Trinidad James’ 567 Agency Represents Artist Kaliii at the 2024 Rolling Loud Festival in California

Women Artists On the Come Up

Since the 90s, the female rap scene has been a powerful force but dominated by only a few names throughout the years. Apps like TikTok have been a catalyst for the fame of multiple artists and carrying female rappers to the next level of their careers.

567 Agency, owned by artist Trinidad James, is a creative agency that works and supports women artists in their exploration of their creativity and individuality through their art. The agency has represented artists Flo Mili, Sexxy Red, and Kaliii. 

Trinidad James Starting His Own Agency

365 Agency was started by rapper and songwriter Trinidad James, who was born Nicholaus Joseph Williams. 

Williams said each number in his agency’s name has significance: 5 means change, 6 means love, and 7 means completion. The name is a reference to the work that comes in between the beginning of an idea and achieving success.

“It’s just to remind women that people don’t need to tell women what they do, just kinda show women who they are,” said Williams. 

Williams was at the Rolling Loud Festival 2024 in California with his agency 567 to represent Kaliii. His agency is a way for the former rapper to be more involved in the growth and development of the industry.

“Real business should be able to scale. You can’t scale unless you get a bigger piece of the pie. I wanted a bigger piece of the pie.” said Williams.

Checking in with Kaliii

Kaliii is no stranger to the Rolling Loud Stage and she returned this year in California with vibrant energy.

“Rolling loud is always fun, everyone is doing their thing, showing their crafts, turning up,” said Kaliii.

She said performing has become like muscle memory and it’s something that she truly enjoys. For her, the best part is seeing her family and friends come out to have a good time.

Kaliii is one of the many women rappers to blow up through TikTok when her song, “Do A Bitch” went viral in 2020. While speaking with the Carvd N Stone Team, Kaliii left a message for the woman looking to achieve their goals.

“Just stay you. Stay authentic to yourself. It’s your dream [and] nobody else’s,” said Kaliii.
