When it comes to rap battles, Trinidad James says he’s not with that. Instead, he’d rather put hands on a rapper that doesn’t like him.
The rap newcomer responded this week to a comment made by Joe Budden in his “Lost Control” track, where he spit: “This ain’t for bandwagon fans, sit y’all asses in the same spot / Y’all the same n****s made Trinidad Jame$ hot.”
In an interview with King Bishop, James offered his reaction.
“It’s all love,” he said. “I make music to answer a lot of those types of questions. I don’t consider it as a diss. I’m from the streets, so a n**** talking is like a n**** talking. A n**** punching, you don’t like me, n****, you can fight me. That’s why I make the songs to let you know… if you don’t like me, ‘N****, you can fight me. I’m never going to diss you back, we gonna throw these hands back and forth.’ That’s all this is about. It’s all love. I’m good.”
Joe addressed the matter on Twitter Monday (August 19), responding to a fan who asked about it. “I didn’t diss Trinidad at all. I was referring to the fans.. But enjoy your day Sir,” he wrote (@JoeBudden).
