The relationship between Jim Jones and Max B has always been a bittersweet one. Ten years ago, Biggavelli was signed to Jones’ BrydGang records. The wavy one wrote Jones’ biggest hit today “We Fly High (Ballin’).” After some beef over show money, and studio time, Max B left ByrdGang label and joined Amalgam Digital. All of his was happening will Max B caught his case and from it we caught a few classic diss records like, “Touched It in Miami.”
Years later, Jones is finally telling what he thought went wrong in his relationship with Max B and his superstar potential with Elliott Wilson and B. Dot on the Rap Radar podcast.
“I put a lot of money into that boy pocket,” Jim says in an interview with Rap Radar. “He had a chance to do, be as big as Drake right now. A lot of these artists right now that are singing and being very melodic, a lot of that came from that boy’s whole catalogue. Wiz Khalifa will tell you right now that he studied his music word-for-word and took a lot of his wave. We all make our decisions. It’s just sad sometimes.”
In 2009, Biggavelli was sentenced to 75 years in prison after being found guilty of murder conspiracy and robbery. He will be eligible for parole in 2042.
Jim Jones just released his 14-track mixtape The Kitchen with guest verses from Kevin Gates, A$AP Ferg and Dave East, and more. Watch Jim Jones’ full interview with Rap Radar below.
