For a minute there it seemed like Trinidad Jame$ was ascending to the top of rap popularity when he dropped his hit “All Gold Everything,” but then NYC OG Mysonne G-checked the Trinidad for speaking ill of New York and we ain’t heard much from him since.
Nevertheless, the ATLien is still on his rap grizzly and returns with some new work in “Jame$ Woo Woo” in which he channels the spirit of the late-great James Brown and puts on a show worthy of the Apollo… in the 60’s. The Sandman would’ve came for him had this been a few decades later. Just sayin.’

I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”
Bugs Bunny is down, but no word on if Michael Jordan will make a cameo.
