A Good Deed Denied

- By Bossip Staff

Lyrical content is the culprit behind Jim Jones’ performance cancellation at HIV Testing Day event in Jersey City. Here’s what the Mayor’s office had to say about the matter:

“Mayor Healy has always been a proponent of positive outlets for our youth and a strong gun control advocate,” Morrill told AllHipHop.com. “Mr. Jones’ lyrics speak of violence to women and police, of the drug trade and guns, and other activities that Mayor Healy could not endorse by sponsoring an event featuring Mr. Jones.”

Wow. A brotha tries to do some good (for a change) and this is what he gets? Peculiar indeed.

    Do you see that scully running from his funk?

  • steph78

    I can testify to the fact that he doesn’t stink. Brotha may be a little rugged, but he doesn’t stink…anywhere:)

  • Mitchell Harris

    What do you mean mean “and this is what he gets?” Why are you ignorant negroes always advocating for other ignorant negroes to be and promote ignorance? Just because a drug dealer gives away a few turkeys at Thanksgiving doesn’t exonnerate him from his culpability in the deterioration of the neighborhood. You ignorant negroes better start reevaluating your values, because when they are always decidedly in favor of claiming “negativity,” your extinction is not far away. Fools.

    TOLD Y’ALL…I TOLD Y’ALL LAST WEEK WHEN SOME OTHER STORY CAME OUT ABOUT ROBBING OR WHATEVER THAT HE WOULD BE CANCELLED! PLEASE THEY KNEW JIM JONES LYRICAL CONTENT WHEN THEY ASKED HIM TO DO IT!!! THEY HEARD ABOUT THAT THUGGING HE WAS DOING AND FELT THAT IS NOT A GOOD EXAMPLE….I TOLD Y’ALL!!!

  • bree is an OBAMA supporter.. YES WE CAN!

    ok so he can’t perform, but i’m sure the monetary donation was accepted…

  • Blacksmith

    Maybe he did have something to contribute. Why should he be typecast like that? How do we know he doesn’t know or have someone in his life that was affected by HIV and now wants to speak about it or perform something positive on the issue?

    I’m not a Jones fan, per say, but I don’t judge rappers on the content of their lyrics, only. David Banner raps about the same things (women, sex) but he is one of the few rappers that can actually form a sentence and speak about political issues (Katrina and his charities, voter registration). Nas and Ludacris speak out as well and they were also banned or dropped from commercials (Bill O’Reilly) because they were judged on lyrical content only.

    As humans, we are not 1-sided. Most of us are multifaceted.

  • Blacksmith

    We shouldn’t be defined by our jobs or positions in life. But that’s what happening in this situation.

  • lil latte

    He does look like his feet always stink even with clean socks and shoes…

  • http://yahoo.com intuitivepisces

    Could an active member of the Klan expect to be invited and well-received at an event which promotes non-discrimination and tolerance?

  • bree is an OBAMA supporter.. YES WE CAN!

    Blacksmith

    he is directly affected..i believe his uncle and/or cousin died from HIV
