Trinidad James Gets Dropped From Def Jam

As stated by VIBE:

The rapper of “All Gold Everything” fame took to Twitter early this morning (Aug. 2) to announce that he has been dropped from Def Jam Recordings. Stating that his album was now “free,” and that he has “no money” to pay for beats or features, the 26-year-old Atlanta native posted the following message:

I should tell yall. I got dropped by the Label. My Album is now free. If u hear ur beat or verse on it. I hope u want dap cuz i got no money

Failing to release his first official debut album with the label, James dropped two mixtapes while with Def Jam: Don’t be S.A.F.E. and 10 PC Mild. His exit follows the release of his track “Rap Game Just Too Funny,” on which he launched complaints about music executives.

Def Jam has not released an official statement regarding Trinidad James as yet.

ZOBE states:

Many independent music artists don't realize what all it takes to take what they are doing to the next level and what it takes to stay on that level and continue advancing their career. Its not easy once you get signed... thats just the beginning of your new journey... that is when you kick things into overdrive and work gets harder... not easier... some artists think that once they get signed... even to an independent label, that they don't have to do anything else after that point and they end up finding out the hard way that they were very wrong!
