Jim Jones said that he thought he was “superman,” but that didn’t matter to COVID-19. The rapper was hit hard by the pandemic and he can attest to the fact that COVID is very real.
After contracting the virus, Jones jumped on Instagram and he urged fans to mask up and stay safe out there. He contemplated keeping his personal business private, but the 45-year-old veteran of hip-hop instead decided to share this very important message.
“I was contemplating whether I should do this or keep my business to myself, but I think it’s more important for me to do this. I urge everybody to stay safe out there. COVID is real. I was runnin’ ‘round here thinking I was Superman and COVID knocked the socks off Superman.”
“So, I urge and encourage everybody to please continue to mask up, please continue with hand sanitizer, social distance as much as you can, try to stay away from a lot of packed and crowded places. This shit is no joke. I really felt it and I don’t want nobody to feel like how I felt.”
The Dipset emcee continued and said that he’s not pressuring anyone to get the vaccine, but they do need to be safe. It is a scary and unpredictable world out there, and Jones dealt with a terrible situation, one which he luckily survived.
Thankfully, Jones also revealed that he is now COVID-19 negative. Our thoughts go out to anyone suffering from a terrible situation due to this awful pandemic.
