For his second cover shoot for the magazine, the Dipset member hit the stage at the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, N.Y., surrounded by tatted up rock chicks. Jones looks pretty rock 'n' roll himself, wearing a spiked vest and brandishing a microphone.
In the magazine, Jim discusses his new album 'Capo,' his appearance on the VH1 reality show 'Love & Hip-Hop,' the symbolism behind his ink and his relationship with revered tattoo artist Mario Barth, who has tattooed the rapper for years. The issue also features Mario Barth's experience at the Biggest Tattoo Show on Earth in Las Vegas, an interview with VH1's 'Basketball Wives' star Tami Roman and Atlanta Hawks guard Jamal Crawford.
Jim Jones last graced the cover of the magazine in 2008, appearing shirtless with tattooed model Crashington Coutois.
The 'Everybody Jones' creator's fifth album, 'Capo,' was released on April 5, which features guest appearances from Raekwon, Wyclef, Ashanti and Dipset partner Cam'ron as well as production from Logic and Aaron LaCrate, among others.
