This is the type of shit Trinidad James couldn't drop while he was on Def Jam. His latest track, "This America," has him appearing alongside Tef Poe and spitting political bars. This is taken from DJ Burn One's upcoming albumÂ Greenwood, which has already been responsible for dope tracks from RittzÂ and Starlito/Don Trip.
James opens up the song with some mournful sung vocals over a clattering sonic canvas, but Poe's the true star Â here, delivering a powerful verse that says, among other things, "Obama give a fuck about the Eric Garner murder." It's cool to hear Trinidad James branch out when he's unburdened by a major label deal.
On my UFO, sky-high, looking at the corners
Suit back, let that, body cam record it
In my city black people goin' rogue out here
These rap niggas cancellin' their souls out here
