Trinidad James made headlines last week when he inked a $2 million deal with Def Jam Recordings. But the "All Gold Everything" rapper didn't go out and spend money on some gaudy celebratory gift to himself. The Atlanta rapper says that he's keeping everything in perspective.
"Don't get me wrong, I'm happy, but I'm just not the type of guy to be like, 'Oh, ahh, let's go buy a Maserati.' Nah, I'm not that guy," he told MTV News.
"I mean, I don't really celebrate things like this," he said previously. "I just thank God for it and keep moving. I was already grinding and working, doing my thing so just in general this isn't doing nothing but adding more feel to the feeling I already had. We were already out of here. Shout-out to Def Jam for recognizing.
"My inspiration comes from life and everything in life because all I rap about is real life," he continued. "The real things that's going on in my life. So I don't ever call any artists' names, because - for what? When you hear something, you're gonna know where it came from."
