Maino Threatens Trinidad James; Trinidad James Responds

Maino threatens Trinidad James after James says that Atlanta runs New York Rap.

Maino sent several Tweets to Trinidad James today (November 13), soon after Trinidad James performed at the Converse Rubber Tracks show in New York City and said that the South runs New York City musically and that rappers in the area might as well claim the city of Atlanta as their hometown.

“I remember when New York ran this shit, dog,” the Atlanta rapper said during his New York performance. “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.”

Today, Maino responded to Trinidad James via twitter.





After Maino's tweets, Trinidad James responded.

Trinidad James also posted the following on his Instagram page today.

"Maino wanna shoot me for saying the truth then shoot on. I ain't backtracking shit. Ny consumers are a disgrace to their own culture. I don't ever have to make it on the radio ever. Fuck the radio. I'll die a real nigga. I speak the truth....and the TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE....#CrazyDeacon#BlackBatman...coming soon. You gonna wanna hear this. Ima die with a Trini Flag in the Air... "WHEN I DIE BURY ME IN A CARNIVAL"!!!

    Lets not forget about the changing of the guards. Music is categorized by era and what is accepted by the mainstream media. New York, London and Paris are some of the world's fashion capitals. Well, Hip Hop/Rap music will also have it's capitals. I don't like none of Trannyfag Lames' music because of one song he put out. "Gold all in my chain" which had a deeper meaning than you all understand. I think we should all pay attention to rappers that just come out over night without any real history in the national circuit. He had no right to go to NY and talk the Bull jive just to try to hype up the crowd. Very childish move.

  • Maino's Mirror

    BTW...Chicago's Hip-Hop scene is way better than NY's right now...NY is in the shitter....Pro Era and Troy Ave are the new hope. Fuck Action Bronson...I heard Ghostface Killah a long time ago.

  • Maino's Mirror

    Maino is still using the same tactic that got him in the industry...thugging. He can't rely on his lyrics for sure, so he just relies on his tough guy image. He's earned that image, but it's nothing to listen to.

  • Anonymous

    Reading Maino's vocab is painful.

  • Ny'er

    Str8 up NY BK fella right here...Trini speaking facts in terms of the industry,but we still have some dope ass emcees yall never heard of. I blame the industry,radio and us ourselves since we dont support alot of our artists. But I dont take this music shit personal,cmon now. Thing is though we were always known for giving listeners something they can learn from,some type of jewels they can take away from a verse or a song or album but nowadays that shit aint hot..it aint poppin like back then..and the youth is too stupid and dumbed down to want to hear anything that they can learn from. So its a double edged sword @ the end of the day. Far as Maino goes however,I mean he hasn't done much musically in some time now and never was anything to talk about so his opinion is irrelevant at this point real talk.

  • NY HIP HOP HEAD

    As y'all walk through the valley of denial and acceptance of NY being stagnant, James is speaking what EVERYONE has been thinking about NY rap for a long time. I'm glad he spoke up, I'm glad NY niggas are in an uproar. Now how about they channel that misplaced emotion into making some great NEW YORK RECORDS.

    Trini is right, thats what most NY rappers will tell you too. South is ruling, but blame the consumer or the programmers. Internet is runnig hip hop right now, it became a culure "hot today, gone tomorrow" Its not Trini's fault he's just sayin. Ironicly Dip Set started that South sounding beats in a cookie jar. Now almost every NY rapper has those beats. Same as that emo shit, when there is a market people will sell.

And then you have the more popular ones ASAP mob, flatbush zombies, pro era, raider klan, El-P, mothafuckin exquire

  • Boosie

    Haaaaa.... TJ just said some real shit. Name one NY rapper that was not out in the 90s that puttin up major numbers in the last year. The only one that could be said is probably ASAP Rocky and he sounds like he from Houston. NY rappers will never get better if they do not accept what ever formula they been coming up with aka "anytime somebody disses NY I make a wack ass diss track over the same beat" or "I am try to stick with the essence of NY hip by rapping over garbage beats that sound like they are from the 90s" then yall never going to get back to the top. Take your medecine like the west coast did and come up with a new plan because NY rap is currently ranked behind southern and west coast rap.

    • So Dumb

      Even with his "Decline" he still went gold with his last album. He may not have sold 10 million, but who has sold 10 million lately? Gold is pretty good nowadays.

