Trinidad James Clarifies New York Rap Statements On Twitter

Trinidad James says "NY doesn't support NY" on Twitter.

Trinidad James posted a series of Twitter updates today (November 13) regarding his thoughts on New York Hip Hop following commentary that the Southern region runs New York musically.

Trinidad's Twitter updates note that he "didn't disrespect." The rapper also said that New York does not support New York Hip Hop and named several artists in New York that he said were less famous than Rap Radar's Elliott Wilson.  

Trinidad spoke about New York Hip Hop during a recent concert, as reported today (November 13). 

“I remember when New York ran this shit, dog,” Trinidad said. “When Dipset was fuckin turned the fuck up. Oh my God. I gotta wear my bandana on tilt like Juelz. What the fuck happened, dog? What happened? I remember when New York rap was the shit. And us in the South, us bammas, we was like ‘what the fuck’ and we just did our own thing. But now we run y’all musically. That’s crazy. That’s crazy. That’s crazy, my nigga. That’s crazy. I’m not trying to start nothing, but if you want to do something we can do something cause I don’t give a fuck. I looked up to New York music. And now every nigga that’s really poppin’ out of New York, you might as well tell they from Atlanta. ‘He from Atlanta. He from Atlanta. He from Atlanta.’ I’m just putting it out there. Y’all got more bloggers—y’all got niggas interviewing more popular than niggas that’s rapping.”

    NY artists don't even need the radio so who cares. Joey Badass is going to clear at least $350,000 ending out 2013 with no radio and he's already expected to clear at least another $1M next year in tour money alone. Artists don't need the radio, period. Of course it helps, no one can deny that, but the old model is gone. So go ahead and fight for the radio. While all these cats are trying to battle it out you're going to find guys like Joey selling out shows nationwide not giving a fuck and laughing all the way to the bank.


    NY the internet is our new radio staion fuckem all

    How is ATL, or the south, winning when all these niggas barely move 100k units? half of em are signed to 360 slave deals so they not even making any real money from touring or concerts! The south is a generation full of chitlin circuit rappers! James oughta be glad, cause it can easily go back to the south being the laughing stock of the music industry nobody gave a fuck about! south rappers are dumb as fuck! they went from bitching & crying to be heard, blaming ny for everything, now guys like him are 'keeping it real' by stating the obvious, but not going into detail using FACTS about why music is the way it is! the entire culture of hip hop is LOSING, its not just NY! The south is LOSING! niggas is walking billboards for these blood sucking labels! all the name dropping and techno music or gay agenda bullshit...when see no problem with being used, you dont get to stand up and pat yourself on the back foh...aint nothing real about what he saying...

  • imho

    idk why hes backtracking hes right.. NY used to be hard, ny used to be feared.. and have legends. thats all ny has is legends.. everyone from NY raps like they from the south and i know cause i live in the city. now you can go onstage in NY disrespect everyone and noone will do a thing. then again why the fuck are ppl at a trinidad james concert anyways? who paid for that shit?

  • Ja Rule Army

    Of course he's going to get away with it on stage GO TO GOOGLE THIS SHIT IS IN WILLIAMSBURG BROOKLYN THATS THE JEW CAPITAL Try that shit in Brownsville or East NY

    Dude is right think about it. Papoose was a guest on Hot97 on a debate about the state of hip hop. He told them when he goes to Miami that's what they play Miami, Atlanta same shit [I AINT SAY THAT HE DID]. New York radio dont play NY. Then they deny it to his face. Turn on Hot 97 or Power 105 its the same 5 songs from Atl, MMG, Jay or Kanye
