Mike Jones took part in an interview with AT&T blue room, where the rapper talked about his late grandmother and dedicating every album to her, being “a regular guy”, his biggest musical memory performing at the BET Awards, how his success is bitter sweet because of his grandmother’s death, his ‘American Dream’ album and movie, buying Thanksgiving turkeys for the community, and other charitable efforts for those less fortunate.
Jones said he’s influenced by Jay-Z, explaining, “He came from nothing to something. Everybody came from nothing to something, but with Jay he relates to people like me. When I talked to him a few times, when he came out a lot of people weren’t hollerin’ at him either. He came out with a different sound that people were afraid to get behind. But once it blew up, everyone wanted to get down with the sound. That’s how I was in a way. I had a screwy sound that people were not familiar with. They were afraid to take a risk with it. But when it blew up, everybody was walking around, jamming stuff slow. Some people are afraid to take risks.”
Jones then took off to a photo shoot, complaining about a really really tight do-rag and showing off his Ice Age Entertainment chain – which he dropped $500,000 on. Video at attblueroom.com has since been removed.
