Maino Confronts Trinidad James Over The Phone (Audio)

(AllHipHop News) Trinidad James upset some native New Yorkers when he got on stage in NYC and said the south runs New York. One particular Big Apple emcee that was very vocal about his issues with Trinidad’s statements was Brooklyn’s Maino.

The “Hi Hater” rapper decided he wanted to speak to Trinidad directly, so Maino called the Atlanta entertainer. The conversation was recorded and has now hit the internet.

“Whatever your intention was it was different from what your actions was that night,” Maino can be heard telling Trinidad. “We can get to a better place all you need to do-  I ain’t saying you need to apologize to me cause it ain’t about me, it’s about my city- you need to apologize to my city.”

“It’s coming out tomorrow,” responded James referring to his video message titled “The Truth Will Set You Free” that he released earlier this week.

Maino goes on to say that he does not believe Trinidad would have said the same things about Detroit, Chiacgo, or Los Angeles in those cities, and if Trinidad wants to challenge a NYC rapper he will step up and defend his city.

Maino also sent out a tweet yesterday quoting Trinidad’s hit song “All Gold Everything”

    This is good for nyc.. At any rate, it’s hiphops home like fashion to Paris! We’ll be ok. It’s not about the region. It’s the generation/times.

    • LIQUORSTOREMAN

      Is it good for BLACK PEOPLE THO? ….Ill wait……

      • Jayson C Williams

        Neither is liquor so go be radical on some else’s comments pls

  • MrNoName2K

    damn Maino… it dosent even need to go to that level..

    • Jayson C Williams

      It kind of does. He thinks cuz the south hot and he’s from the south that he can run off at the jibs. He ain’t tI, he ain’t bun, he ain’t none of those real rappers from the south or anywhere. He has no credibility, fact is atl didn’t claim yuk mouth when he came out. Homie from Florida..

      • MrNoName2K

        Yukmouth is from the bay brah..

      • Jayson C Williams

        Talking bout homies grill I know the luniz, very familiar with the bay

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Yuk was born in Oakland

      • Jayson C Williams

        We know.. I know all about the luniz it’s be said already.. I’m talking bout Trinidad James and his mouth looking like shit. Come on

      • Willuminati☆Imortali

        I think he mean yuk mouth as in T. James fucked up grill…lol not Yuk from Looniz

      • JondoE303

      • Concerned Black Man

        Its music Jayson!! That’s 99% of our problem. White man say’s the same thing or worse, dudes laugh it off or excuse make. A brother say’s, lets get em. Just don’t understand our people sometimes.. Have not read, heard, or seen any other other ethic group ready to harm the man.. Its crazy man.. Just plain crazy.#Zimmerman

      • Jayson C Williams

        Who’s ready to hArm him? Nobody said they were going to do anything to him. Secondly this is our country our right to hold someone accountable for their actions. Stop going extra far with this. Cause truth is u still say “nigga” if your so pro black go lobby against the word locally than to a federal level. If you really want to help the “black community” than do something grassroots don’t start with hip hop because it’s an easy target. Go to the disenfranchised area of your city and hand out turkey’s next week and presents during xmas

      • Concerned Black Man

        I have and I do.. But its just music!!

      • Jayson C Williams

        That’s where u are absolutely wrong! It’s my culture. If you deem yourself black and read this site than it’s your culture too. this is our American blk culture! It’s more than music. And if you were into 90’s rap tribe call quest groups like that, than it’s your culture. If it were just music the whole America (including white) wouldn’t be so focused on hip hop. It’s a culture. And if you’re a concerned black man, and you want to help, than u need to understand these thinhs

  • Tyfromthechi

    He would’ve got stomped out in the chi for saying

    • 1SOFLO1

      The thing is he didn’t do it in Chi! he did it in NY, because they are soft. I am from MIAM. We used to have NYKer days, where we go around and beat up NYKers in school. You know why, because they used to talk shit, obviously they still do.

  • Jahb1911

    trinidad wants no problems with maino!!

  • Frequently Fly

    Who cares? Wake me up when this is over.

  • dfwricwil

    Need to call the NYPD and check them for profiling instead of defending a city who could give two rats ass about you. Priorities SMDH!!!!

  • Live Well

    And that, my friends, is what you call a G check.

