Trinidad James Explains the Meaning Behind “Turnt Up”


/ April 21, 2013

On “Females Welcomed,” Trinidad James raps that his side bitch is now his main bitch, cause his main ho, ain’t feeling him no mo’.

“Every dude has a side chick, like 9 out 10,” he tells VIBE. We caught up with the Def Jam rapper a few weeks back were he dished the details of his love life and explained to us what “turnt up” means to him, with his “I Luv This Shit” collaborator August Alsina in tow.

“Turning up is when the people can feel it,” says James. “You can say you’re ‘turnt up’ all you want to, but when the pepole are turnt, you’re gonna know you’re really turning up. All the other shit, it sound really cute.”
