Release Date: TBA
Label: Def Jam
Record sales may only mark one aspect of an artist's success in 2012, but for artists who receive a lot of internet attention, it's still being treated as the litmus test for a successful transition from viral internet star to successful artist. Fair or not, Trinidad James' Def Jam debut will no doubt receive a lot of focus to determine whether or not Trinidad is worthy of his label's investment. There's no release date yet, and he's still working on videos for tracks from this past summer's Don't Be S.A.F.E. mixtape ("Southside" recently received a video shoot).
