Trinidad James’s career thus far has been a cautionary tale for independent artists who are considering signing with a major label. He had big success with mega-hit All Gold Everything and was quickly signed to a major label. After a brief stint with Def Jam Records, Trinidad is back in his comfort zone as an independent artist keeping his fans happy. With a renewed sense of freedom, he’s recording his new solo album as well as a compilation album featuring the artists he has signed to his new label Gold Gang Records. With this major life change comes a change of home address from Atlanta to LA. On the West Coast, he’s been able to dig deeper into his creative side and pursue other personal dreams and passions in the art and fashion world.
