Trinidad Jame$ Is Ready To Move On After Losing Def Jam Deal

The Atlanta rapper speaks on losing his Def Jam deal.


Trinidad Jame$, who rose to fame in 2012 for his hit record “All Gold,” before inking a reported $2 million deal with Def Jam, made headlines earlier this month after he confirmed he was dropped by the storied label. 

Trinidad Jame$ Dropped By Def Jam

Releasing two records since breaking the news over Twitter (“Doin Me,” and “No Excuses”), the Atlanta rapper sat with REVOLT, to talk about his new-found focus and being ready to move on. "For me, I'm just focusing on the people who actually show me love. I know the hate is there, I respect it," he admitted, before continuing, "I [feel] like everybody knows that I don't give a f—k." 

Focused on moving on to the next chapter, by way of his same backers pre and post Def Jam, Think It's A Game Records, the Gold Gand rapper is arming himself with a brand new mixtape expected to arrive on September 23rd, and regardless of the chatter about losing his deal, he's going to continue what he knows best: 'doin' me.'

"At the end of the day, what I want people to know is that I continued to be who I am and not what people want me to be," he said. "And through it all, I'm still going to smile."
