Fans of Trinidad Jame$‘ debut mixtape, Don’t Be S.A.F.E., have been familiar with the refrain “Now my side chick, my main chick and my main guhl ain’t feelin’ me no mo’, no mo’ ” for months. On Wednesday (March 27), the newly anointed member of XXL‘s Freshmen class Skyped into “RapFix Live” and dropped the flaming-hot visuals to accompany his banger “Female$ Welcomed.”
The buzz-worthy rapper, born Nicholas Williams, takes his stage name from his native Trinidad. Jame$ puts on for his city of Port of Spain in the new video, brandishing the flag and giving viewers a glimpse of the street corners, markets and natives that are the island’s heartbeat. This tour is mostly a shirtless one, so feast your eyes on that, but it’s a given that Jame$ will never, ever be without an enthusiastic layering of gold chains.
With a title like “Female$ Welcomed” it isn’t hard to imagine what the song itself is about. “F– love, it’s overrated/ Was disfellowshipped, now I’m reinstated/ Might need a witness, these b—-es crazy/ Let me say it again, these b—-es crazy.” Director Jonathan Mannion makes sure the visuals are just as raw as the verses.
Trinidad is a place of great beauty — peep the statuesque Caribbean women who dutty-wine on tabletops and masterfully drop it like it’s hot. The Miley Cyrus twerk team has nothing on these women, believe it.The 2013 XXL Freshmen have been revealed!
But it’s not “All Gold Everything”: At the two-minute mark, the song and story flip intensely. The devil himself makes an appearance as a trip-hop beat commences. Women ornately undressed in Carnival attire take the party to the streets, and fire-breathing men outfitted with horns and tails literally throw flames all around Jame$, the ringleader of the freaks who come out at night.
Watch it all now!
