Last summer, Trinidad Jame$ had a certified smash with “All Gold Everything.” But, as many called even back then, the jig is up. Let this Westwood Crib Sessions freestyle by the Atlanta rapper stand as undeniable evidence of his knack for serving up struggle raps. 

We’ll give Jame$ credit for actually kicking rhymes off the top of his head, but that’s where we have to stop. At one point in this nearly 4-minute long session James decides to read the vinyl records that surround him for inspiration. What we get treated to amounts to freestyled ad libs.

Tim Westwood, you’re foul for setting this man up like this. Just saying.

Jame$ signed what was reportedly a $2 million dollar deal with Def Jam in December 2012. What’s a record label employee to think when he or she is thumbing through his marketing plan and listens to/watches this freestyle?

Another detail worth noting, the comments on the YouTube video have been disabled. Check Trinidad Jame$’s freestyle below.

Are we wrong? Feel free to point out Jame$’s talents in the comments section.
