Jim Jones had the rumor mill buzzing yesterday thanks to reports that he was involved in a physical altercation in his native Harlem. But speaking to radio personality Miss Info about the situation, Capo said he wasn't looking for drama and was actually the victim of a "botched robbery."

"I was in Harlem, alone, when three men stepped to me," Jones said. "The first guy, I beat the sh** out of him, then the second guy jumped in with a metal pipe. I was so amped up I didn't even feel him hitting me with it."

The Dip Set rapper said it wasn't until a gun made an appearance that things came to a head.

"I was still putting a beating on the first guy, but when the third guy pulled out a gun, I got out of there. I left. Anyone with a brain would do the same.”

Jones said the robbers were most likely after his jewelry, which he admitted he probably shouldn't have been wearing while out in the street at night in the neighborhood.

"That was a stupid mistake. I know that. I'm human and that's where I slipped up. It won't happen again."

Despite the attack, Jones said he went right back to the studio and continued working on an upcoming mixtape. He tweeted a photo of himself smiling in the studio, which he says was taken after the fact.
