Don’t Believe Me Just Watch: Jamie Foxx & Kerry Washington Share Their Love For Trinidad Jame$

December 31, 2012  |  

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?

    I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone…why is he acceptable and the rest of these non-rapping buffoons isn’t??? Someone actually showed me the video for the first time last night and I woke up with a hangover-I am not sure if the two are related but I kinda think they are…

  • He’s actually from Ga, and his real legal name is Trinidad, I don’t know if it has anything to do with his heritage. My cousin says he went to my old high school but that’s what she said iono. But think that’s wassup for Trinidad especially coming from atlanta where every other dude you meet is a “rapper” lol I hope this just isn’t a one hit deal for him.

    I couldn’t believe that country sounding boy is really a Trini native… Sure fooled me. Anyhow, love Ms Kerry baby

      I mean he could have been born in America, but his parents be from Trinidad. Or he could have been brought here at a young age lol. Nicki M don’t have an accent….Anywho, i wonder if he’s gonna keep that look up, when i 1st saw him i thought it was a spoof
