Pranked: Trinidad James Gets Served By Otis From Martin [Video]

Rucuss staffJanuary 15, 2013

Rapper Trinidad James burst onto the scene with his hit song All Gold Everything.

As soon as he released the video, many compared his look to Jerome Rome, who is a character from the 1990s hit show Martin. Shortly after, there were rumors that James was being sued by the creators of Martin on December 20.

The show’s creator “Gerald Levin” was supposedly filing a $5 million lawsuit against James for infringing the show’s pimp-tastic character Jerome. One problem, the shows creators are Martin Lawrence, John Bowman and Topper Carew.

But that didn’t stop Levin for fueling the fire of the rumor.

“Gold chains, gold rings, and rotten teeth, that’s Jerome!!” Levin was quoted saying. “…Martin created that.”

James, who signed a $2 million deal with Def Jam, does bear some hilarious uncanny similarities to Jerome. Radio station Hot 107.9 decided to have a little fun with James about the alleged suit. The station hired a man to play Otis, who is another Martin character to serve James papers.

The prank worked, James didn’t know what to do at the beginning of the joke. Watch the prank below.