    • So Dumb

      I hate the argument that 50 cent is declining. Nas, Jay, and A$AP all put out commercially successful albums in the last year like you said so you basically made my argument for me. The problem with your argument is Nispey, odd future, and most of black hippy besides kendrick don't sell commercially. You can compare the sales of Nipsey to a guy like Action bronson, TDE to ASAP (As one of both of their crews was really successful- Kendrick and Rocky), and Snoop and Dre to Nas and Jay. Btw I'm from cali but they basically equal

    • Boosie

      And its "So Dumb" to name 50 bc he has been on the decline since his first album. Only 2 artist you guys have is Jay and Nas which I specifically stated are irrelevant to any argument because they have been in the game so long. When people were saying the west was dead Snoop and Dre were still putting out albums. But they aren't new artist that can carry you into the future, like now the west has all of black hippy, nipsey hussle, and like them or not odd future

    • boosie

      I said the in last year last time fifty did major numbers was like 2008

    • So Dumb

      50 cents success came in the 2000's.

    • true

      "Not out in the 90's" Your name is perfect for you

How 'bout a little more recently, i didnt hear the rest of America crying when Hov told us "Not only NYC, I'm hip hop savior..." , you never heard the rest of the county crying like bitches.

  • ol dirty

    The bottom line, Trinidad is correct about NY Consumers and Radio Stations not supporting the artist. I do agree lots of NY artist try too hard to sound like the south. Also, most of the NY cats like Papoose bore the shit out of us. I agree with those points. But, the future ass kicking is all in the voice and tone in which Trinidad spoke. He practically dared anyone to get offended and NY cant allow that. Hes gotta apologize a.s.a.p.

  • TonyG

    As a New Yorker who is directly from the era TJ is talking about--running hip hop, I think TJ is right-on with his statement. Personally, I think its beautiful that the south is doing their thing! A lot of former New Yorkers (live in the deep south), and have been influenced by southern culture anyway, just like we've influenced the world with New York hip-hop culture (including the south). Its a cyclical relationship. Man, even people in Africa are rapping now, who cares, its about the talent. In the Motown days most of the major musical talents came from outside of New York! Its about the talent. TJ suffers from sensory overload. He can't see that the birth-place of Hip-Hop is showing the south its acceptance of their talent/There are a lot of fire southern rappers-- All inspired by NY Hip-Hop culture, That's why NY will always run HIP-HOP!!!

He thought he was bad enough to stand on an NY stage and spew that grease, so ride it out.

    NY rappers just ain't on the radio, because the radio went fag a long time ago, and became a perfect breeding ground for clowns like that. As far as I can see, NY is doing just fine. If anything, the South ruined Hip-Hop. Rap is now more negative and ignorant that ever before, thanks to the south. Hip-Hop was a positive, uplifting, lyrical, creative art when it was in in the hands of NY. Once all those ignorant Southern rappers got in the game, they had no integrity whatsoever, artistically or personally. They were ready to sell their people up the river. No disrespect to the real artists coming out of the South, 'cause there are some. But for this jester to come out his gross ass mouth was outta line. Some niggas are just gluttons for punishment. The thing is, he knows that crowds are soft nowadays, so he can talk all that shit. It's nothin' but clown ass niggas goin' to see him in the first place. He won't go to a real hip-hop event in NY and say that shit though. Niggas wouldn't even let that fly in Rochester. He'd get hit in the tooth with a beer bottle quick.

    • Sensaye Sixkiller

      In a sense, it is about North and South, because the culture has been divided by these two hip-hop idealogies. Down South, and I lived down South, people don't care about the hip-hop 'culture'. They didn't grow up in what would be called a hip-hop 'environment'. They don't feel close to the culture or feel the need to protect it, because they didn't see it grow in their neighborhoods. To them, making music is all about making money. Yes, there are desperate NY rappers trying to sound 'southern', and honestly, MAINO IS ONE OF THEM NIGGAS. But I understand Maino's position of feeling like he has to stand up for his hometown in the wake of Hip-Hop's constant erosion. Honestly, I'm not a fan of either of these fools. But if Maino went to New Orleans or Atlanta or wherever that nigga is from, and started talkin' shit about that city, then I would expect niggas down there to do the same thing. It's not so much what he said, but it never really is, it's about how someone says it, and he obviously had a 'I don't give a fuck what nobody think' attitude. So, now, we'll see if either one of these niggas can actually back up what they say. They'll both be gone and forgotten in 5 years any way.

