Thirty-three year old Florida boy and Super-producer/Songwriter T-Pain has been trending on Twitter and the reason is an interesting one. The “Masked Singer” winner has also been a trendsetting gamechanger in Hip Hop since the early 2000s when he introduced new sounds, songs, and creative melodies that influenced many music artists in the game today. He shared a live story recently about rapper Travis Scott coming to him for some heat aka new music to write to in the studio. Pain has a comical and animated personality which makes it is easy to get locked in as he speaks. He detailed that Travis Scott was seeking another banger like “Sicko Mode” which the Super-Producer admitted was a challenge considering the level of genius the production carried, but Pain agreed to accept the challenge.
“Obviously no one has that kind of sh** just ready to go! Dude! Nobody has this kind of sh** on hand. Like nobody has these kind of beats just sitting on their computer like that… Nobody just has that!”
He humbly joked with the 28 year-old AstroWorld rapper, as he also admitted that the music that Scott was requesting from him served as motivation to get in his creative bag even more. Pain said that he began going into the way he does production as he spoke aloud to Scott and his team that was sitting somewhere behind him in the studio. After a few minutes, T-Pain said he looked around the studio and the entire crew had fallen sound asleep. Everyone. Including Travis Scott who he said was actually standing up!
The story is hilarious but Twitter fans became quite defensive as T-Pain is a legend and they felt was highly disrespected, deeming him a Godfather to the sound many music artists in hip hop are running with still to this day.
What is your take on the situation? Would you take it personal? Share in comments below.
