Jimmy Jones, a Baltimore club music legend known for his 1993 hit “Watch Out for the Big Girl,” died of kidney failure Tuesday at Good Samaritan Hospital.

Jones was 50-years-old and had been a fixture at local legendary clubs Odell’s, Fantasy, Paradox and Indigo.

He released much of his material on Unruly Records, a Baltimore label.

“At the time, he was one of the main masters of ceremonies — the guy on the mic, doing shout-outs and hyping the crowd,” said Grant Burley III, who is known as DJ BooMan. “He had a really good voice. He was the guy who got the crowd excited.”
