Mixtape Review | Trinidad James – No One Is SaFe

Wow. That cover art is dope af… Anyway, this mixtape came out like 17 days after his EP. The WAKE Up was surprisingly good, so I’m actually expecting this to be decent. This was supposed to be an album at first. He tweeted that the album would be free because he was dropped from Def Jam Recordings and that everyone who helped him with it would not be paid because he has “no money.” That’s sad…

That's sad…

Track 1: Jerome In Da House (Prod. J. Padron & Villo)

This beat is dope af. His flow is cool. It’s nothing special, but it works. The beat’s real dark. I fuck with this hook too. His bars obviously aren’t on the level of Lupe Fiasco, but this is quite an improvement from All Gold Everything. I fuck with this. This is dope af. 5/5

Track 2: H.O.M.E. (Hatin’ On Me) Feat. ILoveMakonnen (Prod. Sonny Digital)

The Worst Song Of All Time

That acronym doesn’t work. I already know I’m finna hate this song because it has ILoveMakonnen on it. I didn’t think music could get any worse than French Montana. Then Young Thug blew up. I didn’t think it could get any worse than that. Then ILoveMakonnen blew up. What the fuck is happening? I guess the lesson to be learned is that music can always get shittier. Okay, the song is starting now. Trinidad James is giving some weird ass intro about how he’s in love with losers or some shit. I don’t know what the fuck he’s talking about. Oh God… What the fuck… What the fuck is this shit? ILoveMakonnen is just… Oh nooooooooo…. What the fuck is happening… Oh fuck. Oh fuck. Oh fuck no. No! NOO! NOOOOOO! WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT! ILOVEMAKONNEN…! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHY THE FUCK DOES THE HOOK LAST SO FUCKING LONG? ILOVEMAKONNEN WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME! HOLD UP HOLD UP HOLD UP. That’s it. I’m done. Turn the fucking song off. Okay, it’s paused right now… ILoveMakonnen… What are you doing? Seriously… What the fuck is this? Do you listen to this shit before you release it? You can’t seriously think that this is good music… I don’t know if I can get through this shit… This is… Okay, nevermind. Just… Ok. I’m about to press play again. I’m gonna do my best to express how I feel as the song continues. I’m more than one minute into the song and the fucking horrible hook from ILoveMakonnen is still going. It doesn’t end until the 1:20 mark. Oh my God. Not only is this incredibly unpleasant to the ear, but it’s unbelievably corny. No. Why is this song… Why is it like this? Please. Please just stop. Stop. This is so bad. It’s so bad. It’s so bad. It’s so bad. It’s so fucking bad. Oh no. ILoveMakonnen has a verse. Why? Why would you let this man have a verse? What is this? Who is this man? What is this man? This is not… WHAT THE FUCK? DIS BRUDDA BARELY SAYIN’ SHIT! I MEAN HE LIKE BARELY GETS HIS WORDS OUT! WHAT? WHAT? FUCK! FUUUUCKKKK! This is so bad. That’s it. I’m done. Turn it off. Wow. Okay. That was so bad. That song is so bad. It’s over. It’s finally over. Why? WHY? Why would somebody… This might just be the worst song that I have ever heard in my entire life. It’s worse than 305 To My City. It’s worse than Doo Doo Head. It’s worse than Trap House. It’s worse than OMG. Fuck. It’s even worse than War. This song is unrealistically bad. How is this even possible? Were they trying to make a shitty song? They couldn’t have been because the beat honestly isn’t that bad. It’s not good, but it really ain’t that bad. When the song was playing I wanted to die. This is garbage. I… Yeah, this is garbage. Fuck this song. Fuck ILoveMakonnen. Which is a STUPID name but the way. “Oh man I love Makonnen! I love ILoveMakonnen! I love to listen to ILoveMakonnen’s self titled project, ILoveMakonnen!” Fuck you. I don’t love ILoveMakonnen. I hate him. I hate ILoveMakonnen. Every time I say his stage name I tell a lie. Fuck ILoveMakonnen. His music is just so bad. It’s so fucking bad. It’s just awful. It’s on a whole other level of bad. This is the wackest song I’ve ever reviewed. I think. 1/5

Track 3: ALLAU$ Feat. OG Maco (Prod. Marteini)

