JIM JONES BIO:

Bronx-based rapper who released the #1 single “We Fly High” in 2006. He is one of the CEO’s of Diplomat Records and his fifth studio album, Capo, was released in 2011.

The 2006 album Hustler’s P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment) took him out of the background and into the spotlight thanks to the massive hit “We Fly High.” The track made it to number five on the Billboard Hot 100, topped their Hot Rap Tracks chart, and was adopted by the New York Giants football team as their unofficial anthem. By the end of the year a remix of “We Fly High” landed on Jones‘ holiday album A Dipset Christmas. The album Harlem’s American Gangster appeared in 2008, just as rumors of Jones‘ exit from Dipset began to spread. His other release that year, M.O.B.: The Album, introduced his Byrd Gang crew. In 2010, his “Salute” single featured a reunited Dipset, with both Cam’ron and Juelz Santana making guest appearances. A year later, that track landed on Capo, which peaked at number 20 on the Billboard 200. Multiple mixtapes followed into 2016, including his Vampire Life series and The Kitchen, which featured the singles “Finesse” with A$AP FergRich Homie Quan, and Desiigner and “Harlem” with A$AP Ferg. In 2018, he issued his seventh set, Wasted Talent (Vamplife/Empire), which featured appearances by JadakissMozzyYFN LucciBall GreezyYo GottiCam’ron, and more.

 

EL HITTA BIO:

Chicago rapper El Hitta spits hardcore rhymes with an off-key, sing-song style and steady cadence that recall the ’90s-era hip-hop of Mystikal and DMX more than the sounds of his late-2010s trap-favoring contemporaries. In 2018, he issued his official full-length debut, Owe Nobody Nothin, home to his hit single “Gang Nem.”

Rapping since he was a teenager, the young Hitta (originally known as El Hitla) was influenced by fellow Chicagoans G Herbo and Lil Durk. Following a stint in prison, he emerged revitalized and focused on a career in rap. Early tracks “Because,” “Hitla Style,” and “We Outside” helped him gain local underground traction, but it was the contemplative, piano-laden breakout single “Aww Yea” that secured his most popular output to date. Building upon “Aww Yea,” he issued raucous anthem “Gang Nem” with Prince Dee, which later landed on his official debut, 2018’s Owe Nobody Nothin (Groovy Gang/Dub Life).
