During a performance at the Converse Rubber Tracks show in New York City, Trinidad James said that the south runs the New York rap scene. He said,“I remember when New York ran this sh*t, dog. When Dipset was f*ckin turned the f*ck up. Oh my God. I gotta wear my bandana on tilt like Juelz. What the f*ck happened, dog? I remember when New York rap was the sh*t. And us in the South, us bammas, we was like ‘what the f*ck’ and we just did our own thing. But now we run y’all musically. That’s crazy. I looked up to New York music. And now every n*gga that’s really poppin’ out of New York, you might as well tell they from Atlanta… I’m just putting it out there. Y’all got more bloggers, y’all got n*ggas interviewing more popular than n*ggas that’s rapping.” He laso said Future runs NY radio. OUCH!
Maino was offended by Trinidad’s words. He tweeted, “S/O to all the NY n*ggas who let this Rotten Teeth n*gga @TrinidadJamesGG disrespect us lastnite! #whathappened. after we clean this guy @trinidadjamesGG up I’m straighten a few of u NY n*ggas out for being the Vaginas that u R!” He continued, “Heyy buddy @trinidadjamesGG I’ll be ur Huckleberry! Lol imma brush those teeth when I see u baby boy. U a street n*gga rite? Lmao.” Maino then wrote, “Kendrick RAPPED his position on HIMSELF lyrically. That’s rap. James held a lecture on the state of affairs in NY?? Who the F*ck are you!!”
Trindad responded, “@mainohustlehard you a real n*gga Bruh. You don’t have to say that on twitter. You better than that. u can hit my line my ni*ga. That’s 100.” He later clarified his statements, saying, “I didn’t disrespect. Bt if you wanna think I did. Do what you feel is best. Either way I lose no sleep for being real. NY doesn’t support Ny.” He also wrote on Instagram, “Maino wanna shoot me for saying the truth then shoot on. I ain’t backtracking sh*t. Ny consumers are a disgrace to their own culture. I don’t ever have to make it on the radio ever. F*ck the radio. I’ll die a real n*gga. Maino responded, “Lmao dude on social media saying I “wanna shoot” him hahahaa nah man I just wanted to tie him to a Dentist’s chair.”
