Hear a Pair of New Trinidad Jame$ Tracks, “Mr. Officer” and “448”

Trinidad James show two different sides of himself on “Mr. Officer” and “448.”

Though the news van lights have dimmed in Ferguson, the issues surrounding the protests in Missouri are still felt. Trinidad Jame$ takes his own stab at the issues of black men and law enforcement on "Mr. Officer."  The gospel chorus, sung by a gummy choir of kids over a Keywane breakbeat, makes the song that much more affecting than the narrative of a routine police stop gone wrong. But on "448" he's back to scheduled programming, a straightforward trap banger that James attacks with a welcomed joy. There's two sides to every all gold coin.
