Max B Reveals The Real Reason Behind His Beef With Jim Jones In New Interview From Prison

“That sh*t don’t mix well and next thing you know, sh*t we beefing.”

Harlem MC Max B’s prison release is among us within the next year or so, and he’s already dropping some content.

  • Ahead of his release, a new clip was unveiled on YouTube this Monday (Mar. 9). It seems the documentary will give fans a glimpse into the Harlem rapper’s relationship with Jim Jones. As Complex noted, Max B was instrumental to the formation of the ByrdGang Collective, however, him and Jim ended up having a falling out that spiraled into a feud between the two. Their tension went on for years before they finally reconciled with one another. 

  • During a recent interview from the jailhouse, Biggaveli revealed that their tension with one another came down to a matter of their egos clashing. 

    “I think two egos was just coming together, two big personalities,” he explained in the clip. “I wasn’t there for that — I was just happy to be involved, just in the game. I’m never tryna come take nobody’s sh*t. I’m in my own world, b, I’m an existentialist. I like to do my own sh*t… it was just egos clashing, a lack of respect, a lack of everything. That sh*t don’t mix well and next thing you know, sh*t we beefing.” 

    Biggaveli added that he felt that him and Jim would’ve been handled much differently if they were grown. 

    “It should've went a different way,” he continued. “I think today, we would've handled the situation different. But, we was young. We was all crazy.”


  • This clip arrives amid speculation that the Vigilante Season is poised to make a return to music once he’s a free man again. In 2019, he released “Hold On” featuring French Montana. A few months later, he announced via Instagram that his original 75-year prison term he was sentenced to in 2009 had been reduced to 12 years, which places his release date sometime in 2021.
