Trinidad Jame$ seems like a changed man after being released from his contract with Def Jam last year. While many artists could easily let the setback ruin not only their career but their self-confidence, the Atlanta rapper has double-downed on the indie grind and expanded on his sound — case in point: his new EP, The Wake Up. With guest appearances from Problem, Friend, 31, Trinidadians Neval and Denice Millien, the five-track freebie showcases Trinidad Jame$ ’s continued experimentation and his more honest, emotional approach: “Sometimes I wish I never started rapping,” he admits on “Get Dre$ $ ed.”
“All Gold Everything” feels like a decade ago at this point, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
