Trinidad James Dropped From Def Jam, Says He Has "No Money"

Trinidad James says he's been dropped and that he has "no money."

Trinidad James is no longer a part of Def Jam, according to rapper's recent Twitter activity. 

"I should tell yall. I got dropped by the Label. My Album is now free. If u hear ur beat or verse on it. I hope u want dap cuz i got no money," the rapper's Twitter post reads.

James signed with Def Jam in 2012, following the success of "All Gold Everything." At the time, he thanked the label.

"Def Jam, thank you for believing," James said.

James released the song and video for "Def Jam" earlier this year.

They say he's go crazy, they say he too real," James raps on the song's hook. "But being a real nigga got me a deal."

    This is why when you're up you're supposed to be humble about it and appreciate it. 'Cause when you're down nobody's gonna feel sorry for your doofy ass. You were just a gimmick anyway son. The sneaker phone of rap.

    He should be broke. He has not skills. He can't rap. Next up should Lil Boosie, Web, 2Chains. They all suck and should be bagging groceries.

      He had a gold single though. Def Jam dropped the ball, cause if they would have released the album to coincide with the song, he could have done decent numbers. Even Chief Keef saw an album lol Def Jam fucked up.

    Possibly the best news all year. So the label drops him, he can't afford shit and the fucking idiot wants to give out his album for FREE? I guess that's the only way he's gonna get heard and gain any hype. Besides it's not like anyone was ever gonna buy it. I mean let's be real here, the only person who would of bought this would be a billionaire pothead who would buy 100 copies, staple the inserts together and laugh his ass off as he uses the album cover for toilet paper and the empty cases as ashtrays. The discs would obviously be used for hitting the light switch from the comfort of their couch. #TrinidadLames

      Yup. he was 100% spot on. Its crazy because Wu tang Forever came out in 1997, and the garbage back then was nothing like it is now.

      How about googling some of her racist comments and tweets then you would know. She is racist towards the indigenous tribe in Australia, said some racist shit about Mexicans. Even dissed her own country in the Billboard Article, saying that Australian hip hop consists of the outbacks and kangaroo only. Let the truth free you

      Iggy is a rapper so there's no way she's racist but she wack as fuck & really does look like Marlon Wayans in White Chicks.

      how is Iggy racist? She signed to a black rapper and is dating a black ball player.

      Def Jam treats all artists of race equally as long as they sell units.

      No, the Beasties are true hip-hop mixed with alt-rock, no pop. Def Jam treats artists with good sales favorably. And what's undershirting something?

  • Not Impressed

    How come Trinidad gets dropped but artists like Ghostface and Sheek Louch who don't sell shit still have deals? I'm not complaining, he's garbage, but Def Jam has a lot of artists who just sit around and don't sell records but they stay on the label forever. He must have done something to make someone at Def Jam mad. I'm not impressed

    • Lionman

      Ghostface left Def Jam ages ago

    • minnesota slick

      cats like sheek and ghost have established fan bases that'll more likely than not buy their records.

    • smangford robinson

      Probably cause Ghost and Louch have put out music that has some substance and lasting appeal that still sells and will long outlast anything Trinidad James has put out. He's so boring it's making me sleepy just thinking about his first mixtape. Trinidad is a flash in the pan bubblegum bullshit one hit wonder rapper who thought he could just waltz into the game and spout dumb shit about wearing gold that basically appeals to the lowest common denominator, which is blog hype nerds that just started listening to rap like a year before "all gold everything" dropped and now act like they are rap connoisseurs. Maybe he can go back to pawn his fucking gold that he was so stoked to rap about... Or go back to designing wack ass hype beast clothes. Fuck that whole culture. Good riddance. Get a fuckin job and build some character. Or maybe learn to rap about some shit with substance.

    • Anonymous

      Trinidad James hasn't put out an album yet, so they figured they wasted time and money signing a guy just off of buzz alone. The difference between him and the guys you mentioned is that they actually put in work, regardless of sales.

      Slavery at def jam. Whites over there take advantage of blacks.

    Def jam robbed his ass. They wanted his money but not his talent. Ross would murder their asses if they ever did that to him. Def jam whites likes to takes advantage of blacks. Its like slavery over there.
