In a post shared on Instagram, Jim Jones referred to Drake as the fifth member of Dipset following their guest appearance at his two Apollo Theater shows.
“Official 5th member of Dipset,” Jones wrote alongside a clip of Drizzy showing off his The Diplomats jacket backstage. “U did tht thnku bless up to the whole #OVO.”
Drake brought out the iconic New York City rap group during both nights of his Apollo Theater shows, and he even sported Cam'ron's famous pink fur coat during the first night. He was gifted a OVO and Dipset bracelet by Jim Jones to commemorate the occasion. “These guys right here from Harlem made us dress different, talk different, walk different, rap different—all the way in Canada,” Drizzy said of the group as they left the stage. During their guest performance, they performed some of their most beloved tracks including “I Really Mean It,” “Dipset Anthem,” and “We Fly High (Ballin’).”
Jones has notably been a longtime supporter of Drizzy, and last year he revealed that he passed on the opportunity to sign him early in his career because he thought he was merely an actor “in a wheelchair on the Disney channel.“ He added that he quickly learned he underestimated Drake. “Once again, I just wasn’t seeing past what I seen in front of me,” he said. “Weezy was smart enough to do so, and I remember being on another tour in the back of the bus and hearing Weezy and Drake rapping and Drake saying something about Princess Diana and it’s going crazy. I’m like, ‘Wow, life is crazy. This n***a is dead nasty, fuck what he look like.’”
