Trinidad James returns with the official video for his new track called “M.M.M. (Marilyn Maryland Marilyn).”
Each “M” in the title represents someone or something important to James:
- Marilyn: Women celebrating their beauty comes from trailblazers like Marilyn Monroe.
- Maryland: In 2001-02 Juan Dixon, Steve Blake, and the Maryland team won the national championship against some of the best college teams ever, especially being in the ACC. That took heart. And I wanna do a show in Baltimore because I never got a chance to.
- Marilyn: Fearlessness is the main thing I ever think about when it comes to Marilyn Manson. I don’t agree with a lot of things about him. But when it comes to his artistry he has always been that guy.
Though “Marilyn Maryland Marilyn” is a straightforward video, it’s also a solid reminder of TJ’s humor. The rapper is seen on a deserted basketball court, where he shoots a fireball and grooms his relaxed hair, before setting his mane ablaze.
When asked to comment on the new record and video, James simply said: “Vanity, Heart, Fearlessness…..Marilyn Maryland Marilyn. #DAD.” You can check out the visual above.

ODIE – “No Signs” | 2DOPEBOYZ
Born in Toronto to Nigerian parents, ODIE is seeing a huge boost in his career thanks to the increasing popularity of his debut project Analogue. The project, released back in April stands as one of my favorites of the year, with “Bliss City,” “North Face” & “Story” standing as my favorites.
In an interview with Pigeons and Planes early this year ODIE alluded to some of the artists that influenced the music he creates now:
There’s this Fela Kuti song, “Shakara.” My dad used to play that a lot. And “Sweet Mother.” Every Mothers Day. Every Nigerian knows that song.
He’s not lying either, to receive your Nigerian certification card “Sweet Mother” is one of the tracks you just have to know.
In addition to these tracks he also pointed named Michael Jackson, Usher’s Confessions, Coldplay’s “Talk” & Dan Black & Kid Cudi’s “Symphonies!” as music that was influential to him in his youth.
Making his return seven months after the release of Analogue, ODIE dropped off “No Signs.” The song is set to appear on the LVRN-produced soundtrack of the FOX documentary They Fight which is produced by Common. The film portrays the real-life story of two young boxers, Ragahleak “Peanut” Bartee and Quincey Williams, in Washington D.C.’s Lyfe Style Boxing program.
While the film debuted on FOX last night (Nov. 11), the entire soundtrack has yet to be released, but it is set to feature original songs by 6LACK, Boogie, Octavian & more.
With all that being said, please welcome ODIE to the DopeHouse and hit play on “No Signs” and Analogue below.
