Jim Jones and the rest of Dipset participated in an epic Verzuz battle against The LOX earlier this month. Held at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater in New York City, the packed event provided an evening of powerful nostalgia as both veteran groups ran through their biggest hits.
But it looks like Jones paid for it with his health. According to a recent Instagram video, the 45-year-old rapper previously tested positive for COVID-19 and is urging everyone to take the pandemic seriously.
“I was contemplating whether I should do this or keep my business to myself, but I think it’s more important for me to do this,” he said. “I urge everybody to stay safe out there. COVID is real. I was runnin’ ’round here thinking I was Superman and COVID knocked the socks off Superman.
“So I urge and encourage everybody to please continue to mask up, please continue with hand sanitizer, social distance as much as you can, try to stay away from as many packed and crowded places. This shit is no joke. I really felt it and I don’t want nobody to feel like how I felt.”
Jim Jones also further implored people to stay cautious in the caption, adding, “Superman is no match for covid please take care of urself out here mask up hand sanitizer keep tht wit u and say a prayer cause this shit is like a stray bullet it don’t care who it hits. I’m grateful for all those who called to check up on me. I’m negative and it’s time to get back Healthy. God is good.”
