Jim Jones Says Supreme Owes Him A Percentage of Their Company

In 2006, a Supreme shirt which featured a photo of Dipset bros Jim Jones and Juelz Santana wearing Supreme shirts was all the rage among the streetwear set.

12 years later, Jones is wondering why he didn't get a piece of the billion dollar company for the shirt.

"They owe us piece of th company rappers n my black people had no idea wht supreme was we didn't even know wht they was they had tht bag and they new who dipset was lol," Jones argued on IG.

From what we can gather, Jones was paid 14 grand for the photo shoot that produced the shirt. But he didn't get any residuals.

"We might’ve had the hottest T-shirt they ever did, but they ain’t paying homage," Jones told Complex in 2016. "The way I take is that it was a business deal. It was great for the moment but I ain’t get no residuals off of it. You know what I mean? They ain’t paying me no money off of each shirt that they sold, so it is what it is."

Does the Jones of 2018 have a point about being owed a piece of Supreme, or has he become confused about how business works?
