Dipset rapper Jim Jones has become more known in his later years for his turns on the VH1 franchise Love and Hip-Hop, appearing alongside his longtime paramour Chrissy Lampkin. Their tumultuous and hilarious ups and downs have provided entertainment in the past, but it seems as if Jim has hit the skids – with resurfaced reports of him losing his home.
Ever since Tekashi 6ix9ine mentioned Jim Jones’ name in his own previous court trial, it seems as if Jones’ reputation may have taken a tumble. He was called out for not sticking to the “street code” when it came to Tekashi’s “snitching.”
During his interview with The Breakfast Club back in 2018, rapper Troy Ave spoke subtly about the case while condemning the mind frame of “street cred.” Since the release of a single “2 Legit 2 Quit,” the rapper himself had similarly been accused of snitching on podcast personality Taxstone, who is in jail on murder charges. “I’m only loyal to my fam / Middle finger from the stand / It’s either me or you,” Ave says on the track.
On his own podcast, Troy Ave claimed that rapper Jones should have stuck to the street code if he was really true to it and taken out 6ix9ine for being a witness against others and Jones’ friend Mel Murda, who was also caught up in Tekashi’s case. Tekashi claimed during his trial that Jim Jones was also a member of the Bloods gang that he was turning witness against.
“If n—as are talking about the streets and street codes and s–t, well, what should happen, technically, is Jim Jones should have him [handled] because he sent Jim Jones’ man Mel Murda to jail,” said Troy Ave. “It’s messed up. We’ll see if it happens. I’ll say the streets is a myth, ain’t nothing gonna happen. It is what it is.”
Never silent herself, his partner Chrissy is yet “clapping back” at folks who still feel the need to weigh in on her once very public 16-year relationship to rapper Jones.
Posting a picture quoting Jay Z and Beyoncé’s “’03 Bonnie and Clyde,” Lampkin highlighted the love of her life with the lyrics, “All I need in this life of sin is me and my boyfriend.”
Balancing an approval comment from Jones of “Fax, u make me look good,” and negative comments about her lack of a ring, Lampkin quickly shot back at her followers.
“Yeah my boyfriend,” she wrote. “Motherf—– married don’t have what we have but y’all lonely motherf—– wouldn’t know nothing about it.”
In a follow up comment, she said, “What is wrong with y’all that’s lyrics to a song and now you’re trying to make it my life,” she added. “I’ll get married when I want to.”
One wonders if Chrissy’s attitude may have changed, since it seems the pair has lost the very home in which they’ve taped their reality show over the years – since they hadn’t paid their mortgage since 2010.
The New Jersey mansion they was lost to foreclosure and sold at a sheriff’s sale or just $100 in September of 2019. According to Bossip, when the couple bought the home in 2006, they took out a $680,000 mortgage with a 6.875 percent interest rate. This left them with a monthly payment of $4,467.
After making various arrangements to catch up payments, in the end they were unable to prevent the foreclosure from happening.
