The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Does Trinidad James Deserve Our Attention? [Video]

Trinidad James. You're killing me bro...

I'm going to have to go ahead and say "NEGATIVE." Why? Here's why...

For me, his image is taking away from his talent. If there's any there. And I need more than one track to hook me.

But honestly, I'm not too qualified to weigh in. I haven't listened to his mixtape, Don't Be S.A.F.E. yet, it has been on my TO-DO list for way too long...but I have been following his performance trail, interviews and buzz (streets, twitter, Facebook)...and who can really escape "All Gold Everything?" I mean, really? The shit is catchy as all hell, and easy to follow. We - microwave generation - seem to be taking a particular liking to that formula.

In the meantime, I'll let you all judge and I'll fall back and await the followup. If the rumors are true, it'll be a cold knock out. But time tells all... We shall see.

Word to my man Reem, who put me one the "All Gold Everything" video before it had too many views to count.
