After the much talked about debate of who he would sign for, the rapper from Atlanta has officially decided to put pen to paper to confirm a deal with Def Jam Recordings. Trinidad Jame$’ initial attraction quite clearly came off the back of his successful “All Gold Everything” single, which is currently nearing three million views on YouTube. The label’s president Joie Manda had this to say upon the announcement:
“We’re excited to welcome a young talent like Trinidad Jame$ 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 Jame$ 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.”
We’re excited to see what moves will be made in the near future, but the rumoured two million dollar deal should give Trinidad and Gold Gang Records what they need to put together their talent in the most effective way possible.
