Trinidad James stirred up a little bit of controversy when he went off on a rant about the music industry and New York City in particular at a show in New York last night. But while he's got a few New Yorkers mad, Trinidad isn't backing away from his words. In fact, he's doubling down.
Tonight, he shared "L.I.A.A.R.$," which stands for "Lame$ is Alway$ Acting Real.....$ure," on Atlanta's Streetz 94.5, in which he defended his words and took a few additional shots. "I know I sound crazy," the track begins, before launching into a discussion about Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg ("Rosenberg tried me/Almost hit him in the shit/God said 'spare him' now we best of friends"), taking shots at Power 105's Charlamagne tha God ("Ain't no god for Charlamagne if he try me again") and generally offering some words of advice for anyone in the music industry:
Ain't no love for fuck niggas that's acting like my friends
Just because I dap you, that don't mean we friends
Never hold your tongue, get it off your chest
'Cause if you hold your tongue you gon' get depressed
Look, Trinidad James may be a punchline in some quarters, but this is pretty fucking hip-hop/punk/etc. of him. He hasn't scared people this much since he first came in with gold all on his chain, and it's nice to see him continuing to ruffle some feathers, especially if he keeps doing it by making songs with hooks like "They say I'm going crazy. I know I'm going crazy. But I don't give a fuck."
