T-Pain was recently interviewed by vladtv. During the interview, T-Pain brought up a time when Kanye West made a song about him, essentially dissing him and his ideas. He went on to describe the situation and how the unreleased song came about.
“He came up with this song for me, and it wasn’t a good song,” T-Pain says during the vladtv.com interview. “It was basically describing how wack my ideas was that I was coming up with. And he made everybody in the studio join in with him to sing like, ‘T-Pain’s shit is weak.’ “
T-Pain went on to talk about similarities between his album “Rappa Ternt Sanga” and Kanye West’s “808s & Heartbreak”
“I respect that shit, but it’s like the praise that he got from it was like, ‘Oh my God, this is so creative. This is the new shit. This is the shit,’” T-Pain said. “And I’m like, ‘Well, what happened in 2005 when I dropped Rappa Ternt Sanga and it was the same album. That’s kind of weird.’ You know what I’m saying. It just felt like I was unappreciated and anything like that. Any originator of anything is gonna be the lesser-known because it’s the newest thing and that’s just not—it’s not right, but that’s just how shit goes.”
