Jim Jones

New York rap vet Jim Jones had a Christmas Day scare, when he and his family escaped from his mother’s burning house.

He took to social media and said he was “blessed with the greatest Christmas gift in my life”, before reminding fans of the value of family.

“Today I was blessed wit th greatest Christmas gift in my life thus far and tht is my family gettin out of th house safe sound n wit out injuries,” Jones said. “We can always buy new houses new cars new evrything but we can’t buy a new family. On th flip side watchin my momma house burn touch my soul in ways I couldn’t imagine [sic].”

Jones also vowed to buy his mother the “biggest house” he can afford… and fill it with “more love”.

“The devil is always workin but so is my God I got faith,” Jones said. “Merry Christmas.”

It’s good to hear the Jones family is safe.

In related news, Jones appeared in the video to Dipset’s reunion single “Once Upon a Time”. The group is currently prepping a new project and documentary. Details are still unclear.
