Good music is good music, no matter what and Body Head is not just a label that will showcase my talent."Jones said that he was building his business based on the same philosophy he used to become a boxing champion- staying versatile."Just because a fighter is short or doesn't fight the style I fight doesn't mean he can't be the champ," Jones said.
