Trinidad Jame$ Responds To Joe Budden, Says He'd Rather Fight Than Diss Rappers

Trinidad Jame$ says he's "never going to diss" rappers on wax because he'd rather "throw these hands back and forth."

Trinidad Jame$ has responded to a comment made by Joe Budden in his "Lost Control" track. Budden commented on Jame$ in the selection by saying, "This ain't for bandwagon fans, sit y'all asses in the same spot / Y'all the same niggas made Trinidad Jame$ hot." 

"It’s all love," Jame$ said in an interview with King Bishop. "I make music to answer a lot of those types of questions. I don’t consider it as a diss. I’m from the streets so a nigga talking is like a nigga talking. A nigga punching, you don’t like me, nigga, you can fight me. That’s why I make the songs to let you know, if you don’t like me, nigga, you can fight me. I’m never going to diss you back, we gonna throw these hands back and forth. That’s all this is about. It's all love. I'm good."

Budden has addressed the matter on Twitter. 

Jame$ is not the first rapper to respond to Budden's "Lost Control." Joey Bada$$ also responded to a shot on the track, saying he was not moved by Budden's mention of being the only "Joey that's bad-ass." Bada$$ also called Budden "Joe Buttin" via Twitter.

  • Drake runs rap

    1) Age has a lot to do with it if you are young and stay consistent your fan base grows you sell more you break records you grow larger and more established 2) How many hot new artists since 2005 have came and had a big impact as drake in hiphop? How many have went double platinum and had countless hit songs like drake? no body 3) Who else in the rap game has a the buzz drake has right now? Drake is everywhere on the radio on youtube his songs get the highest views most dounloads he is the 1 talked about by mainstream music fans 4)Drake has officially set the record for most number one singles (10 total) on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Chart. And it appears that he has 2 Chainz to thank as their collaboration, "No Lie," just hit topped the chart. With this news, Drizzy passes previous record holder, Jay-Z, who had nine chart-topping cuts. Below is a breakdown of the top four artists in this realm. And just to note: the total number, like Drizzy's 10, for example, includes both his own tracks and those he appeared on as a guest. 1. Drake [2009] - 10 (3 Lead, 7 Collaborations) 2. Jay-Z [1995] - 9 (4 Lead, 5 Collaborations) 3. Lil Wayne [1999] - 8 (3 Lead, 5 Collaborations) 4. Kanye West [2003] - 6 (3 Lead, 3 Collaborations) There you go in 4 years he has had more chart topping hits than jay z and the rest of the vets so you are the 1 claiming false. 5)Drake sold 700k in the first week last album he dropped and he has gotten more popular eminem is a vet in the game but he has lost his buzz

    Does Wayne have the most most hip hop classics of all time? i will try to be resonable, but damn he really had one of the greatest runs in hip hop of all time unarguable classics: tha carter 2 Tha carter 3 like father like son no ceilings da drought 3 dedication 2 the suffix arguable classics: the dedication the prefix blow lilweezyana tha carter sq4 now thats 13 projects that have stood the test of time, which is essential for a project to be considered a classic. i mean the only artist/groups that i can think of right now is atcq, the roots, and yeezus but wayne still has more classics. i challenge anyone to show me a hip hop artist with more classics then birdman junior.

      Lil Wayne did have some good records & made an impact in hip-hop music, no denying that. Everybody was on his nuts when the Carter 3 dropped. If he died today, he'll most likely go down as a great & more than half the people talking shit about him now will be like, "Lil Wayne was dope! This this & that that, etc. etc." I'm just curious what your motivate is dentaldamboy. It's cool to be a fan, but you straight up idolize this guy like if he was god or something. Stop trying to live your life through some else & maybe people will respect your opinion a little bit more. You want a cookie or something?? You're not going to get any gold stars for be a troll homie.

    • No way this is a real argument

      your too dumb for normal society that is all.

    little troll baby ass nigga cant put bars on a track, thats the only reason why he wont respond.

    I kind of agree with him, rap battling to me has always seemed pussy, bunch of grown men arguing with each other who really gives a fuck lol I listened to beef records when I was in high school because that's what it is, childish shit. If you motherfuckers really got a problem with each other, mett up somewhere without cameras around and handle it, otherwise quit riding each others dick with that gossip girl high school Bullshit


      It's obvious that you don't know shit about hip hop history. If Trinidad Flames or 99% of these corny ass wannabe rappers can't respond in true hip hop fashion then all of their asses need to fall back, and I mean HARD!!!

    well he doesn't take it as a diss nor do i believe that joe was dissing him directly. and i hope trinidad really means that if you don't like him personally you can fight him instead of not liking his music because you think he sucks then you can fight him.

    As with numerous other comments here...... he wanna fight because he know he ain't got the bars to battle "Imagine if this era of hiphop had the responsibility of growing the culture like the early eras did...Hiphop would've been the "fad" that it was predicted to be back in the day. What a shame it has become" ^ co-muthafucking SIGN

    • yo

      but back in the day, the first rappers did it for the money. it really was a "fad" until people like Public Enemy came along. Sugarhill gang was a mainstream group back then. There's always been a dichotomy in hip-hop with the mainstream vs. underground.

    rather fight then diss because he has no lyrics , fucking wack ass bitch , hip hop dead

  • Bruce Jackson

    LOL it's not like Budden has anything to worry about

  • hahahahah

    TRANSLATION: "I suck at rapping and couldn't imagine having a shot at giving a respectable response to Budden, so I'll act like a tough guy instead knowing Budden has absolutely nothing to gain by fighting me" This is the reason that Kendrick's "diss" was blown up so much...rappers don't compete at rapping no more, they just juggle to entertain the fans like clowns. Imagine if this era of hiphop had the responsibility of growing the culture like the early eras did...Hiphop would've been the "fad" that it was predicted to be back in the day. What a shame it has become

  • Really??!!??

    Ummm what streets is this dude from? Who else from his hood is repping this? liars all liars. after Rick Ross gotta pass the flood gates opened. yall let a cop into hip hop and Trinidad James is the birthchild.

    • hahahahaha
