Jim Jones paid a trip to The Breakfast Club Friday to offer clarification behind his super viral Pusha T remarks ... but he didn't bend to social media pressure and switch up his stance.
Jim Jones and Trent Clark don’t think Pusha T should be on the 50 Greatest Rapper list. Bootleg Kev and Jinx disagree. What do you think?pic.twitter.com/idR0Sll3NW— Carl Chery (@carlchery) April 7, 2023 @carlchery
Jim was a recent guest on Spotify's RapCaviar podcast with TMZ Hip Hop's Trent Clark -- and they both agreed Pusha didn't belong on Billboard's Top 50 list ... with Jim going so far as to suggest Pusha's coke rhymes were essentially fairy tales.
Proud Pusha fan Charlamagne Tha God grilled Jim about his opinion -- and the Dipset rapper reiterated he meant no malice behind his comments but doubled down that Pusha's music never influenced or swayed him.
Jim then quizzed everyone's ability to rap along to either Pusha or his top songs when put on the spot, with the majority siding in Jim's favor. It might have been a skewed case study -- TBC's filmed in NYC, giving Jim a clear home court advantage.
DJ Envy spent considerable time in Virginia for college but openly admitted he hasn't memorized Pusha's tracks all that well, so there's that.
Jim ended the convo reaffirming his actual love for Pusha and didn't want his spicy commentary to be taken the wrong way -- a confirmation TBD until Pusha officially responds!!!
