Beyonce and Dipset rapper Jim Jones both have something in common.
The 35-year-old rapper whose fading Hip Hop career peaked in 2006 with the release of his only hit (“We Fly High”) is being accused of ripping off one of Canadian rapper Drake’s leather jacket designs.
The two jackets do look very similar when placed side by side. The only difference seems to be the fur trim on the hoodie.
Drake recently released his limited edition OVO CDN bomber jacket which retails for a whopping $4,000 USD! The jacket features luxury buffalo leather, a silk-linked interior and a detachable fox fur trim along with real gold-plated hardware. According to Punchbowl blog, the jacket is available for purchase beginning on December 28, in Drake’s hometown, as well as in New York, Tokyo and Osaka.
Now Jim Jones is also hawking a black leather bomber jacket for $175, made from cheaper materials with a design that is similar in almost every detail to Drake’s limited edition OVO jacket.
Is this just a mere coincidence? Not really. According to my sources, the producers of ‘Love & Hip Hop‘ may have encouraged the similar jacket design to create tension between Jim Jones and Drake, which in turn boosts ratings of the show.
A loyal reader tipped me to a cryptic tweet written by Drake on Twitter.com days ago. The tweet dated Dec. 17, says only “Somebody is playing games on here…stand by.” The reader believes the Emo rapper directed his mysterious tweet at Jones for ripping off his jacket designs.
Meanwhile, Jones now spends his days pretending to be hard for the reality show cameras while designing “candy shop” jackets with his 40-year-old mother substitute, Chrissy Lampkin, and his castrating manager, Yandy Smith.
