This month's issue of NYLON Guys features Trinidad-born, Atlanta-based rapper Nicolas Williams aka Trinidad James. We started following this dude after we saw him play CMJ last year and his fast rise built on hard work has just landed him a spot on the Def Jam roster. Our correspondent met up with James on tour to discuss how a night in jail led to a Youtube video with almost 10 million views--which led to non-stop touring. Check out the whole story on page 94 of this month's issue of NYLON Guys.
