Trinidad James Speaks His Mind On Hip Hop In New York: “Atl Runs NY”

Posted By on November 13, 2013

Trinidad James is starting to get some major repercussions for blasting the city of New York’s hip hop  scene the past few years during a concert in New York last night (November 12).

During the concert at Converse Rubber Tracks, James decided to go on a rant aimed right towards New York’s music scene falling off and the South taking over.

“I remember when New York ran this sh*t, dog. When Dipset was f*ckin’ turned the f*ck up. Oh my God. I gotta wear my bandana on tilt like Juelz. What the f*ck happened, dog? What happened? I remember when New York rap was the sh*t. And us in the South, us bammas, we was like ‘what the f*ck’ and we just did our own thing. But now we run y’all musically. That’s crazy. That’s crazy. That’s crazy, my n*gga. That’s crazy. I’m not trying to start nothing, but if you want to do something we can do something cause I don’t give a f*ck. I looked up to New York music. And now every n*gga that’s really poppin’ out of New York, you might as well tell they from Atlanta. ‘He from Atlanta. He from Atlanta. He from Atlanta.’ I’m just putting it out there. Y’all got more bloggers–y’all got n*ggas interviewing more popular than n*ggas that’s rapping.” (Woogie 2 Woogie)

Once James’ rant went viral, NY rappers Smoke DZA and Maino decided to take to Twitter to express their thoughts.
