Just as Ca$h Out’s “Cashin’ Out” was the breakout Atlanta rap single of the first half of 2012, Trinidad James’s “All Gold Everything” ruled the year’s B-side, making a catchphrase out of the line “Pop a molly, I’m sweatin’” while screwing the beat down to a Codeine-ready 50 bpm. Unlike Ca$h Out, James also released a tape full of hot beats and entertaining rhymes, most of them slant, unified by an original aesthetic equal parts 2 Chainz and Shock G. Tonight, he pops one more molly and heads to S.O.B.’s for a Hot 97 showcase. With Vinny Cha$e, Danse, and SNL.
