So, I feel that I do that as a human being. I know there is somebody out there that’s waiting on me to do what I’m supposed to do. It’s about making an impact on people’s lives. I feed off synergy. It’s rooted in helping others and building Spiritual bridges. It’s all about helping my people. People who identify with me, regardless of color. I feel like I’m a bridge, I may not know everything but I feel like I’ve been given a gift of perspective and I want to give it back.” Jones is currently working on a joint mix tape with a few artists and his follow up project.
