The firestorm caused by Trinidad James' comments regarding the South "running' New York cannot be denied. It was a shot heard around the world and everyone had to have their say. Now, veteran Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli steps in to give his two cents on the matter.
Talib, who is on good terms with Trinidad James, agrees with his sentiment, saying "Trinidad James is right, when you listen to New York radio, New York radio does not support New York music. That's what he was speaking to."
Talib believes that Trinidad James' statement was a "misunderstanding" and says "I think he was trying to make a point and he didn't quite make it successfully."
Talib Kweli also says he said virtually the same thing and caught flake for it, too. "I got in trouble on Twitter a little while ago for saying damn near the same point and I'm from New York."