It’s been like 6 days since I listened to that H.O.M.E. song. It was so bad that it made me stop listening to music for six days. This song better be good. I actually like OG Maco, so it’s definitely better than the shit with ILoveMakonnen. That song is so bad… OH fuck yeah this shit is dope. OG Maco has the same explosive delivery from U Guessed It. The beat is crazy. This is fuckin’ dope. Wow. This is a very strange project so far. One great song, a fucking horrific song, then another great song. This song is great. OG Maco’s lyrics are pretty fuckin’ stupid, but his crazy delivery makes up for it. The beat is trap I guess, but it sounds really different. I guess you could call it experimental trap music. It’s like trap music, but not as lazy as trap music usually sounds. Trinidad James has a really crazy delivery too. I wouldn’t say that he’s jackin’ OG Maco’s flow because he yelled like this before Maco blew up. Maco’s just a little more over the top. This is pretty much just trap music. It’s really entertaining tho. This is trap music at it’s best. I fuck with this. This is dope af. Trinidad James & OG Maco should work together more often because this was great. OG Maco>ILoveMakonnen. 5/5

Track 4: Definition Of A Fuck Nigga Feat. Problem & Lil Debbie (Prod. Watch The Duck)

This might be terrible. Watch The Duck is cool sometimes, but they always try to add this dubstep shit to they music and it just ruins it. I hate dubstep. It sounds like a robot donkey orgy. It sounds like someone clicked the record button in GarageBand and then flushed they computer down the toilet. Dubstep it just a whirlpool of sounds that don’t make sense. It’s loud and obnoxious. Dubstep music is so fucking annoying to me. I really hope they don’t try to shoehorn that shit into this song. This beat sounds kinda like DJ Mustard. That’s a bad thing. Whoever the fuck Lil Debbie is is giving some annoying ass intro about basic bitches. She sounds like one of the basicest bitches ever tho… This song is ignorant as fuck. “Girl fuck yo boyfriend / I know you ain’t happy / I know you need a real nigga and I can make it happen” This hook is bad. He just sounds like an overly aggressive Drake. Not feelin’ the concept of this song. I just feel like a dumbass listening to this shit, which is weird because I felt pretty smart while listening to ALLAU$. This beat is boring. The hook is wack. The concept of the song is weak. James is strugglin’ with the bars too. He rhymes words with themselves a little too often for me. This is a stupid song. Lil Debbie’s flow isn’t too bad, but her bars are just so fucking stupid. I feel like I’m listening to the most ignorant chick on the planet tell me that she’s bad af. Her rapping is bad. I don’t know what she look’s like, so I can’t really say whether or not she’s bad… But her voice is annoying. She reminds me of Lin Z. That’s a really bad thing. Her bars are just so fucking stupid. “make money, make money, make money, make money, make money money.” Oh my God. I feel like this is what someone from my school would come up with if they tried to make a Hip Hop song. Where is Problem? James got a third verse. This song is almost 5 minutes long. That’s way too long for such a generic song. This song is boring as hell. Problem’s verse wasn’t that bad, but it was ruined by Lil Debbie’s annoyin’ ass yellin’ all over the track. She’s so annoying. SHUT THE FUCK UP! Nah. I ain’t feelin’ this at all. This is wack af. At least there wasn’t any dubstep… 1/5

Track 5: Only N Atlanta Feat. PeeWee Longway & Offset (Prod. Villo)

This is either gonna be really fuckin’ bad or really entertaining. This beat is dope af. The hook’s kind of annoying, but I fuck with it. This beat is dope af. James’ verse was wack, but it worked. This is another trap song btw. This is a lot more standard than ALLAU$ was. PeeWee Longway’s flow is a little sloppy. It’s not terrible tho. His verse was underwhelming. He probably shoulda been on the hook. Offset’s verse was average. For him. It was wack by regular Hip Hop standards. This song is alright. It’s average for trap music. My biggest problem with it is the annoying hook. It’s not terrible tho. 3/5

Track 6: Talk That Shit, Trinidad (Prod. ForteBowie & J. Padron)

