It was only a few days ago that Jim Jones had dropped a new single titled “Cook Out.” The single, which is backed by Hitmaka and features Vado, samples Marvin Gaye’s classic track “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)”.The song features vivid descriptions of a typical summer function in New York City:
Also included in the package is a matching video, which Jones directed alongside Flee Flix and Shula The Don. With the same energy as the song, the clip depicts Vado and Jones at the intersection of W 112th St and St. Nicholas Ave. That’s where you can find Jones and Vado eating good food and enjoying good vibes. A number of peers make cameo appearances as well, such as Rowdy Rebel.
The year 2022 has been a prolific one for Jim Jones, beginning with the release of his Gangsta Grillz: We Set the Trends mixtape that he produced with DJ Drama. A total of 25 songs were featured on that project, including songs by Icewear Vezzo, Fivio Foreign, Migos, Dave East, Giggs, Pressa, and more. In the following months, he would collaborate with Brooklyn’s own Maino on the joint album The Lobby Boyz, which featured guest appearances from Capella Grey, Young M.A, Styles P, BLEU, Fabolous, and Benny The Butcher.
