Jim Jones and New York City Mayor Eric Adams plan to help Harlem

Jim Jones got the chance to meet the mayor of New York Erik Adams on Drake’s Apollo Theater concert, and they plan to discuss efforts to improve Harlem.

The pairing happened on Sunday night (January 22) during the second night of Drake’s back-to-back shows at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York. Jimmy shared a video of the two talking in his dressing room, and fans can see the rapper exchanging his phone number with the mayor to plan a future meeting.

“Having the chance to meet @nycmayor,” Capo wrote. “I got a call from a friend who said he was coming to the concert last night and he wanted to stop by my dressing room to meet me. Very flighty I thought to myself. I also thought to myself how can I make this introduction the most impactful.

“This is the first time I’ve met a mayor from New York and he’s a black mayor, which I’m very proud to see someone who looks like me in a position of power and taking the step to help turn the city around from experience and political position.”

The Dipset member explained that even though he’s not the most politically correct person in town, he still cares about his neighborhood with everything he’s done for it over the years.

“I’m not the most politically correct because I know politics as usual,” he said. “I chose to think about my community, Harlem, there are so many things we need here in our city, Harlem, NYC, and who else better to voice those concerns to.

“And I know these concerns won’t be solved overnight, but every step forward is a step closer Harlem is always on my mind and in my heart, but I’m 1 person, we have to do it together, each and one teaches one @gohardboyznyc @goharddance_harlemnyc .”

Mayor Eric Adams was just one of the many guests who showed up to Drake’s Live From The Apollo concert series this past weekend. New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge, Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin DurantSuper Bowl champion Odell Beckham, Jr., Lil Yachty, Michael Rubin and more were on hand to watch Drake tear up the stage.
