Rumors of, Trinidad James, signing with Def Jam for a deal worth two million started yesterday. While I was doubtful at first, a few inside sources have said it is true. It is not uncommon for an artist to be signed off of one hot single, just look at Kreayshawn. Do you think this would be a good move for Def Jam? What message would this to send to rappers that have been trying to get signed for years?
“We’re excited to welcome a young talent like Trinidad James to the Def Jam family,” Joie Manda says. “Def Jam prides itself as both a cornerstone of hip-hop’s rich tradition, and as a vital, forward-thinking label dedicated to breaking and nurturing emerging artists. Trinidad James represents the cutting-edge of what’s happening in the culture today. We are thrilled to have him at the label, and look forward to growing his already massive buzz.”
