Harlem Hip-Hop artist and reality TV personality Jim Jones revealed a little tidbit earlier this week on a popular podcast that has people scratching their heads as it became a trending topic on social media Thursday.
Rapper Jim Jones, who is a member of Harlem, NY-bred Hip-Hop group, Dipset and has starred on several reality TV shows (Love & Hip-Hop, Chrissy & Mr. Jones, Marriage Boot Camp and, Jim & Chrissy: Vow or Never) was a guest on The Breakfast Club‘s Angela Yee‘s podcast, Lip Service earlier this week. What started as an innocent conversation turned into a bombshell revelation when Jones admitted to Yee that he learned how to “french kiss” from his mother, Nancy Jones AKA Mama Jones. Directly from her mouth to his!
“My mom taught me how to kiss when I was younger,” Jones says.
Yee then asks him, “What was the instructions?”
Jones replies, “There wasn’t no instructions, she showed me with her mouth.”
To which a perplexed Yee responded, “She kissed you?”
“It’s my mother, what do you mean?” he states as if that’s a normal thing.
Jones then says, “It’s my mother. … She showed me how to tongue kiss when I was younger, my mom was 17, she was a baby. Look at all the babies that’s having babies now and look how they act with their babies, it’s like they have a little sister or brother more than they have a child.”
After that video (Below) and podcast aired, social media went crazy. Many people who commented were not only shocked by his admission but most started to say that the behavior Mama Jones has been displaying for years on the reality shows she has appeared on makes more sense now. Instead of being the protective mother, some have gone as far as accusing her of treating Jim more like a boyfriend than as a son.
The backlash was immediate and the Dipset rapper returned to his Instagram account to “set the record straight” as he claims he was joking about the way he learned how to kiss.
“Knock it off enjoy th laugh stop takin life so serious” he writes on the post. He then blames the circumstances surrounding his revelation on the media and says they “take something so simple” and turn it into a headline. He then says that his childhood was better than “ours” as he was “raised to b a respectful young man by nothin but queens.”
He pulls back on what he stated in the podcast in the video clip and states that “for the record, it was a joke.”
