By the looks of his rap persona, Jim Jones loves being the center of attention. When his longtime girlfriend, Chrissy Lampkin, revealed the new VH1 series was initially created for Jim Jones, it shocked fans of the rapper. Jim Jones is known for going after Jay-Z on several occasions, mainly for the attention, but he turned VH1 down.

"Love & Hip Hop" premiered on VH1 last week. The show has become another fan favorite. Instead of focusing on Jones and his family, it focuses on the women in hip hop. Former G-Unit songstress, Olivia, along with Fabolous' girlfriend, Emily Bustamante, Somaya Reece, and Lampkin, of course, star on the show.

Jim Jones explained he does love being the center of attention when it comes to the rap game. While he could be a part of a reality show, he could not have it expose his family life. Usually, when a celebrity of his nature lands a reality show, their family life falls apart. Instead, Jones asked VH1 to allow Chrissy Lampkin to have a starring role in the show.

Jones said if they created a show around her and some other women in the hip hop world, he would give the show his full support.
