Trinidad James, Maino Exchange Twitter Jabs Over NY Diss

By  | 

Rapper Trinidad James is under fire after dissing New York’s rap scene and their fans while performing in New York on Tuesday night.

“I remember when New York rap ran this sh*t. When Dipset was turnt the f*ck up … Now, we run y’all,” James told a silent crowd during mid-concert rant. “Now every n*gga that’s really poppin’ out of New York, he might as well tell you he’s from Atlanta … it’s just what happened. Ya’ll got more popular interviewers and bloggers out here than rappers.”

The sentiment is similar to Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar who claimed the song “Control” to be the King of the Big Apple. Kendrick’s lyrics didn’t sit well with Maino, and neither did Trinidad’s. The NY rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to let his feelings on the Southern rapper’s thoughts be heard:

“Heyy buddy @trinidadjamesGG I’ll be your Huckleberry! Lol imma brush those teeth when I see you baby boy. You a street n*gga, right? LMAO,” he tweeted, adding, “After we clean this guy @trinidadjamesGG up, I’m straighten a few of you NY n*ggas out for being the vaginas that you are!”

James didn’t shy away from the controversy, responding on Twitter himself.

“Maino wanna shoot me for saying the truth then shoot on. I ain’t backtracking sh*t. NY consumers are a disgrace to their own culture. I don’t ever have to make it on the radio ever. F*ck the radio. I’ll die a real n*gga. I speak the truth … and the TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.”

    man NY rap scene been fell off. Im from the Atl, and waaaaay back in the 90’s it was southern boys vs NY boys. In the A we been stop listening to the NY rap why because nooooooooooo bass, the bass and beat was the key to the south. NY rap has been lame “L” since gangster rap hit, have not listened to that garbage since.

      New York ….NY did lose their sound when it comes to mainstream.nobody can argue that….i say in the 90s from the research i did…..New York wasn’t too much after the southern rappers.NY barely mentioned the south…….New York was more after the west coast to be more specific …NY was dissing L.A. …….Nobody cared in the 90s if the south wasn’t listening to NY because compared to New York The south still wasn’t relevant …..New York sound Garbage?…your opinion can’t be mad…..

    only thing NY rappers got is Jay Z who Pac blasted and no one knew who he was even talking about. Jay Z being from NY and ol skool at that should know better than what he is doing “bitten” besides he is a devil worshipper and yall dumb nigg@S like that Sh!t smh. the south is beat and bass, something for the ladies to dance too booty shake, yall call it twerking smh, and beat to ride too.

    People have to realize he’s entitled to his opinion and to be honest, what NY rapper is really being talked about at this moment. “crickets” Don’t get me wrong I grew up in the golden age of hip hop in the 90’s and NY had some of the dopest rappers and most of my top 5 rappers come straight from NY but le’s be real the NY scene has been dead since the south has taking over. New York is no longer the center of the world nor the rap scene and I know for most of yall that’s a hard thing to swallow. But the truth hurts and continuing to be arrogant about it won’t change it either.

      Man i dont know why people cant see through the smoke and mirrors . Forget N,E,& S good music is good music . These companies are pushing Dumb music and this Gay stuff on people . There scared of music that invites the listener to think and question society . Therefore everything is about twerkin , or getting high . You say anything slightly intellectual the youth doesn’t want to hear it anymore . ” what you trying to kick knowledge ” – Jay-Z . Because they been trained to like the bs allah Trinidad james . This so called hit yal keep talking about was one of the dumbest songs ever !!! And now you have men running around wearing women’s clothing . Skirts , leggings and skinny jeans . You go to the men’s section at a clothing store . the pants have ruffles on them wtf ???And yal wonder why these boys grow up to be so soft ? i’m saying that to say this . There are dope artists out the south , west , north , east and most of them are not on the radio . stop letting the radio tell you whats hot . There’s been plenty of dope music made in the past 10 years that came out of NYC . problem is i didn’t make radio . They don’t want you to hear that . You ever listen to satellite radio ? thats how the radio is suppose to sound . The dj’s nowadays on fm radio don’t even like what they play on the radio but they have too . Not because there is just such a demand for trinidad James and these other guys . Because It”s PAYED FOR !!!! that 106 and park stuff caters to a young audience . when there are plenty of people who love hip-hop who are well into there 40’and 50’s . This is new problem for hip-hop because its the youngest genre and its always been youth driven . but as years go by . There’s going to be more older people then younger people that listen to Hip-Hop . which were facing now , we need to be catered to as well . And i know i don’t to hear music thats talking about nothing all day . Trinidad James , Future , 2chains , Rich homie Quan , Amigos ??? all these Kats are so called hot ??? There F-cking terrible !!! But there on the radio 24/7 . So use the internet to really find some good music out there . stop being dictated too and believing the myth of there isn’t any good music coming out of Ny

