In case you missed the memo, Trinidad Jame$ is the breakout rapper of 2012. The fact that people all over the globe are singing about gold all in their watches is a bit of a feat considering Jame$ had only been rapping for ten months when he released his single, “All Gold Everything.” Though I can’t quite put my finger on it, there is something quite catchy about this little ditty. Erykah Badu seems to think the quick succession of the n-word said in three peat is what makes the song go…she called it beautiful and says that she listens to it in the mornings to get her day started off right.
So maybe it should come as no surprise that another pair of black celebs are also feeling Trinidad’s “All Gold Everything.” Check out Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington performing their version of this hit.
What do you think about the song? Are you surprised people like it so much?