    • ZUBU

      I agree, Trin sounded a little scared. I don’t know all the details but you can’t jump up on stage and pop off at the mouth about somebodys city. Then say to the crowd do something.
      Years ago even out here in Denver DJ Quik who is a blood was doing a show on the Eastside which is a crip hood. Quik started popping stuff about crips, mad crips bumrushed the stage chased Quik and his crew out the bldg. back to their hotel and essentially to the airport and out of town. I’m not saying its right but in my opinion you can’t go to someone elses house and start popping off.

      • baller187

        ya trin does be scared

      • Don_Te

        Ain’t that the episode Quik was talking about in “Jus like Compton”

      • ZUBU

        I think Quik didn’t mention that incident in one of his songs. One of the homeboys I grew up with promoted that show, he brought Quik to town to do the show. He lost money on that show he tried to sue Quik cause Quik essentially started that ruckus, not certain how the lawsuit ended up.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        That wasn’t on the E it was downtown at the mammoth, which is now the Fillmore on Colfax. And they didn’t chase him anywhere. Them dudes he fought got their faces busted with 40 bottles from Quik’s blood homies/bodyguards. The “chasing” story everyone mixes up with that situation is because a year later when he came back those same dudes tried to serve him with papers, so he fled and tried to ride an elevator up and down to ditch them. Childish but funny. I’m in Denver and lived here since the 90’s, but I was born in Oakland. Truth be told CO dudes just felt salty for taking that L and made up the “We chased him” story because legally Quik chooses not to talk about it.

      • Don_Te

        I been to Denver a few times…My uncle was stayin in one of them wards i think he said the 5th. I remember when the Rockies first came out he was like “I’mma buy you some Rockies gear but you can’t wear out here, thats what crips wear” I was like, man Quik didn’t lie, it’s serious out here.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Everyone from here wears Rockies s**t. G.K.I. wears it too because their color is purple. We don’t have wards though. The notorious 5th ward is where Master P is from in Louisiana. We don’t call our hoods Wards out here… But yea, Crips wear it too. But they’re on some other shit now.

      • ZUBU

        Don’t no bloods wear those colors, at least not any true bloods maybe them buster bloods who were not really put on.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Really it’s not about colors anymore. The junior Crips wear Green and Gray now. Not even really a lot of blue. and I know Crips on the E that purposely wear Red JUST to throw people off. Colors are really a thing of the past.

      • ZUBU

        I do see crips wearing gray not as much with the green. Cause for a good while bloods would sport some green. Also I’ve seen bloods wear all blue like you say to throw people off a bit, especially if they have to travel somewhere out of their hood. I could see how the colors maybe changing a bit. One off my closest homies who is fairly high ranking blood stay flamed up, cause he was so crazy back in the day everybody from most all of the sets know who he is, he has a very distinctive walk so he can’t hide or blend in and he don’t even try to. Years ago a blood I know got robbed by some dudes in masks, guns, etc. They caught him coming out of a spot laid him face down went through his pockets. They were dressed somewhat like crips, but while he was on the ground he saw that under the blue sweats these dudes had on red pants. Some other bloods had robbed him. He was a lil high siding ALWAYS carrying 10-15 stacks with him. He told me once that, that if he didn’t have 10k or better everyday when he left the house he felt like he was broke. I guess he told more than me that, its a wicked world in the street. Back in the day I was in the streets alot and knew a lot of people, but outside of my family there were probably less than 5 people who knew where I lived or whoever met my woman. I kept all of that apart, two vastly different lifestyles.

      • JondoE303

        Tre duce basically ran with gray as a secondary color and when tre tre got too big they split into fuller park tre tre and tre tre traffic gangsta crip and the only way you could tell is because fuller park tre tre wore blacc and blue and the tre tre traffic wore blue and what they called “traffic” green also some of the tre foe homies used to wear blue and brown

      • ZUBU

        I think I may have seen some some tre foe brothas wearing the blue and brown. Can’t say I have heard of the “traffic green” but another brotha mentioned the green earlier.

        Years ago one of my family members was visiting from New Jersey, and I was riding him around the city showing him a lot of the spots around town. Showing him how to identify some of the different sets, etc. He was kind of shocked how serious brothas were getting down out here. This happened in like 1997/98, and we all know how crazy it was. I think in 1993 it was the summer of killing out here. Denver was like a mini L.A. during that period. Off the chain..