    I didn't think gangsta rappers (well, what's actually left of them) took their feelings to Twitter. Up North rap doesn't run like it used to. It's because the South floods the industry with the bullshit songs that it covers up that good music the dudes from the North be doing. I blame "snap music" for this.

All you internet guys are parrots that repeat the headlines and opinions of others anyway so what difference does it make? These so called hip hop websites report this kinda bullshit faithfully, every day, and yall are the ones who buy into it, thats why its the way it is! trinidad james is speaking about a RESULT of an action, its not a FACT, its only fact if you buy into and make it a reality! listen to yall "he's right though"...like the mind fucked robots you are... you worthless fans are in total control, but these fluke artist running around TELL YOU what to think, dictate what to believe in, feel, like, dislike, wear, talk etc and you guys fall in line like zombies! Its easy for any rapper, city etc to be relevant in the industry when your more than willing to be a puppet!

    Maino better be careful they got more Trinis and Carribean catsthen other cats in brooklyn...putting hip hop aside...he made cause Trinidad James is telling the truth and unless its Jada , Fab or Papose ...man shut up you a D level artist with a Koch record deal

    FDB...I forgot to add.

    I was going to @maino, but this is all that lame wanted, more followers of his lame movement. Name a maino song....just as wack as trinidad James. Except James isn't selling death (violence, and drugs ) to our children. Maino doesn't rep NY, Maino reps, "when keeping it real goes wrong".

    I don't think james is around long enough to say that shit, but its not wrong. Maino is a real g, like the enforcer of NY hip hop.

      I'm not saying no ones trying, I'm saying it's not good enough, radio love is a weak excuse, social media blows up when something is hot, not much hotness coming out of that city, there is just no denying it.

      "no one is putting out music that Reps NY or defends NY," YES THEY ARE IT JUST GETS NO LOVE OR AIRPLAY, TRINIDAD JAMES POINT BASICALLY

    • blkviper

      See that's the problem, no one is putting out music that Reps NY or defends NY, so you need a Cat who has no music out to make it physical. Maino could beat him to the ground many times over, it doesn't change the truth.

  • Nick Newman

    Man I've never seen so many lame rap beefs in my life!! All thanks to Twitter.

  • blkviper

    Where is the music?? Anybody? just more sensitive ass cats wanting to fight over words LOL! so snaggle toof said NY not on?well KDot said it better but it doesn't make it less true.

  • Damn Maino

    He's right, its the truth. As brutal as it sounds, maybe Trinidad shouldn't been that bold to say it in NY but nonetheless its on point. The radio, media, corporations, labels and promoters shine the light on music that is no connection to the CULTURE AND CONSCIOUSNESS OF HIP HOP FROM THE 5 BOROUGHS OF NEW YORK CITY.

  • theE

    He right , hell Trinidad James gets more radio play in new york then Maino and like 98% of rappers from new york

  • cpg718

    Maino PLEASE put an end to this country ass retard!

  • Trinidad Lames

    Trinidad Lame is a bitch nigga fa real. First, He gets deiised by joe budden and responds with "We can throw hands" cause he knows he cant out rap anybody. Now Maino gonna beat that skinny pussy nigga's ass for this

    If one of our own rappers from NY say that our city/the media doesn't support each other, they're correct, but let someone from the south share the same midset/ideaology, niggas in NY are quick to lynch his ass Mississippi style.

    gangsters dont tweet. Maino comin off almost as lame as Lord Jamal threatening to beat cats up on twitter for saying some shit he dont like LOLOL

    • Anonymous

      i know he official but its weak when these cats tweet like scorned women makin threats they never gonna go through with

    • spirit equality

      The general consensus is that Maino's street cred is official. If you're so gangster, go say that to Maino's face instead of posting about it anonymously. Good luck with that.

  • God

    Why can't us brothers just stop making fun of each others teeth? I'm SORRY I don't have dental insurance. I'm not the best at selling drugs and can't afford it. Get off my case tho, blood. 100
