Trinidad James

Golden Child

Article by Kathy Iandoli

Trinidad James’ success arguably felt like it happened overnight. The Trinidad-

born (hence the name) artist started his career with a handful of tracks last year. The one

cut that broke through the industry skin was the glowing “All Gold Everything,” citing

the various places you can find gold on his person, from his mouth to his wrists to his

neck and so on. The joint spread like wildfire, charting on Billboard’s Hot 100 and

becoming something of an anthem with the chant “Popped a Molly, I’m sweating,” an

ode to Rap’s latest drug of choice. And just like that a star was born, and Trinidad James

became a household name.

It didn’t hurt that TJ has one of the most eclectic styles presently in Hip-Hop.

With gold teeth, gold rings, tinted shades and a snapback (or bandana depending on the

day of the week) holding mountains of hair, Trinidad James brings a Rap Liberace swag

to accompany his energetic music. It wasn’t long before every rapper wanted to jump on

“All Gold Everything.” Artists including the likes of N.O.R.E., French Montana, Slim

Thug and Paul Wall all took a stab at the torch single. The winners for the official remix,

though, were T.I., Young Jeezy, and 2 Chainz who put on for their fellow ATLien and

showed the world how Atlanta gets down.

Now, Trinidad James is one of Rap’s most sought after artists. He inked a joint

venture deal with Def Jam at the close of last year, after much speculation over which

major label would scoop him up. The deal was rumored to be in excess of a whopping $2

million. In addition, TJ has his own label Gold Gang Records, with the title of CEO. His

debut mixtape Don’t Be S.A.F.E. (Sensitive As Fuck Everyday) dropped last summer, but

found its way to iTunes following his monumental success. Now, he’s currently working

on his debut album while touring and popping up on all of your favorite rappers’ tracks.

So, where does this leave Rap’s golden child? The sky’s the limit. In the meantime, grab

your gold chain, gold ring, and gold watch and show out for Trinidad.