      • JondoE303

        Word one of my homies that I went to school with got killed for his broncos coat by one of the 30s it was all over the news my ninja lived long enough to make it to his bacc yard and then he died

      • ZUBU

        I agree in regard to the changing in the importance of colors. I posted a longer comment in regard to this but it’s gone now I guess someone flagged it, but once again I’m gonna man-up and apologize to you my brotha. Peace brotha and I’m glad we were to talk about this like intelligent black men. Not often but sometimes we all may get a little carried away with our, thoughts, opinions, etc. Look forward to holla-ing at you in the future.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Yes sir. Apology accepted and once again I apologize as well. As you said we all get carried away sometimes, and Sometimes no matter how hard we try, when reading these comments they can come off as somewhat smart a** or condescending. What’s good is we are cultured gentlemen that can overcome the pettiness and come to an agreement as men SHOULD. I just wish our other brothers and sisters could come to this conclusion without gun play.

      • ZUBU

        Hey bro not to argue with you, but the Filmore which is on Colfax is offically considered across the board. Everything west of Colorado Blvd. is considered across the board. So yes it is the Eastside and it is not downtown, downtown starts once you go west of broadway.
        My homey Petey who I known since we were kids promoted the show and he sued Quik not the crips. Petey’s lil brotha Billy got killed by some crips at a bar on Colfax on the blood side of the board. Quik did throw a 40oz at the crips in the crowd, cause they were throwing they signs cause in his song “Tonight” instead of saying “shoot some craps” Quik said “shoot some crabs.” Quik did get chased off the stage. Some of the crips there that night that I knew personally Deacon, Shelton, I think big 5-duece was there, etc. there were way too many crips there that night for Quiks boys to put a beat down.
        Not to name drop, but bro I know all the OG’s on both sides. The highest ranking Blood in Denver is Big D (Darryl). I won’t say his last name on here but if you know bloods out here you know who he is. Nex generation of bloods Big Rodney and his crew. The highest ranking crip got killed a couple years ago by another crip. Michael Asberry who brought criips to Denver in the mid/late 80’s RIP got blunted with him back in the day. Bro I go back to before we had bloods or crips, back in the BOYZ days. I went to school with the original BOYZ, still se some of the homeys a couple of them Joe, Darryl my relative T-Bone coaching youth football with the Lions org.
        Bro with all respect not certain where you got your info from, but I got mine from the source, not street rumors. Peace.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        The E is the Cage, (Curtis Park) 5 points, The 30’s blocks, and city park area. And over there by Mr A’s and s**t. You’re generalizing where downtown is but trying to be broad about the E. N****z aint banging on Colfax and Ogden. Colfax and Washington is not the E. All that “my brother this” and “My homie that” is grade school s**t with all due respect and if you really knew people in that life I’m sure they wouldn’t appreciate you typin all their business in public forum, so chill out.

      • ZUBU

        You act like city park ain’t 2 blocks from colfax. Yes I will give you they bang harder deeper into the hood. The homegirls lil brotha shot the female cop in city park last year a block from colfax. Once again you cross Colorado blvd you either step into crip or blood turf. East high school crip turf (on Colfax). You don’t seem to know the zones very well. All the bloods I know won’t go anywhere near the Fillmore, cause they know they out of bounds, like a crip won’t go to the ReadyRoom of Syracuse and 11th. cause they out of bounds. Dude I think you one of them stay in the house playstation dudes, cause if you think they not banging in those spots you named you don’t know the city.
        Also unless you in your mid to late 40’s you were not at the Quik concert and you don’t know any of the players from that era. I can tell you every section of the metro area and whats poppin in the area, cause I know the city. You ask if I really know the aforementioned people (??) That is how out of touch you are everybody who ever had anything to do with the streets in Denver know who I named. Big D is about 50 years old now. Big Rodney had his foot cut off last year due to diabetes. Everyone knows another crip killed Michael Ashberry they caught the dude. Everyone knows Big D runs the bloods, he just got home last year he ran the joint in prison. All the prison staff knew he ran shit and they let him because he kept order in there so they let him do his thang. You act like I’m giving away secrets or something all of this is common knowledge to everyone but squares like you. Nothing wrong with being a square just don’t jump online pretending like you know the streets when you don’t. Fronting like you had insight on something that happened 21-22 years ago when you were still a child. The moral to this story stay out of grown folks business. Further more the homey Petey got a bailbonds business on colfax and clinton (old Aurora). go in there and ask him what happened with Quik that night he promoted the show. Oh they bang/slang in old Aurora off of colfax. A few years ago the homegirl got shot in the leg across the street from his shop.
        You prolly need to stay in the house cause you will get twisted out here in the lanes….. Oh I ain’t never bang, I just got paper on both sides of the board I’m good. You best stay in the house where its safe fro lames like you!

