Trinidad James has been rapping for a little less than 10 months, but with some viral hooks, weird imagery, and a new southern anthem “All Gold Everything”, he’s been able to sign a deal to a major record label… That’s right! Sources say, Trinidad James has signed to Def Jam for $2 million dollars.
I have yet to see the official word be passed down from Def Jam or the young rapper, yet, but it’s safe to say congratulations are in order! Def Jam‘s digital savant Young Savv tweets:
“All Def Jam Everything” @trinidadjamesgg
