“All Gold Everything” might be the motto, but Trinidad James has true love and appreciation for music. We had the chance to meet with the Def Jam-signee at this year’s Paid Dues-festivities in San Bernadino, CA and talk about a range of subjects such as his dream collaborations, his feeling about being an official part of the XXL Freshman Class of 2013, respect between artists and the necessity of getting together to make music that “blows people’s mind” and much more.

Around the release of #WHITE, I shot this video with RDBN. The plan was to put a group of people into a hotel room, and capture a performance amidst a real party scene. Due to legal circumstances surrounding the video, it was never released. Over the past several months and a lengthy investigation and legal battle, a settlement was recently made that accommodated both the interests of BRAINBANDITS and the family of the individual involved. We’ve been cleared to release the video for the time being.
