Give T-Pain Some Damn Respect

The legendary T-Pain was all over Twitter last night, and unfortunately, it wasn’t for a good reason. The stripper-lover started trending, after sharing that he’s been ghosted by Travis Scott multiple times during studio sessions.

In the interview, T-Pain also detailed that Travis has fallen asleep on SEVERAL occasions while they’ve been working together. Travis Scott — what a shithead. And not the good kind of shithead. Show some respect for an actual icon.

And guess what, Travis? Your music and whatever “waaaave” you created wouldn’t fuckin exist if it weren’t for T-Pain popularizing auto tune. That’s right. Nobody could tolerate those high pitched vocals until Mr. Pain came along.

Along with Travis Scott’s BS, I did some digging, and it turns out other artists have been cruel to the living legend:

After reading that New Yorker piece, I was dumbfounded at how poorly some of T-Pain’s colleagues have treated him. (I realize that sounded lame).

I can understand Kanye roasting other people for having poor ideas, but man, 808s and Heartbreaks never would have happened without the Nappy Boy himself. And what’s the deal with Future’s brother cussing out T-Pain? First off, if you’re the brother of a celebrity, you have no leg or dick to stand on. You wouldn’t expect DOUG Pitt to tell Leo DiCaprio to fuck off. Second, neither Future or his lame brother have any right to come for the King. Future sucks.

There’s a lot of things that I can tolerate in this world, but T-Pain slander is not one of those things. If anyone finds a hateful tweet or article about the legend, forward to me and I will take care of it.

I’m hurt that some of these truly-lame hip hop artists would show such disrespect.

There would be no Travis Scott or Future without T-Pain. Remember that.
