    Hip-hop artists stunt exceptionally well at the best of times.

    Well that ride didn’t last too long. After signing with Def Jam back in 2012 following the success of “All Gold Everything”, Trinidad James is no longer member of the family. Taking to twitter Friday night, Trinidad announced that he has been dropped from Def Jam Records. Along with that, TJ revealed that he’ll be releasing his debut album for free now, and any producer looking to get paid, better not get their hopes up. Trinidad stated “If u hear ur beat or verse on it. I hope u want dap cuz i got no money”. (So much for all that gold he had).

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".
