Iz Ah Trini: Trinidad James On Trinidad (+”All Gold Everything” Soca Remix)

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Trinidad James Shaggy

Rapper Trinidad James returned to his birthplace of Trinidad last week, performing at Machel Montano’s Machel Mondays concert and shooting a video for his new single “Females Welcome,” with a cameo from Shaggy. While there, he also released a soca remix (though soca-ish would describe it better) of his hit single “All Gold Everything” featuring Machel, Pitbull and Shaggy (Stream it, and watch a clip of him performing it at Machel Mondays with all three below). It seems Trinidad is really repping his Trini roots. And, to think, we weren’t sure if he was really Trini when we first came across him.

Video: Machel Montano + Freetown Collective “Represent” For Trinidad

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Machel Montano Represent

The 13-minute-long clip for Machel Montano and Trini band Freetown Collective‘s “Represent (Remix)” is definitely not your typical soca video. As much of a short film as it is a music video, the visuals are a continuation of God Loves the Fighter (read our story about it here), director Damian Marcano’s upcoming movie set against Port of Spain’s criminal underworld. And, though the song has a soca riddim, it’s message is a cultural one more typical of reggae.
