Jim Jones Talks “Swagger Like Us” Remake, Says T.I.’s Swag is Fabricated

jim-jones-hip-hop-honors.jpg

“No one on the corner got swag like you we don’t Rocawear that’s for fags like you.”

The homey Joe over at Complex recently sat down with the Capo and got some info on the remake of “Swagger Like Us” that he’s doing with Wayne, Juelz and Chink Santana. He also speaks on the original and what he perceives as a lack of swag on the part of some of the MC’s who spit on it. Hit the jump for some gems.


On Jay-Z’s recent Vibe cover:

Tell me who Jay-Z looks like in there? Did you see the picture of him? With the Louis Vuitton scarf and all that. Who did that resemble? You can say it. But he did it wrong; he had a Gucci belt with a Louis Vuitton scarf. Who does that? You smell me? That’s like wearing one Nike and one Puma; how you going to get away with that?

On T.I.’s “swag”

I don’t feel like he possesses any swag. Not like that. It’s fabricated. They’re watching other people, then they try and do it. You know people that dress like T.I.? You know people that go out and say let me get a T.I. outfit or do you know people who say “yo, you’re looking like Jim Jones?” Which one? Lemme hear it! When the bitches want to fuck you and the niggas want be like you, who got the swag?

Jim says he’s putting “Jackin’ Swagger From Us” on his new album as a bonus, so it should be leaking shortly, but in the meantime, Complex actually has a snippet of Wayne’s verse.

    No offense to old Jimmy boy, well forget that offense to this clown, I never seen anyone wearing anything like that on their heads. Unless you’re Muslim, then you’re a woman. He wishes his albums would blow like Muslims.

    Says Wayne’s the only dude with swag. Wayne is phony. Says he doesn’t read or write, then writes a blog on ESPN and says he read 402 comments.

    Dudes are lame. Don’t do drugs.

    Unless, it’s that Kush no doubt.

  20. BabyDoll Says:

T.I been dressing the way he does since “dope boyz” from the street wear to the suits, he wanna talk about taking styles, he got wayne on the song, first he stole gillie & philly fashion, then he rocked throwback with soft toe reebok’s, then he started dressing like ya’ll, where is his style? He had on red pants on the “A Millie” video, smfh

    *Turns up Max B & Young Jeezy “The Reccession”*

    ^Initially, I didn’t like this shit either, but every verse on here is proper, except waynes. I would have to say that TI and Ye are tied for the best verse, with Hov third.

    It took some time for me to appreciate it, but after several listens, you can’t help but feel the fire in this shit.

    As for Jimmy, I can’t knock his hustle. SInce he tightened his jeans and started rocking out, I can’t front, I’ve seen all sorts of people dressing similar to him. But lets not get it twisted, this whole swagger thing… Who gives a fuck.

    I’m a little too MATURE to give a fuck of what someone thinks of the way i dress and carry myself. If I wear a button up and blazer, its not cuz Jay did it. I can never see myself wearing tight jeans, but if i did, its not cuz Jimmy or whoever did it.

    Jimmy is just looking for attention and what better way to get it than to clown Jay and everyone else.

    >>Jim has to feel some type of way because no body was talking about swagger before this nigga; all that swag, splash, no homo, wavy type shit I all ways looked at as dipset slang. (none)

    Dips definitely brought the term Swagger to the forefront, but I credit Cam over anybody else.

    Terms and phrases Cam has popularized in just the past few years:

    swagger/swagger jacker
    old head
    Curtis
    hot summer
    get my pool in the back

    Curtis – true

    hot summer – Mofo’s was saying “its gonna be Cold Winter (so wrap up in your quilts and warm blankets)” a long time ago…this is just a play off that.

    ^Co-pilot.

    I don’t like Dusty Braids, but he literally changed the game and made it cool for street dudes/thugs/hooligans/etc., or anybody that wasn’t a so-called “hipster”, to rock regular fitting clothes and feel comfortable about. Baggy fits came to a halt:

    -the snug thermals (I rock them shits too, AND I don’t work out, lol)
    -regular fit jeans
    -v-neck tees
    -the god forsaken wallet chain (that skateboarders and goths BEEN rockin)
    -the skulls & bones (not a good look for many reasons), swords, fire, etc. printed on tees
    -glitter belts

    I really don’t find any of this a big deal… the only problem is that he’s not wavy enough to keep the movement goin’.

    ^So basically Jim Jones just appropriated Skater/Punk/EMO white boy culture and brought it to rap. He killed hip hop.

    ^In all fairness, how is changing the dress code killing hip hop? We went through many phases and it’s only inevitable for it to change for it to evolve. You might not LIKE it, but I don’t see how it’s detrimental:

    80’s = tight ass pants/jeans, leather hats/pants, no strings in shoes, Euro-centric gear

    early 90’s [New Jack Swing/afrocentric movemnt] = extra baggy clothes, RBG attire, HBCU hoodies, African medallions, combat boots

    mid-90’s[grunge era] = Carhartts, lumberjacks, Goretex, Nauti’ sweats, leather bombers, camoflauge/fatigue

    late-90’s [Black brands] = Sean John, Fubu, Maurice Malone, Sir Benni Miles (LOL), Mecca, Triple Five Soul, etc.

    early Y2K’s = jean suits, velour suits, throwbacks, other shit I can’t remember

    now = schmedium thugs and hipsers

    At what point did fashion have any influence on what type of music was being put out? How does having on True Religions and Nike Boots kill hiphop? Explain.
