G.O.O.D. Music's Q-Tip is reportedly not applauding Def Jam's latest roster addition of Atlanta rapper Trinidad James and has publicly spoken out.

Rather than post a series of tweets, the rap veteran sent a single shot at Def Jam and told the company to remember the legacy its set.

"Yo @DefJamRecords brass! remember your BRAND! And what@UncleRUSH n co put out. Please! Don't be short sighted," Tip tweeted December 13th. (Q-Tip's Twitter)

I understand his point but, Q-tip signed to the same record label as 2Chains..

    The signing of 2chainz to G.O.O.D. Music was a business move to gain Trap fans not because he actually makes good music. Fuck that.

    “Lil Reese brings a gritty, authentic perspective to life on the streets ofChicago,” Def Jam Recordings president Joie Manda told AllHipHop.com in a statement today (July 2). “It’s fitting that one of our brightest A&R executives, No I.D. – a fellow Chicago native and superproducer in his own right – brought Reese to us. Artists like Reese are part of our lifeblood here at Def Jam, where we not only cherish our heritage as the definitive label in hip-hop, but seek out, sign and develop the freshest talent our culture has to offer.”

    naw, he's just a slightly more coherent Chief Keef. His big record now is "Us" and the remix with Rick Ross and Drizzle

    the other guy Lil Durk is not that bad, he's melodic
