Rumor Alert: Trinidad James Reportedly Signs To Def Jam For $2 Million, Twitter Reacts. *UPDATE* Def Jam Confirms Signing, Releases Statement

 

Trinidad James has only been rapping for 11 months, but he may have parlayed one hit record into a sizable record deal. There has been a bidding war for the Atlanta rapper ever since his song "All Gold Everything" started to bubble.

 

During his recent sold out show at Santos Party House in NYC it became clear that the song was not just a regional record as Trinidad performed it two times in a row for the enthusiastic crowd.

 

XXL reported that Joie Manda, Chris Atlas and Barry Weiss were in the house representing Def Jam Records and Mike Keyser from Atlantic Records was also in the building to watch Trinidad perform.

 

Now rumors are running rampant that Def Jam has cut Trinidad a $2 million check to join their roster that already includes Rihanna, Kanye West, 2 Chainz and Frank Ocean.

 

 

The news has people on Twitter talking. Check out some of the reactions below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

**UPDATE** December 13

 

Joie Manda President, Def Jam Recordings has just confirmed the signing of Trinidad James. Manda released a statement to Billboard.

We're excited to welcome a young talent like Trinidad James to the Def Jam family. Def Jam prides itself as both a cornerstone of hip-hop's rich tradition, and as a vital, forward-thinking label dedicated to breaking and nurturing emerging artists. Trinidad James represents the cutting-edge of what's happening in the culture today. We are thrilled to have him at the label, and look forward to growing his already massive buzz.

 

Trinidad was grateful the label gave him the opportunity to pursue his dream. "Def Jam, thank you for believing," Trinidad said.

LMAO, I can't help it. @swagged up bully and @Chopping Game pretty much summed it up. You either feel him or you don't. And he is different thats whey def jam signed him. He rappen bout real s***, s*** n***** is really doen right now. While rappers(including BS rappers) rap about s*** none of us posting can aford. Maybauch this,100 bottles, FOH with all that. You wanted a REAL N**** and Def Jam got him, and he came outta left field with it. The whole mixtapes cracks for what it is, whether you call it b*******(like the rest of hip hop so you just can't hate on TJ) or you gone bump it.

He doesn't deserve this deal. Def jam just made a big mistake but they did that too with signing 2 lames. If you support this dude you should probably not utter the words hip hop or act like you know something about the culture because you're just an idiot. And u should listen to kids bop.