      • @Real_SirJamie

        You contradict yourself hopping online personally attacking me from behind your computer about banging, then admitting you don’t. Then agreeing with me about where people get down here. REALLY we’re BOTH wrong for even typing ANY of this stuff online. But the difference between you and I, Is I don’t have to call names and internet troll to get my point across. I would never say ANYONES name I know. I never asked if you knew anyone. Maybe that’s what you have to say to hype yourself up to argue. You talking about common knowledge? Those dudes you named couldn’t be googled 15-20 years ago. They JUST put those dudes names in papers like the Westword and Denver Post in like 2006. so ANYONE can google them and act informed. But whatever with your name calling. I don’t have anything to prove to an online community, and those street guys, knowing them, or lack of knowing them doesn’t affect me in life. I don’t even know why I came at you about some low life s**t like that. Just felt I needed to point out a discrepancy in your story, but I should know Denver dudes are salty about that L. I apologize gangster. Carry on getting money or whatever, knowing dudes like that you won’t be around long.

      • ZUBU

        As you indicated nothing to prove, but Quik got chased off stage. In fact it even made the local news broadcasts back when it happened. If I recalll I think Quik even dashed of stage and left some of his boys. If I recall the police either arrested or cited Quik at his hotel or at the old Stapleton airport.
        The only person that has ever had a story written about them that I’m aware of was Michael Asberry who did a huge interview before he got killed. When I say common knowledge I refer to common hood knowledge if you have a ear for the streets. Also everyone I mentioned are doing positive things like coaching raising their family, etc. I NEVER claimed to bang so I’m not certain where you got that from. I’m just very well connected to brothas on both sides. Myself and my relatives we were known for getting paper not banging, often time all of that intertwines so you meet a lot of people. As far as Denver brothas being salty about taking an L, it didn’t happen bro there were essentially nothing but crips in the venue that night. No bloods went to that event, even as recent as a couple years ago I saw Snoop at the same venue, and the place was packed with crips, not a blood in site. I know they may not bang on Colfax and Odgen like they do on 34th and York, but it still is crip turf. The barbershop on Josephine in Colfax (Hollywoods Babershop). I know the brotha who owns it and you can’t pay a blood to go in there because it’s across the board in crip turf even though its on Colfax. As I’ve heard many homies say you don’t want to get caught out of bounds.
        As far as googling people, smh please some of these brothas I have known 30 plus years, know their siblings, parents. Most of the OG’s I and my cousins grew up with. The brothas I mentioned have retired they just still have power and influence, and in some cases legendary street status.
        As far as me not being around for long, wishful thinking on your part. I used a lot of my resources from back in the day to help my lil sister through college, then graduate school. I then put myself through college graduated from C.U. Denver downtown, Cum Laude. Just because people know the streets doesn’t mean they don’t know other things. Also I’m an honorably discharged veteran, but I also know the streets. Thank you for the apology, and I’m gonna apologize to you for what you deemed to be a personal attack. Oh, I’ve never called my self a gangster, just a business man. It was never about red or blue, it was about green. I know more bloods but I was good with both cause I never claimed either side.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Respect, I would never wish death on another man. We have semi-similar backgrounds and probably know some of the same people. But I am younger. I’m really just stating fact. I lived on 21st & Gaylord for a while, and I remember telling crips “I’m from the E too. I grew up on 21st and G” only to have them LOL and say, “lil homie, it don’t even go down like that over there, You ever lived in the 30’s?” Me saying “No” and them telling me “That aint even really the Eastside, The REAL E starts in the 30’s” so these are THEIR words not mine. And THAT’S closer than the Fillmore, but I digress. All the people I know from that life I distanced myself from to pursue a career in Law. I apologized because yes I know about that life, but I want nothing to do with it, or anyone involved in it or glorifying it. (Not saying thats what you’re doing) I never meant any disrespect sir. And I hear stories ALL THE TIME from people claiming to know, be related to, OR was somehow loosely involved in that DJ Quik scenario. Hell a “O.G.” who is ALSO 40 plus who lived down the street from me said him and his friends were the ones that did it. He is a crip but c’mon, was everyone from the E there? People just want to feel involved and apart of something. Congrats on turning it around though. People seldom make it out of that lifestyle. Your apology is also accepted. Really this dialogue is good for those unaware of the gang life, AND those who think Colorado is just full of ski slopes and white folks. I think you and I had to tell some people that in another post when I had the moniker “Look At Me King”. Denver may SEEM like a cow town, but we are the perfect example that there is violence EVERYWHERE.

