Atlanta rapper Trinidad James is not letting the small stuff bother him these days, especially in regard to a direct shot fired his way courtesy of Roc Nation’s J. Cole.
“He was just expressing himself,” he told MTV News on Saturday backstage at Power’s Powerhouse concert in Los Angeles. “Just in general if you really step back and listen to the song, he was just spittin’ how he felt and I can’t never be mad at somebody spittin’ how they feel.” (MTV)
On the track, Jermaine compares today’s music scene to the one his father grew up listening to.
“My pops was club hopping back when Rick James was out/And all I get is Trinidad James/Wait a minute that’s strange/Sip a bit of champagne, say f*ck/If the hoes like it/I love it n*gga n*gga n*gga/Used to watch Rap City Big Tigga Tigga/Rap nerd even copped Rah Digga Digga” (“Villuminati”)
Earlier this year, James caught heat for making a catchy drug reference on his “All Gold Everything” anthem.
