When will T-Pain get the respect he deserves? 😩
Talking to Twitch viewers, T-Pain recently recalled a time when Travis Scott and his friends fell asleep on him during a studio session. As Pain tells it in this clip, he was inspired to work on music after hearing a few songs off Astroworld prior to its release.
But when he turned around from his computer to get Travis' thoughts on his production, he was shocked to see everyone "knocked the f**k out." Travis was even sleeping standing up.
"I started going into how I do production. The whole time I’m looking at my computer. ... Then I turned around. Everybody in the room f*****g asleep. Knocked the f**k out," he said, adding, "Bro, I was only talking for like three or four minutes."
Leading up to this moment, T-Pain was apparently ghosted by Travis several other times while paying "$540 a day" for specially requested speakers. To La Flame's credit, he's one of the biggest artists in the world, so his schedule is probably extra crazy.
Show some love, y'all!
Adding to T-Pain's rapper horror stories, one Twitter user dug up an interview with DJ Vlad that was later shared in The New Yorker in which Pain talked about how Kanye West made a song about how dumb all of his ideas were while recording 808s and Heartbreaks.
He claimed Future's brother was disrespectful as well when he told him that he wanted to collaborate with the Atlanta artist.
Meanwhile, T-Pain, being the down to earth dude that he is, claimed he and Travis are "cool" in a tweet. "It ain’t that serious 😂," he wrote. "S**t happens all the time."
Still, scores of fans took to social media to give T-Pain his flowers, recognizing his talent and creative contributions to hip-hop.
"I don’t like how new artists are playing with T-Pain like that," wrote one person. "Like he didn’t have 2006-2009 on lock, like he wasn’t responsible for THE cultural reset of rhyming mansion with Wiscansin. Put some respect on his name now." Facts!