      • ZUBU

        Bro you are so right, and once again I apologize. I do recall talking to you under your other screen name, and we did have to tell some peeps on here about Denver. Brotha years ago when I joined the Navy a lot of East coast brothas (NYC, NJ, Philly, DC, etc.) they didn’t even believe we had brothas out here and the brothas we had here they thought were soft. It didn’t help that I was relatively articulate even back then. I think last year Denver made one of those gangland shows or something, and a few people from different parts of the country were like dang I didn’t know they got down like that. I was like yeah and they just showed some of the Mexican gangs out here. I told them they didn’t even show the black gang activity out here.
        Best wishes on your lifestyle changes. I’m not out there like that anymore, but I guess I’m somewhat still connected because me and my cousins know so many people that we still hear all the news in the streets. Oftentimes I may get word before the stories hit the newspaper or the local news stations. Like the city park shooting last year, I heard that the day before someone had run up in a barbershop near the Holly in Park Hill, and shot someone in the face I believe. They believed some crips had did it, so I knew there would be payback. So bloods went to city park looking to get at crips during the jazz show. I didn’t know they were gonna do that but I had heard they were gonna do something. Smh.. I have not gone to Jazz at the park in several years cause of that type of stuff. Several years ago bloods about 30 deep went to jazz at the park just looking to beef with crips, but in the process they were rude, disrespectful to families there trying to enjoy the show. I think thats when they started having a larger police presence. Since they closed M&D’s over near Manuel high school, and closed Ms. Ethels Sould food in the points I don’t even get over there much anymore. Same thing with Park Hill, I pretty much stay out of the hoods, but as indicated I still hear all the hood chatter. Once again my brotha you doing the correct thing staying way from the mess. Peace Brotha….

      • JondoE303

        Curtis park is not the cage the cage over there near 28th and Lafayette

      • JondoE303

        Hell yea my dude that was bricc city crips that did that one of the first crip sets in Colorado dj quik had to throw a 40 ounce at them ninjaz to keep them bustin his ass!

      First thing Maino said was, “You wanted to holla at me?” Sounds like TJ requested this convo.

    • DJ7

      NY hip hop will always be alive B…don’t believe the hype….the ppl @ the top has an agenda and when southern rap starts becoming a problem, it too will vanish from the airwaves…believe that

  • Charter

    “Niggaz” love playing King of the Ants… meanwhile they’re all handing over a big chunk of every check they get to some old whitey that don’t give two sh!ts about them.

    NYC UNABASHEDLY dehumanizes black folks, yet here we have Maino all bloated-chested, ready to “ride for his city”… silly “niggaz”.

  • JUSROMAN

    Honestly, this is silly. One man is mad at another man for something he said about a city that neither of them own one peice of. Grown men don’t act like girls over a comment about a city that doesn’t gives to shits about you today or tomorrow. I agree with Tre C; instead of making phone calls, make some dope music to shut him and everyone up, smh@Maino….

  • Papi Peligro

    Man I wished Trinidad James would’ve just told him something.

    • Spirit Equality

      You can always feel free to tell Maino something yourself when he stops through your town. LOL….

      • Papi Peligro

        You saying that like he can pay for a plane ticket. Let alone fly THE PEOPLE who gonna TAKE THE CHARGE FOR HIM. I live in Florida. Pull that mall stunt if you want too.

        These dudes don’t live on Olympus. Him and Trinidad James twitter beef ain’t my business. But I ain’t no 15 year old girl in the mall.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        You must not have seen what happened to Bunky S.A., or that “fan” in the crowd talking crazy.

      • Papi Peligro

        like I said. AGAIN. I don’t pay no respect to nobody picking on people they feel they can bully. THAT AIN’T HEART. AIN’T NO MANHOOD IN THAT. If you stand up for your belief that’s 1 thing. Cause you punking 15 year old girls. And people in the audience when you got security backing you. Or Trinidad James cause you think they smaller. That’s lame.

