''People Who Die From Drugs Are Just Weak-Minded''
After A-Trak mentioned him in a Huffington Post piece about drug culture in rap music, Trinidad James offered his own perspective on drugs, hip-hop and influence. Speaking to XXL, the rapper who became known for his "popped a molly, I'm sweatin'!" catchphrase said that drug abuse is the result of a weak mind.
"Iâ€™m my own man, and I have my own reasons for why I do anything," James said. "But I respect where [A-Trak is] coming from, because when someone like him starts that conversation, itâ€™s going to influence somebody. I have a strong mind, but people are going to read his thoughts, and hopefully his message reaches a kid or an adult who doesnâ€™t have a strong mind so they wonâ€™t even waste their time with drugs because if they do theyâ€™ll end up being an addict and dying. I feel like people who die from drugs are just weak-minded.""If you have three people talking about the subject, you have one person whoâ€™s never done drugs, period; you have one person who does drugs currently; and you have one person whoâ€™s done drugs but doesnâ€™t do it anymore," he says. "Every one of those peopleâ€™s opinions isnâ€™t necessarily wrong, itâ€™s just their outlook on it. To say that theyâ€™re wrong? Not necessarily. Because at the end of the day, doing drugs is not right. Itâ€™s not right. Doing drugs is not right."
"I watch the energy that I put out in the world," he says. "I try to put a positive energy out in the world, but my music is still real and it has its ratchet moments. But at the end of the day, itâ€™s about how you take it. You canâ€™t blame Trinidad for nothing. Nothing."