Wow, this intro is stupid af. Nobody wants to hear this shit man just get to the music. He sounds so stereotypical on this intro. This beat is weird. I don’t know how I feel about it. Not really feelin’ the hook. It ain’t that bad tho. This song is alright. It gets pretty boring after a few seconds. The hook is kinda wack. The beat is strange. It’s cool I guess. It just gets old quickly. It’s alright I guess. Kinda wack. Definitely worse than the previous track. Not terrible tho. It’s still pretty wack tho. Not feelin’ it. 2/5

Track 7: Shroom Party (Prod. Brandon Thomas)

Oh no. This shit about to be weird af. This hook isn’t bad. The beat’s cool I guess. Not sure how I feel about James’ flow on this first verse. The hook lasts a little too long. He could’ve cut it in half. Well, he probably couldn’t do that because he don’t got enough bars to fill up all that space, but he should have. I’m tired. This is alright. The beat’s cool. The hook’s alright, but it lasts too long. Not really feelin’ James’ flow. It’s not terrible. 3/5

Track 8: T James Express (Prod. DJ A)

Uh. Nah. I ain’t feelin’ this. It sounds like a dance beat you would hear in a club. Not a good club tho. A bad one. I guess. Trinidad James is looking for a girl with “a heart of gold.” I can’t do this hook. This is corny af. He keeps saying “A choo choo in that thang.” No please. Stop. This is awful. “All aboard the pussy train / A choo choo in that thang” This is just… This is bad. I’m not feelin’ this at all. I’m done with this. This is wack af. 1/5

Track 9: Fuck That Stress Feat. Scotty ATL (Prod. Kato)

Kato produces a lot of Jarren Benton’s music, so this should be good. Hopefully. The hook is cool. There’s some chick harmonizing with him. It doesn’t sound bad. This beat is dope af. This reminds me of some early Kanye shit. This song is really happy. Not in a corny way tho. I like it. Trinidad James’ verse wasn’t too bad. I even liked Scotty ATL’s verse, even tho he was kinda reachin’ with some of them rhymes… This is pretty dope. I fuck with this. 4/5

Track 10: My Rule Feat. K. Major (Prod. DJ Spinz & K. Major)

This beat is dope af. I don’t know how I feel about this hook. It’s a lil corny. It’s real corny. Nah. K. Major got kind of a weird voice. He sounds like The Dream kinda. Trinidad James’ singin’ is bad. His flow is kind of a mess too. He seems to be having trouble riding this beat. This is corny af. It’s at least kind of pleasant sonically. It’s alright I guess. It’s not horrible. I really wanted to like this song. The hook is just not that good… The hook makes up like 75% of the song too. It’s all hook. He just has one short 6 bar verse. It’s kind of hard to believe this song is three minutes long. I’m not feelin’ this. 2/5

Final Thoughts:

Wow. That was weird af. This is definitely worse than The WAKE Up. It’s pretty inconsistent. The first song was great, the second song was fucking awful, the third song was great and the fourth song was fucking awful. Most of the songs were bad, but the ones that were good were really fucking good. Trinidad James is honestly a pretty terrible rapper, but he can make some great songs. He’s got a great ear for beats and can come up with some catchy melodies, but he can also be really corny at times. If he spent a little more time on his bars and purged the corn, he would be a pretty good rapper. If you’re already a huge fan of Trinidad James, you may not even like this project. I don’t think he usually goes in this direction. The beats aren’t typical for trap music, but they do have trap elements. Experimental trap music is the best way to describe it. All of the features were pretty terrible with the exception of OG Maco. The songs with higher ratings are definitely worth checking out, but I don’t think it’s possible for anyone to like that second track…

  1. Oh my.
    I decided to check out “H.O.M.E.” last night just to see how bad it was, and dear god. The hook on that thing is hilariously bad. It’s so bad to the point where I refuse to believe that it’s real. And Makonnen’s verse, oh my.
    I’m used to hearing what’s considered “mumble rap”. I’m somebody who’s able to decipher just about any verse from Future, Young Thug, Uzi, OG Maco, and even Chief Keef, and I couldn’t make out a single word in Makonnen’s verse. I don’t exactly agree with the term “mumble rap”, but his verse is the only instance in which that term actually applies. He’s not even trying to enunciate. That track is so unrealistically horrific that it’s amazing.
    Also, the link to “Trap House” takes you to a video that’s been taken down. Are you referring to the Lil Durk track?
