Jojo Simmons Speaks Up After Skull Gang Confrontation

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Jojo Simmons is not that innocent anymore. The son of Rev. Run of Run-D.M.C. (and star of the former MTV reality show "Run's House") is showing off a new, tougher image. In a new viral video, the sometimes rapper and his friends talk about his jet-setting life, in which all he does is, apparently, is "count money and f--k bitches."

Earlier this year, it was reported that one of Harlem's Skull Gang members, Hynief, ran up on Jojo for dissing Juelz Santana. Photos of the assault quickly made their way online. When asked about the incident, the Team Blackout rapper says he has no comment and "isn't really into the violence." He explains, "I aint' been around that thug or that gun sh-- all my life, that's not what I do. What I do is I count money, and I f-ck b-tches, and I travel the world, and that's what I do. I'm not on that violent sh--."


Though Jojo has been largely quiet on the music front, his younger brother, Diggy Simmons, has made a name for himself in hip-hop last year. After releasing his debut, Unexpected Arrival, Diggy famously threw jabs at rapper J. Cole for allegedly disrespecting sister Vanessa.
