It has been a fast couple of months for rapper Trinidad James. He practically came up overnight. Record labels reached out to him just as quick as the world jumped on his All Gold Everything track. Billboard broke the news and announced his $2 million dollar record deal with Def Jam.
Def Jam’s President Joie Manda is excited to welcome Trinidad James to the team.
We’re excited to welcome a young talent like Trinidad James to the Def Jam family. Def Jam prides itself as both a cornerstone of hip-hop’s rich tradition, and as a vital, forward-thinking label dedicated to breaking and nurturing emerging artists. Trinidad James represents the cutting-edge of what’s happening in the culture today. We are thrilled to have him at the label, and look forward to growing his already massive buzz.”
Yet another one from the Ambition rapper Wale this week. Wale and MMG leader Rick Ross take us to the tattoo parlor for Wale’s newest video “Tatts On My Arm”. The visual was directed by Dre Films.
It’s no doubt that Wale’s “Lotus Flower Bomb” is a hit. Some have argued that Wale went too MMG on us but it is clear that this Miguel assisted track is classic Wale. Finally, Wale gives us the visual to the song we all love so much. America’s Next Top Model Bre plays Wale’s love interest and together the pair took me back to Poetic Justice for a moment. Enjoy!
Miguel released a visual for his newest hit single, “Quickie”. I had the pleasure of hearing this song years ago when Miguel’s management team was still figuring out his image. I am glad to see they are letting him be him. For some reason, I get the feeling that Miguel is in charge of his style and if he is not steering his own career than he is at least in the front seat. He has come a long way and is being received extremely well.
