Wu-Tang Clan's U-God is the latest hip-hop artist to speak out on Trinidad James sparking tensions in the New York area by calling it its rap scene.
While U-God co-signed James' music, he said the Atlanta rapper to check out his own records before calling out the entire Big Apple.
"He ain't talking to me with that. Trinidad James ain't talkin' to me about that sh*t, about n*ggas from New York. Listen to my sh*t, nigga. Ain't tryin' to hear that. Only reason why them n*ggas is poppin', man, down South n*ggas sign any godd*mn thing. New York dudes, we don't go for all that. So let's just travel the f*ck down South and going down there with that bullsh*t. But, I like the music, personally. I didn't get off with what he was saying. But Trinidad James, knock it off with that bullsh*t. He's not really saying nothing. He's getting 360 deals." (Montreality)
Recently, rapper A$AP Ferg said Trinidad really used the opportunity during a Brooklyn concert to spark attention for his music career.
Speaking of friction, Trinidad James made people hot with his recent comments about New York, sparking a few angry reactions. Ferg touched on the situation saying he thinks there may have been a motive behind the "All Gold Everything" rappers comments. "I just feel like he has an album coming out and he don't have a single," said Ferg agreeing with Peter Rosenberg that the Atlanta rapper may have been trolling. "That's still the homie. You gotta make some type of noise. Everybody does it." (XXL Mag)
Last month, New York rapper Papoose went directly at James' neck with this "Jive A** Turkey" diss record.
"Last artist to diss New York City suffered from low ticket sales," Pap raps. "That show canceled, I rocked his bells LL/After that I caused his man out to prevail, I substracted the Big from Sean and his album failed/The next New York hater, looking like Jerome Rome, trying to diss the hip-hop home, this my throne/You ain't no real Trinidadian boy, you hilarious/You ugly bride of Frankenstein, who you marrying?/You the dumbest out the South, it don't get dumber/Don't you know my gun spits thunder/You're a one-hit wonder/Halloween mascot, you wore you costume early/I see you in your video with all that costume jewelry" ("Jive A** Turkey")
In late November, audio of Brooklyn rapper Maino and Trinidad discussing the publicized jabs emerged online.
"What you saying now is different from what you was saying on stage. I studied that whole thing loud and clear, my n*gga. When you said 'Yo, we run y'all musically and I ain't trying to start nothing, but if you want to do something we can do it because I don't give a f*ck.' You took away from whatever your opinion was. Whatever your opinion was, you unvalidated it right there in that spot. You started talking some gangsta sh*t. You understand what I'm saying? Never in the history of my city has a n*gga step foot on a New York City stage and disrespected our city like you did. Like this ain't about me trying to be a bully or me trying to punk you or none of that. It's about right and wrong." (YouTube)
