Jim Jones and DJ Drama teamed up last month to create a mixtape entitled “We Set The Trends.” The “Batman” video from the project has just been released today (February 9), which features VL Deck. Shula The Don and Jones directed the video. See the lyricists playing in the ring preparing to take over the streets of Atlanta in Gotham-style in the video below.
The We Set The Trends project was accompanied by a 25-song collection that featured the Migos-assisted title track in addition to contributions from Fivio Foreign, Dave East, Icewear Vezzo, Pressa, Maino, Rah Swish, Fabolous, and more. In the past, he has collaborated with Harry Fraud on the album The Fraud Department, which featured 11 songs and features contributions from Dave East, Belly, Maino, Jay Worthy, Curren$y, Conway the Machine, French Montana, and more.
Aside from being a studio producer, Jones has also been putting in work as a featured artist, appearing on tracks such as Papoose “King Kong,” Peter Rosenberg “Snake Eyes,” Benny the Butcher “Longevity,” Young Stoner Life and Young Thug “Mack Truck,” Dave East “Money or Power,” Curren$y “The Beach,” and DJ Kay Slay “Rolling 110 Deep.”
Jones discussed how much the person would have to spend in order to obtain a verse from him:
When I ask artists for $10K, their response is that it depends on the circumstance. Occasionally, I will accept $6K, $7K, or $10K. The niggas may only get money for eight bars; I may charge them $4K for eight bars. I might charge them $5K for a hook if they say, “I just want one.” I had a guy pay by layaway for a verse.”
