Eh...Over-simplistic For It's Own Good...
on February 1, 2013
"All Gold Everything [Explicit]" is one of the latest rap singles to get plenty of attention. Trinidad James's cut is growing in popularity, perhaps partly because it is different from everything else on radio. That said, if "All Gold Everything" is a preview/snapshot into Trinidad James's sound and album, it is an acquired taste.
"All Gold Everything" seems to over-simplify everything - or if you wish, James seems to appreciate the simplest 'material' things in life. Trinidad James's approach is playful yet nonchalant - sort of an oxymoron if you will. His flow is slow and relaxed, yet the perception is his laid-back approach coincides with the luxury of which he details on this single. And guess what those luxuries/themes he raps about? Haters, money, women, substances, and 'gold'. True to it's title, James wants "All Gold Everything". Verdict? Personally, I'm not sold, but to each his own. Flashbacks of Chief Keef's disappointing, empty Finally Rich come to mind.
