Eight months ago, nobody knew that Trinidad James was a rapper. Come February the Def Jam artist will be going on tour.
The rapper made his star turn in the end of 2012 when his hit single, "All Gold Everything" seemingly came out of nowhere to be the hottest song in clubs all over the country. “I want people to understand where I come from. I'm not perfect, we may forget a word or two but we are always gonna turn up together.," James said in a statement. "At the end of the day, you will always remember the experience”
James reportedly signed a multi-million dollar deal to Def Jam Records towards the end of 2012 off of the strength of his "All Gold Everything" single and his mixtape Don't Be S.A.F.E. The tour will be coming off of the heels of his new single, "Females Welcome." Let's see if James is here to stay or a flash in the pan.
