Words by Jesse Serwer—
As previously established, Atlanta rapper Trinidad James might rhyme and talk with a thick Southern drawl but he reps his homeland of T&T to the fullest. The MC’s breakthrough video, for “All Gold Everything,” dripped in Trini colors (even as it was shot in Clayton County, Georgia) while the visuals for his follow-up single, “Females Welcomed,” were shot in Port of Spain during Carnival season. So it’s hardly surprising that Mr. James goes to bat for Trini food, too. It would be hard not to, we suppose. From doubles to bake and shark, it’s one of the richest (and most slept-on, in our opinion) cuisines around.
