around us end up moving in one accord and sh*t like that, which is not a bad thing. If I was around some n*ggas like us, I would try to move like that, too. These n*ggas looking kind of smooth, they fly, they gangsters, you know what I mean. So shouts out to Wayne, shouts out to the whole Cash Money and sh*t like that.”
Do you think Jim Jones and company are responsible for Tunechi's drip?
