Hip hop legend Jim Jones has been dubbed a hero after performing a life-saving act, reviving his friend and photographer.
Inside Edition initially reported that the Harlem-born rapper and entrepreneur performed CPR on Jerry Flete, better known as Flee Flicks, after he unexpectedly collapsed, while the two were in Florida for a cryptocurrency event for Jones Capo Coin.
“We [were] just literally just hanging out on a break from work. It just happened so fast. Basically, I woke up [and] Jim [was] giving me chest compressions and telling me, ‘Wake up. Wake up.’ He basically saved my life. I’m here today because of Jim,” Flete informed the outlet’s Stephanie Officer.
Jones added, “I just saw Flee sitting, just going through something that didn’t seem good. Like he was choking. He couldn’t breathe and his eyes [were] going back [into] his head. He was catching a bit of a seizure. [And] I actually didn’t know what was going on. [It] kind of scared me.”
The Dipset capo said he mastered CPR at the age of twelve.
“When I was younger, I had to take these classes for CPR and all that type of things for my little sister who has a heart condition. They needed the whole family to take these special classes before she came home when she was a baby. I think all [of] those classes stuck with me to this day because I remember everything vividly they told me to do in certain situations,” he stated.
The close call has prompted both men to pay better attention to their health.
Jones later rushed to Instagram to share the Inside Edition’s story and encourage his fans to acquire the CPR training.
“God is good who else gone capture me when I b havin th Shit on lol 😂. On a serious note I encourage everyone to get cpr lessons for u n th family,” he said.
Jim is apparently working on a new album by the name Prime 112, a reference to the eatery where the Dipset rapper allegedly got into a confrontation with Freddie Gibbs last year.
