Everything that glitters is NOT gold. But rap artist Trinidad James assures listeners that everything that IS GOLD…IS HIS. The Trinidad-bred, hip hop storyteller and “Gold Gang” godfather swiftly emerged from the mines of Underground Atlanta in 2012 with the straight-forward anthem “All Gold Everything.” The swaggering single immediately introduces James’ passion for loyalty, women, style, (his hate of wannabes), and of course GOLD.
James’ garb and jewelry are a bit larger-than-life, but his lyrical diary is far from exaggerated—flashing poetic license to mesh his psyche and life experiences to create a hard-hitting music catalog. Introducing innovative styles to the fashion and music industry, the independent trend-setter, Trinidad James, no doubt has the Midas touch.
In December 2012, Trinidad James was signed to Def Jam Recordings which includes a joint venture with his own Gold Gang Records. "We're excited to welcome a young talent like Trinidad James to the Def Jam family," said Label President, Joie Manda. " Trinidad James represents the cutting-edge of what's happening in the culture today. We are thrilled to have him at the label, and look forward to growing his already massive buzz."
