(AllHipHop News) Nicholas Williams recently took Jay-Z’s Life+Times to Richmond Hills, Queens to discuss the origins of Trinidad James.
During the sit down, the often criticized James states that he would not change his name or visual representation of Trinidad even in the face of disapproval:
“I was going to keep the name and keep the flags in the All Gold Everything video even if no Trinidadians respected what I did. Because it’s not really to get the approval of the whole world or the whole of Trinidad. It’s just to show the people who care that I respect where I come from.”
