Trinidad James performed at the Converse Rubber Tracks event last night in New York City and caused a storm in the community by some his talk during the set. The Def Jam rapper claimed that New York’s Rap scene has fallen off and that Southern artists are running things at the moment. He later also took to Instagram to respond to some of the reaction from fans from his controversial statements.
“When you say real shit people call it a melt down. That’s fine. The truth will set you free……#CrazyDeacon
I said a lot tonight in NY and people are prolly gonna take the negative and run with it but my main purpose in life only is to take care of my mama and keep my shoe game on “30 million” . Other than that if I can inspire a young person to be the best person they wanna be along the way….then cool. Nothing else matters. #CrazyDeacon #BlackBatman”
Watch the video footage of his sort-of-rant below.
UPDATE: Maino has reacted strongly to James’ comments.
