This was pretty much confirmed at his debut NYC concert last week, when both Def Jam’s Sr. Vice President Shawn Pecas and President Joie Manda attended the function, but now it’s official: ten months rapping + one critically successful mixtape + one hit single = meet Def Jam’s newest employee of the month.
“Def Jam, thank you for believing,” says Trinidad James.
“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.” –Billboard