        If he really cared about New York. Where was he @ Wayne or Kendrick.
        Like WAYNE SAID WORSE THAN THAT. Maino dropped a track with him. So WHO THE REAL P^SS!. Maino or Trinidad James who said what he had to say to Everybody and didn’t back down from his belief. Or cats that come out the woodwork when they smell blood. Liston once the round start he’ll waive off the match. Same go for Joe Budden. And all these other cats.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Those are different situations. Wayne said “Flat out, I don’t like N.Y.” because of his gun charge situation. Anyone can sympathize with that. Main doesn’t have “security” like you think either. Just Big Greg (who usually has to hold MAIN back) and some H.H. goons but ok fam. No need to go back and forth with me. One thing Maino has proved is he IS with the dumb shit. So if you feel so confident hit him up on twitter or something and challenge him?

      • Papi Peligro

        I don’t mess with a dude it ain’t my business. I just said I wish Trinidad said something back. Let alone risk charges over dumb stuff like He Said she said Twitter beef and stupid opinions. That’s how a man operate. I don’t know dude to be like. Oh I gotta prove to some cats on ALLHIPHOP I’m a man. Men don’t do that especially 35 year olds. MAINO LIKE 40 +. punking 15 year old girls. If I was in Trinidad’s situation. I would’ve told him something. THAT’S ME. In this scenario.

        If I was to say something.
        Dude took offense to what I WAS SAYING.
        I would have told him something bout himself.

        Then tried to get IN my face or get all threatening.
        I ain’t young Burg, Life with Jenks dude, A fan in no crowd, A 15 YEAR OLD AT THE MALL. If you quoting these situations as to what the out come is going to be. I’M TELLING YOU FROM A MAN PERSPECTIVE THAT’S NOT HOW ITS GOING TO HAPPEN.

        If we talking about Trinidad James. I WISH HE WOULD’VE TOLD HIM SOMETHING.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        1. Maino just turned 40. He’s not “40 plus” but I get your point he seems childish in your opinion.

        2. You’re naming situations I didn’t bring up, and dudes that was talking crazy because they felt comfortable. I’m talking about how he beat up 2 members from Junior Mafia, and Bunky S.A. who was on GANGLAND.

        3. What you seem to not understand about people in that life, is that they don’t give a f**k who you are, or how old you are, or your gender. They will tolerate no form of disrespect, so people NOT in that life should tread lightly.

        3. You sound like what Maino is talking about. You either have an opinion on the situation or not. But when you start typing all tough on some “I bet he wouldn’t do that TO ME.” NOW you’re challenging that man, AND his manhood. So like I said. Why don’t you HIT HIM up and tell HIM?

      • Papi Peligro

        Again.
        1. Dude said you can always feel free to tell Maino yourself.
        A. It ain’t my business. I said I wish Trinidad James would’ve told him something.
        B. What I look like fighting or threatening or having a phone conversation over twitter or the internet.
        C. If he take it. You take it. Like I’m attacking his manhood yo manhood. Anybody manhood. WE GONE GO BACK AND FORTH ON THE NET BOUT WHAT I WOULD DO AND WHAT HE WOULD DO.
        D. Junior Mafia WHOEVER else he handled whoop whoop. This is stand your ground state and I have no felonies. I’m not saying I’m a gangsta. Look @ George Zimmerman.

        E. Oppinion on his manhood. From my perspective. You slapping up Little Girls, Young Burg < Same thing, A nerdy Bill Gates white dude, Some midgets from Junior Mafia. That make you hard.
        F. If you got an opinion on my manhood CAUSE I DON'T HIT THIS DUDE ON TWITTER? Care less.
        G. On the Wayne Situation. You making excuses Wayne ne'em was beefing with Hot 97 at the time. HE HAD JUST BANNED ALL OF Young Money from performing @ SUMMER JAM. WAYNE HAS NEVER SAID HE MEANT I DON'T LIKE IT CAUSE OF MY INCARCERATION. He said if you don't like I don't care. Neither has people around him EVER said he was talking about his incarceration. WHY NOT MAINO ASK HIM TO CLARIFY. That was WAY WORSE than what Trinidad James said.
        H. MAINO was getting clowned by NYC hiphop heads the same way they clown Nikki Minaj and Trinidad James with that HI HATER.

  • Papi Peligro

    Maino the same cat punking 15 year old girls over twitter post on how garbage he is.

  • jd

    Is this what rap has come to?!? Trinidad James vs. Maino?!?!? I’m going to listen to some country music.

  • True_Fan

    This highlights the wackness of NY, the legends wouldn’t feel threatened by Trinidad James. Maino is just trying to look like a tough guy, recording a phone conversation like a chick. Maino goes so hard for a state that has stop and frisk, NY has lost it.

