One of rap’s buzziest newcomers, Trinidad James has officially signed an exclusive major label deal with Def Jam.

Known for his catchy track ‘All Gold Everything,’ which has become a viral sensation, the 25-year-old Atlanta rapper also inked a deal for a joint venture with his Gold Gang Records. He reportedly cashed in on a cool $2 million as well. “Def Jam, thank you for believing,” James states.

“We’re excited to welcome a young talent like Trinidad James to the Def Jam family,” Joie Manda, President of Def Jam, told Billboard. “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.”

The rhymer, who’s been actively rapping for 10 months, recently dropped a new mixtape titled ‘Don’t Be S.A.F.E. (Sensitive as F— Everyday).’
