Trinidad Jame$ is currently pushing his latest single "Just a Lil Thick (She Juicy)" hard. The "All Gold Everything" rapper teamed up with Mystikal, Lil Dicky and DJ Mustard for a video for the ode to the "175 and up club." The hilarious video for the single, which was released at the end of April, has already clocked close to 3.5 million views and the song itself is gaining steams in the clubs.
Mustard took a well deserved break in 2015 and turned heads when he returned with Travi$ Scott for their EDM-infused single “Whole Lotta Lovin‘.” XXL spoke with Mustard about why he decided to take a step out of the limelight and his 2016 comeback.
“I had friends that were involved with making music with me that I took care of, they end up suing. That’s typically shit that happens when you end up being successful, people get jealous and want to be you, all type of shit,” he said. “Just not being able to be in the studio with my friends I came in the game with. A lot of shit happened. My engineer, he quit [laughs]. People just counting me out, so it was like aight, it’s time to turn up on y’all muthafuckas and show that this is not an accident. This is not an accident that I’m in the position that I am in. I got here on my own and I showed people, before I knew y’all, this is who I was. Now it’s just really just showing people, don’t think that I can’t come back and do what I want to do. Even though I said I was gone for a whole year I ain’t never left, I still had music on the radio, I still was getting money, it wasn’t like I wasn’t doing what I was doing.”