  • baller187

    the problem is maino has been washed up so it means nothin, trinanad now knows if u want to make money you have to go though new york, but ny need a kingpin to speak but as of now they dont have anyone, JAY Z but he is to big for this non sense

  • Suava

    NY Niggas dont listen to maino music tho ,so idk why he is trying to go so hard ,

  • keylon jackson

    this how ny still run the shit … niggaz bout that life

  • Live Well

    He was Detroit Red when he was on that stage and then became Malcolm X when he was on that phone.

    • ZUBU

      LMAO!!! Bro he went even further he went to MLK maybe even Ghandi.. lol

      • Live Well

        LOL! Hell yeah! Maino changed that boy’s religion.

      • ATLonDaRise

        hes also about black unity and power.

      • Live Well

        When did that happen? That’s not what I hear in them weak raps of his.

      • ATLonDaRise

        He’s been that way. Before he was a rapper he was a civil rights leader. He has since changed but still remains a militant minded black man. He represents all of trinidad and they worship that man.

      • Live Well

        Did you just say Trinidad Damn James was a civil rights leader?!?! LOL You got it, bruh. I’m done.

      • ATLonDaRise

        bruh quit playin he only said that cuz hes spiritual

    • ATLonDaRise

      shut up! James punked maino

      • Live Well

        It’s alright, bruh. ATL is still dope, you just got a clown in ya town.

  • 1SOFLO1

    No real dude will record a conversation POINT BLANK PERIOD!!! No respect!!!

  • ATLonDaRise

    Man James punked maino on the low and yall aint even see. James is from trinidad and reps what trinidad dudes are about. Go to trinidad, they LOVE that man!

  • DJ7

    All this chatter about Maino being this and he should be doing that is some hypocritical bullsh*t you internet warriors are known for…listen, if no one would of stood up and addressed what TJ said, the comment section would have been filled with the same keyboard soldiers professing how soft NY is…sometimes I wonder about who it is that’s really behind these screens….
    As for NY hip hop being dead and blah blah blah…nonsense!!!! It’s alive and will be as long as there’s a beat whether it’s from a drum machine, beatbox or what have you…intelligent folks know the real deal and why there’s a lack of true hip hop being the focal point coming out of their airwaves, be it NY, Cali, Midwest or the South…this discussion has been aired out many a times and you slow cats are the only ones who seem to keep rehashing it…the agenda is real and when the ppl at the top feel the need to pull the plug on what’s poppin right now b/c it’s becoming a threat, be it financially or the disruption of the current social order, trust me, they won’t hesitate. Enjoy what you got for as long as you got it b/c at the drop of a hat…it too shall be a memory!

    • @Real_SirJamie

      Very good points. People google s**t about people and music and just think they can type and say whatever. OF COURSE the radio is going to play what is currently hot. The POPULAR SOUND. That’s why it’s called POP MUSIC. I don’t even call that s**t on the radio “Hip Hop” anymore. It’s Pop. Here’s one thing I’ve been thinking about though. Why get mad at a “Sound”???? DJ Premier is from where? TEXAS. But he makes “Boom Bap” right? Same with 9th Wonder. He’s from N.C. (Which is considered the south) so isn’t it safe to say that all of that is “South Music”?

      • DJ7

        Premo idolized Marley Marl fam…That man is his #1 inspiration for makin that boom bap sound…NY through and through…As for 9th? Not really up on this brotha’s history to give a definitive answer b.u.t. I see Premo’s influence throughout his work to which all goes back to Marley who was initially influenced by the brotha Kool Herc…So to answer your question about it all being South music? Hip hop is a fusion of varies types of sounds from various genres of music from various places b.u.t. It’s all black music, it’s black culture, it comes from the ghetto. How can you not relate to ghetto people when that’s the rawest form of blackness? If you want to take it a step further we’d most likely trace it all the way back to the motherland b.u.t. for the sake of argument I’ll just chalk it up as NY being it’s birthplace.

      • @Real_SirJamie

        Wacka Flocka is from Queens. Hold this L.

      • DJ7

        True dat b.u.t in his impressionable years he was raised as an ATLien…By the time he got on, the Southern music scene was in full throttle and it was a get in where you fit in type of situation

      • @Real_SirJamie

        LOL I was just joking fam.

