Grammy-winning rapper T.I., Young Jeezy and 2 Chainz came through for fellow Atlanta hip-hop artist Trinidad James by showing up for his new "All Gold Everything" remix music video.
Cleary an ATL-themed visual, the four hip-hop stars flaunt their knack for all-things gold over the course of five minutes.
Early this year, molly-poppin' rapper Trinidad James tweaked up his viral hit "All Gold Everything" with extra verses from fellow Atlanta spitters T.I., Young Jeezy and 2 Chainz. The group version has now received a crew-encrusted video. The clip is pretty clear with its intent and finds the four MCs strutting through their neighbourhood with some local folks as they rep their golden goodies. T.I. talks about a treasure-plated yacht; Jeezy gets a bit more metaphorical as he hints at popping a bottle of Dom, though he also cops to owning a gold-plated scale. 2 Chainz almost messes thing up with his immediate mention of a snakeskin hat, but his lyrical alchemy brings him back on topic by bringing up his pricey neckwear (duh). We're pretty sure his Slick Rick-ish eye patch could fetch a small fortune too. James, meanwhile, gets to ride a BMX and delivers his hook while drinking in the street. (Exclaim)
Leading up to the music video, James dropped a BET-based, 30-second teaser.
Atlanta's own, Trinidad James, returns to the scene today with another behind the scenes look at his upcoming video. This time around Mr. James gives us more of a preview to his highly anticipated video for the remix to his smash single "All Gold Everything". The clip finds Trinidad as he links up with Young Jeezy, T.I., and 2 Chainz and take things to the streets of the ATL for the clip. The fellas can be seen dropping their bars while Trinidad rocks along side of them. (Stupid Dope)
Earlier this month, James talked about putting on for Atlanta by doing a remix with his fellow Georgians.
"I did everything A-Town just to show people that I love where I come from. I still do," James said in an interview. "That's why I had to start off the year right, why not do the remix with ATL legends?" (MTV)
Last month, Def Jam VP of A&R Sha Money XL addressed some fan backlash Trinidad has received but noted how popular "All Gold Everything" is.
"I think it's really still about the music. Trinidad [James] created a record that everyone can say they liked," he said. "No matter how much they make fun of him and mash him up with the jokes, they like the d*mn ['All Gold Everything'] record. Music is music. The formula, when you talk about mixtapes and how you put content out, you have the seed to plant. You create awareness, and you grow. That's a formula we all see. But I think the ultimate part of the formula is that the music has gotta be dope." (HHDX)
