Englewood, NJ – As most people were waking up to presents on Christmas morning (December 25), Dipset vet Jim Jones was counting his blessings after learning his mother’s house had burned down. The seasoned MC took to Instagram on Monday to post a video of the chaotic scene in the Englewood, New Jersey neighborhood.
“Today I was blessed [with the] greatest Christmas gift in my life thus far and [that] is my family gettin out of [the] house safe sound n wit out injuries,” Jones captioned the video. “We can always buy new houses new cars new evrything but we can’t buy a new family.
“On th flip side watchin my momma house burn touch my soul in ways I couldn’t imagine,” he continued. “I wasn’t raised wit my mother but my son was and his whole life of memories gone in a flash If u know me then u know I’m gonna buy my family th biggest house I can afford and fill it wit more love The devil is always workin but so is my God I got faith Merry Christmas.”
In the video clip, a visibly shocked Jones wonders if there was a higher power at work.
“Maybe this is a time to be closer together anyway,” he said. “We might needed that. I don’t know if that is the price to pay for that, but they say god does everything for a reason.”
