“Trinidad James ain’t talking to me about that s**t,” said the Wu-Tang Clan member. “You better listen to my sh*t n***a.”

The life long NYC resident then goes on to share his view on why southern rappers have been so successful over the last several years. U God says it is because rappers from the south are more willingly to sign contracts that New Yorkers would not:

We want all our s**t. So that s**t traveled down south. So dudes started going down there with that bulls**t. But, I like the music personally. I ain’t getting caught up in what dudes be saying, but Trinidad James can knock it off with all that bulls**t. He ain’t saying nothing. N***a signed his life away. He getting 360 deals.
