“Jimmy is an inspiration… He’s a total gentleman and a true individual. I want people to know he’s the original b boy, and 100% UK! Zero irony, 24/7. We do this everyday! I relate to him so much, he reminds me of my Granddad (my Granddad was a boxer/ market trader/cook, a total East End wideboy, always on the con/hustling/double hard) He wouldn’t stand for any bullshit. Gold bling, chain smoking, but above all the kindest heart and a magic way of connecting with others on a human level. Zero ego, total bad boy. Know yourself. Be yourself. Don’t let anyone fuck with you.”
