While everyone was celebrating Kendrick Lamar‘s multiple wins last night at the GRAMMYs (five to be exact), Trinidad James was having his own celebration. The Atlanta-based rapper is a credited song writer for Bruno Mars‘ “Uptown Funk,” meaning he won his own GRAMMY for Best Record of the Year.

The “All Gold Everything” rapper told HipHopDX how appreciative he was to now be an award-winning artist. “Sometimes you just can’t appreciate the greatness of something until you’re in the moment. That song is a big song that’s touched this generation.”

James added he is dropping a single off his Father Figures project soon and has intentions on winning more awards in the future.


I’m dropping my first single on my label really soon. The summer is going to be wonderful man and I want to win more GRAMMY(s). That’s the goal, win more GRAMMY(s). I promise you man, once you win one GRAMMY, you want to win more. That’s what kind of mission I’m on.

Like he told us all when he first came out, “don’t believe me, just watch.” We’ll just have to see how his plans manifest when his forthcoming project, Father Figures, drops later this year.
