Last night, there were alot of rumors of a brawl involving Jim Jones at Detroit’s Club Esko….
There were rumors that a gang of people rushed the stage, beat up Jim Jones, shot 3 people, including one of Jim’s friends and a woman partygoer. (twitter accounts posted after the jump)
Well this week me and DJ Envy are covering for a vacationing Ciph and Rosenberg on the morning show, so I asked Jim Jones about last night’s drama directly….

Here’s a link to the Detroit news report which infers that one of the shooting victims was local artist, Trick Trick.
“Detroit police said 2 people were injured in a shooting at a Detroit nightclub early Monday morning.
Ten men rushed the Esko Lounge on Michigan Avenue near Shelby Street, according to Detroit police. The men got into a fight with rapper Jim Jones and shots were fired.
Two men were hit, including a man police identified as…rapper Trick-Trick, whose real name is Christian Mathis…
Local 4 confirmed Mathis was taken to the emergency room at Detroit Receiving Hospital. He is in serious condition. The other man’s condition is unknown.
Police are looking for the gunman.”
Thank you to the sharp-eyed readers like Kaoz who sent over this report from Detroit’s Mojo 955….Trick Trick denying that he was shot last night.
“We called Trick-Trick, he was NOT shot. In fact, we woke him up and talked to him in bed. He denied rumors that he fell victim to gun shots, nor was it his brother. The rappers mother called WDIV-TV asking them to stop running the story.”