      • DJ7

        haha…see how I went in defense mode…quick…I was about to bring out the ol’ MC Shy D defense mechanism

      • @Real_SirJamie

        No I feel you. My whole Wacka flocka and those producers thing pretty much coincides with what you were saying about influence. Saying “this sound” and “that sound” in my opinion is dumb when you have dudes like Tupac, who’s from N.Y., but repped the west like he was born there. Or dudes like the producers I mentioned. Or Jay Electronica, who’s from N.O., but when you listen to his music he sounds like a Bronx native.

      • Jayson C Williams

        I like this guy we need more educated blacks to speak on hip hop more often than a lot of these clowns

    • Jayson C Williams

      Truth

    • Papi Peligro

      Selective G Checking ain’t hard. NOBODY WAS ASKING WHERE THAT MAINO REPLY WAS FOR KENDRICK LAMAR. Or where was that Maino Reply for Lil Wayne. Where was MAINOS response to PIMP C.

      I mean not even JOE BUDDEN got at him. At he the gate keeper of NY (from Jersey) on this type stuff.

      MAINO MAKES RADIO MUSIC. HI HATER HI HATER HI HATER. So he ain’t got that excuse. No disrespect.

      Of course New York cats run HipHop still. YOU ARGUING HIPHOP HISTORY WITH Trinidad James somebody WHO ADMITTEDLY DIDN’T START RAPPING UNTIL LIKE 6 MONTHS before his first song went GOLD. I mean he SAID NEW YORK USED TO BE HARD WITH DIPSET rap style. Now I got respect for Dipset. But they weren’t even tops in there era of New York at the time. Trinidad James didn’t say nothing but you trying to make DOWN SOUTH MUSIC and you from New York. If ANYBODY should be offended it should be Waka Flaka or A$AP Rocky. HE DIDN’T SAY NOTHING DISRESPECTFUL ABOUT NEW YORK RAP. NEW YORK CITY. He just said go make NEW YORK MUSIC. Stop dissing DOWN SOUTH people for being bamas not true hiphop. THEN GOING AND MAKING DOWN SOUTH MUSIC.

      • DJ7

        What? How did you deduce all of that from my comment?

      • Papi Peligro

        Naw I was just saying like if no one responded nobody would’ve thought NY was soft. Cause dude didn’t DISS NY. He dissing cats making down South Music from New York.

      • DJ7

        OK fam…you run with that thought b.u.t. I know that the “media” would have had a field day with it…it’s “bigger” than a Trinidad James and Maino sparring session…

    • Papi Peligro

      WHEN TRINIDAD JAMES SAID WHAT HE SAID THIS WHAT I GOT OUT OF IT.

      My only intentions when I said what I said, was to get New York radio — the main stations, to play more young New York artists,” he explained. “Don’t just give me an hour of the classics, the legends. Of course we know Jada, Fab, Jay Z, etc. What about the Action Bronsons, the Troy Aves, the Black Daves, all these other artists who I would like to hear on the radio? All I hear is southern artists.”

      THAT’S WHAT IT SOUND LIKE HE SAID.

      • DJ7

        SMH….did you not watch the “initial” video that is responsible for the clarification video? I encourage you to do so, it may just clear up your misconceptions. Chronological order is the key to putting things in proper perspective.

      • Papi Peligro

        I mean I ain’t gone put no more on it. When I first heard dude say it. WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT OF HIS MOUTH. I thought he was saying. We was on your stuff like man we can’t do that lets go do it our way. Now New York cats sounding like Down South Cats. We run your sound. To me that’s not a diss unless you out here dropping down south Music. SKY ZOO Cool. Uncle Murda straight.

        Down south we do the same thing to ours EXAMPLE in memphis they was dissing Khia Shine for that same reason. Oh you from Memphis but would drop memphis music now we getting Academy Awards you want to remember the south. Khia Shine my dude. But I can’t get mad at that real.

        EVERYONE IN NY SAYING THE SAME THING.

        Chuck Strangers: I feel like, if you listen to down-South music, or West Coast music, or Midwestern music, you hear their old sound and their new sound, and it makes sense. But when you hear old New York shit and new New York shit, you’re like, “What the #uck?”

      • DJ7

        That holds true when comparing “standard” industry bullsh*t b.u.t. I disagree that EVERYBODY IN NY ARE SAYING THE SAME THING…There are plenty of NY cats that stayed traditional b.u.t. don’t get the buzz b/c it doesn’t fit the agenda that’s being pushed, point ___. As you, I’m also tired of beating that dead horse. It leads nowhere and ends there as well… It is what it is for right now and when the folks at the top want it to change, it will change, regardless of how you or I feel about it…
