This can’t be legit. All Hip Hop and Media Take Out are reporting that the creators of the hit ’90s comedy show Martin are planning on suing recent Def Jam signee and $2 million dollar man Trinidad James for stealing the character “Jerome.”
Martin creator Gerald Levin stated, “Nobody’s that unattractive in real life. Gold chains, gold rings, and rotten teeth, that’s Jerome!! …Martin created that.”
While a number of outlets have ran with the story, reading the quote it’s hard to believe that Levin was not joking around. C’mon people. Until we hear more, let’s just chalk this one up as a joke that people took seriously.
Check some footage of Jerome below along with Trinidad James hit “All Gold Everything.”