      hip hop is new york culture, just like being country is Alanta, new yorkers can’t tell u how to be country, but for some reason yhal want to tell us how to live hip hop, the problem is generational, I feel and most new yorkers feel yhal don’t respect our culture, and it is our culture, it was a combination of things that meshed together in the 70s and 80s that could only happen in a new york, yhal can do rap and bite hip hop, and try to make it have yhal flavor (like white ppl do with all our shit) but the truth is yhal will always biting us #FACTS

      I agree. It’s generational. Most “artists” today are garbage and its acceptable to this generation. You don’t need talent to make it… You just have to be popular.

    Trinidad James is a ONE HIT WONDER. I’m from the south & I be jamming to music all over. He is entitled to his opinion. But I listen to 90’s music anyeays. But James needa say them kinda things when he obtain a more lenghty, promising, stable career.

    This is ignorance at its finest. Its just the beats that matter with southern rappers, there are maybe a handful that have verbal skills. Its all about booty bouncing down there, that dont make you a good rapper. Name one rapper that trinidad can go bar for bar with from ny? Dont worry ill wait. The handful (t.i. luda, 3000, big boi, jeezy.)

    Fuck Trinidad James. Us Ny niggas should’ve kept Hip hop to ourselves because when we ran this shit, it was real with nothing but bars and true meanings behind it, Now hip hop is a twerk shop for no bars having retarded cats like Trinidad to come in and actually make money of this shit. If theirs anything you ATL niggas run it’s fucking special ed hip hop with your songs that only have a catchy hook and the shittiest 16’s my ears have ever heard.

    Soft. Trinidad James should stay the fuck out NY before someone tries to get at him. But honestly being from NY, today is nothing like the 90s with Big, Mobb deep, Wu-tang, big L, big pun, gangstarr, blackstarr. Now we got cats like French Montana ruining songs with his dumb leanin ass. SMH

  22. Just sayin...

    November 21, 2013 at 12:56 AM

    I have been hearing a lot about this since the kendrick lamar control verse and I really don’t get it. Yes it is true that mainstream nyc hip hop artists have southern influence in their songs, but the truth is all of hip hop was changed by the southern sound when it hit. We now have a generation of people who grew up listening to southern melodic music along with nyc backpack music and these rappers have been influenced by both. Yes the NYC sound has changed, but so has LA’s. No one criticizes the TDE movement for not having the dog pound NWA sound. No one says that it is not west coast. Why does east coast have to sound like joey badass to be new york? The ASAP mob are the new new york, Nicki minaj is the new new york, french montana is the new new york. These acts play on the radio all the time, and while they have a southern influence they are distinctly new york-perhaps not old school nyc, but nyc. TI and Young Jeezy have ny influence. They have a unique southern sound, but they were absolutely influenced by NYC hip hop. Why aren’t they criticized? And does this mean that a radio station can’t play an act by another state without being “ran” by that state? Trinadad James was completely disrespectful and ignorant and I hope he loses all his nyc fans and I hope nyc DJs stop playing him until he apologies for being disrespectful if nothing else. I also hope he has the sense to not come to nyc or the east coast as a whole because I would hate for him to die or get hurt over something like this..

People are coming out of different COUNTRIES now days so grow up. NY be acting like some old HOUSE NIGGAZ. Why? because history dictate you all got your freedom first….all the while, southern women and children were brave enough to trek through alligator infested waters and surpass all kinds of difficulties to get up state and make a new life there… Y’all FORGOT about that. You forgot about it so baaaad, even ya street preachers get dissed for looking like rude morons that have a bit of information. Back in the day Rap was about self pride, and personal achievement, you guys took it by the reigns and didn’t let nobody hop on and it was every man for himself and by your hands Look what Rap has turned into…. SO, when it comes down to looking fly, talking shit, and backing it up-from southern peach behinds to straight GOONING…..WE won hands down. Just Ask BEYONCE…. SO step a side and be humble cause down here we don’t pay homage unless your GOD-Down here everybody can get along ’cause, “We all got Country Cousins”-Devin the Dude…Y’all need to learn how to just “Party and bullshit”-Biggie and need to quit trying people fo’ you get ya head bust to da white meat!
