Rapper Jim Jones said his mother taught him how to tongue kiss during an appearance on a podcast.
The former Love & Hip Hop: New York star appeared on Angela Yee’s Lip Service podcast, where he claimed his mother was very open when it came to teaching him about sex.
“I learned my sex education from my mother. She told me everything about sex,” the 45-year-old shared. “My first condoms, everything like that. My moms taught me how to kiss when I was younger.”
Angela Yee then asked the Dipset rapper to elaborate on how his mother instructed him to “tongue kiss.”
“It wasn’t no instructions; she showed me with her mouth,” Jim responded.
Yee appeared shocked, uttering: “she kissed you?” Jones quipped back, “That’s my mother”, adding:
“She showed me how to tongue kiss when I was younger, my mom was 17…she a baby. Look at all the babies that’s having babies now and look how they act with their babies, it’s like they have a little sister or brother more than they have a child.”
Angela then changed the topic revealing that she thought it was weird the first time she kissed, to which Jim Jones replied that he found it strange the first time he kissed a girl but not when his mother showed him.
The comments went viral, with most expressing shock and concern that the rapper was unknowingly a victim of abuse.
Others expressed their revulsion at hearing the revelation.
