As Joe Budden puts it, Trinidad James is taking the nation by storm. Just off his “All Gold Everything” video alone, the ATLien attracted the attention of label heads, received co-signs from T.I. to Big Boi, and developed a cult following for his unorthodox style. There are talks of an “All Gold Everything (Remix)" that may come into fruition, but the original still gets people hyped.

Trinidad’s obsession about rocking gold isn’t out of the ordinary. There have been countless rappers before him who have flashed a gold chain or two during their lifetime. From the legend Slick Rick to Tyler, the Creator, many of your favorites have been seen in all gold everything.

Here’s 50 rappers who have chosen 24 karat gold over ice.—Eric Diep (@E_Diep)

Uncle Ricky gives the kiddos a cautionary tale about a 17-year-old stick up boy whose life spirals out of control after trying to rob a plain-clothes detective. The lesson here? If you start robbing people, you’ll probably be dead soon.

Most Menacing Line: “Grabbed a pregnant lady and out the automatic/Pointed at her head and he said the gun was full of lead/He told the cops “Back off or honey here’s dead.”
