It would be egotistical to say that Trinidad Jame$‘ infamous “Hypebeasts, we know about ‘cha” quote directly correlated to the Atlanta rapper’s rise to stardom, but it seems as if ever since “All Gold Everything” dropped, things have been running smoothly for him. The buzzing rapper burst on the scene earlier this year, dropping a hit single, playing SXSW 2013, and doing countless guest features – most recently on A$AP Ferg’s “Work” remix. The Trinidad-born rhymer has enough energy and stage presence for two people, yet we caught him at a rare calm moment in New York City and Reed Space. Hypebeast TV got the inside scoop on Jame$’ love for basketball, upcoming features, and what exactly he meant by that line. Enjoy the video above.
