T-Pain has collaborated with the likes of Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Chris Brown, but it was one particular artist in Nicki Minaj which T-Pain claims dubbed him back in 2007.
Appearing on The 85 South Comedy Show, T-Pain revealed he reached out to Nicki Minaj in 2007. “I met Nicki back in 2007 and she stopped responding,” T-Pain explains. “I was like, ‘Nick, let me know what’s going on. She was like, ‘Hey, I’m an artist too and I’m working on my shit so ya know. Baby, chill.’ And I was like, ‘Oh… My heart.'”
Yes that was all that happened, but as T-Pain noted, perhaps he was in love with Nicki. The Shade Room shared the video clip on their Instagram account where Nicki Minaj commented and tagging T-Pain with an apology.
“I don’t remember this AT ALL but it DEF sound like smthn I would say 🥴😂 omg what was I thinking? He was already a rlly big artist. I was still underground. Chileeeeee I used to b buggin yo 😭 I was under so much pressure to deliver 😫 my bad babe, all love. I have nthn but respect for your talent. 🎀♥️ and thank you & Kanye for clearing “Go Hard” for Beam Me Up Scotty last month. 🙏 listening to you over & over on that record taught me SM about harmonies & background vocals. Your vocals on that song alone are GOATED FOR LIFE. I listened to every single detail. @tpain.”
