Harlem native and Dipset co-founder Jim Jones has made his foray into sports franchise ownership with his stake in the American Arena League’s Richmond Roughriders who recently had one of its players signed to the NY Giants of the NFL. Capo sat down with TMZ to express his adulation for former UCLA product, offensive lineman Malcolm Bunche standing at 6’6, 320 pounds.
“This is a great feeling,” Jones said of Bunche’s signing. “I’m smiling, man. I’m smiling! Smiling! Smiling!” Jones believes this signing is just added motivation for his players and the rest of the AAL that the league can be a feeder to the NFL. “This shows that it’s very much possible. More than possible.”
