All gold everything has now turned into copper for Trinidad James. On Saturday (Aug. 2), the 26-year-old rhymer went on Twitter to announce that he has been dropped from Def Jam Recordings.

He tweeted, “I should tell yall. I got dropped by the Label. My Album is now free. If u hear ur beat or verse on it. I hope u want dap cuz i got no money.”

After dropping the ‘hood classic ‘All Gold Everything,’ James signed a reported $2 million joint venture deal with Def Jam in 2012. Two years later, James has failed to release his first official debut album with the label. However, the Atlanta rapper did dropped two mixtapes: ‘Don’t be S.A.F.E.’ and ’10 PC Mild.’

Most recently, James released a cautionary song called ‘Rap Game Just Too Funny,’ on which he criticized dumb-witted music executives and the fickle rap industry.

And let’s not forget, James alienated the east coast with his critical remarks about New York City at a Brooklyn concert in 2013.

Reps at Def Jam have not released an official statement regarding Trinidad James’ departure yet.
