Did Trinidad James Sign With Def Jam Records for $2 Million?

During Trinidad James’ sold-out show at Santos Party House, label executives from both Def Jam and Atlantic Records were in attendance. “Joie [Manda], Pecas, Chris Atlas, Barry Weiss on The Def Jam side & [Mike] Keyser on the Atlantic side at Trinidad James show,” tweeted XXL’s executive editor Jayson Rodriguez. Now, rumored reports say that the rapper has settled a deal with Def Jam for $2 million.

It is important to note that Trinidad has only been rapping for about 11 months. He recently dropped a mixtape, Don’t Be S.A.F.E., which boasts standout tracks such as “Females Welcomed” and “All Gold Everything.” If the rumors turn out to be true, he will be joining big name acts including Kanye West, Rihanna, Frank Ocean, 2 Chainz, and more.
