It is a tragedy that still rings bells to this day, as in 1978, Jim Jones murdered over 900 people by giving his followers a drink laced with cyanide.
Complex reports that the cult leader’s body was found dead in the same year with a gunshot wound in the head. An autopsy would later reveal that Jones’ cause of death was suicide.
Of course, social media took no time in making comparisons to Jim Jones the rapper. Known for his songs such as “We Fly High” and “Pop Champagne,” Jones recently was apart of Verzuz a few months back with his fellow Dipset camp against The Lox. Twitter users got creative with memes with pictures of Leo DiCaprio’s face on Jim Jones‘ body while joking about a potential Dipset biopic. Then, fans started tweeting some of their favorite moments of the rapper Jim Jones that they would only hope Leonardo DiCaprio would recreate.
Jim Jones reposted one of them on his Instagram Story. Perhaps, he’s not entirely against the idea of an Oscar-award-winning actor bringing Dipset’s story to life in the future.
