Trinidad Jame$ Clarifies His New York Hip-Hop Comments

Trinidad Jame$ Born 9/23/1987

Last night Trinidad Jame$ played a show in Brooklyn as part of the Converse Rubber Tracks series where he made some controversial statements about the state of New York hip-hop. In addition to mentioning Kendrick’s “Control” verse, the “All Gold Everything” rapper called out New York rap and asked “What the fuck happened?”

Unsurprisingly, many New York rappers responded, with Maino, Smoke DZA and Action Bronson all weighing in with varying degrees of indignation. Earlier today, Jame$ took to Twitter to clarify some of the points he was making at the show, emphasizing that he was saying New York doesn’t support New York artists.

He also clarified his statements from last night on Instagram, particularly acknowledging Maino’s comments about him. “Maino wanna shoot me for saying the truth then shoot on,” he wrote. “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.”
