Trinidad James Says “The South Runs New York Hip-Hop”
Trinidad James has an interesting opinion on New York hip-hop, and I can’t really disagree with what he is saying.
I remember when New York ran this sh*t. When Dipset was f*cking turnt the f*ck up….What the f*ck happened? I remember when New York rap was the sh*t, and us in the south, us bamas, we was like ‘what the f*ck?’ and we just did our own thing. But now we run y’all, that’s crazy….I’m not trying to start nothing, but if you wanna do something we can do something cause I don’t give a f*ck. I’m just being honest with you….Now every n***a popping out of New York you might as well tell he from Atlanta.
The problem isn’t what he said, it is where he actually had the nerve to say it — in New York City. People feel pride in their city no matter where they are from, so coming to NYC and saying this might not have been the best move…especially when you aren’t the best rapper in the world, Trinidad James.
Several NY rappers took offense. Here is what Maino tweeted:
