T-Pain: Future's Brother Told Me Future Would Never Work With Me (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Auto-tune did not die after Jay Z’s 2009 “D.O.A.” song, it multiplied and produced one of the most successful R&B artists in recent memory, Future. T-Pain, one of the originators in the reinsertion of Auto Tune into mainstream Hip Hop and R&B has publicly taken issue with Future’s use of Auto Tune and finally revealed where his gripe with him started.

During an interview with VladTV, T-Pain says last year he invited Future’s brother to  the VIP section of his turkey drive at Pin Ups strip club in Decatur, Georgia. After praising Future, Pain says he inquired about a potential collaboration when he was met with a disheartening response from Future’s brother:

 So Future brother come in there… we chilled, we drank, everybody singin’ songs… I’m about to leave, and I go to Future’s brother, and I say, ‘Yo, bro. I need to work with your brother. We got to work together. This shit has got to happen.’ This nigga turns to me and says, ‘N*gga, my brother would never work with you. F*ck you and everything you stand for.’ I turned around…because my wife was there with me, so I didn’t want to get into no squabble… my wife was there. That would’ve just put her in a weird situation.”

This is not the first time T-Pain has had a disagreement with a member of Future’s camp. T-Pain called Future the “new T-Pain” on his personal instagram account earlier this year and claimed Future did not know how to use Auto Tune correctly in an interview earlier this year. Rocko responded to Pain’s statements in an interview with InFlexWeTrust earlier this year and surprisingly admits to being a T-Pain fan:

I don’t know what was going on with T-Pain cause I was actually a fan of T-Pain until he said that about my brother. I just feel like he was out of line because T-Pain came in the game and he milked the game and killed the game. He made his money in the game. I’m pretty sure he still making good money. He still probably getting good residuals and still probably touring and getting good money. So I don’t understand.

Check out T-Pain’s full explanation of the origins of his beef with Future below:

  • Black Jay

    I don’t know. T-Pain seems kinda sensitive to me. He got sensitive with Jay-Z about Jigga’s D.O.A. Now he’s hating on Future. To be honest, both of these dudes suck. Auto-tune is a gimmick. But to hate on another cat because of the same computer program? That’s weak. That’s like 9th Wonder getting mad at the world for using his computer program. It’s not the program, it’s the man using it. Step up your game T-Pain.

    • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      T-Pain got classics ( I aint even a fan) and Future got Sh*t and a bunch of hoeee azz baby mommas including but not limited to Cici (I aint even a fan). QUEENS!

  • i’mreloaded!

    Can u imagine Future and T-Pain arguing in autotune? No thank u

  • Heart of a Slave, Blood of a k

    Not a fan of Rocko, T Pain or future. With that being said, kudos to Rocko for being direct about things. Too many times, people are face to face and they say “Sure, lets work together buddy”. Then during a magazine interview or on twitter they start making tough guy statements. I respect that he told the guy to his face, no we’re good and you can keep it moving. No fight, just move foward and know where you stand.

  • MrNoName2K

    ok saying his bro wouldnt work with him is one thing cuz dude gonna make hismoney regardless but then a nigga got personal talkin bout “”F*ck you and everything you stand for”..my reply…Ciroc bottle across the grill right there..

    • I think Ida had to piece bruh ass up too….

      • iamwhoiam

        Na bro, he said he was with his lady. (Switch to Kevin Hart stand -up)…..”YOUU AAIN’T GON’ DOO SHIT!” Lol

      • Truth Powell

        You have to be careful tho cuz those same guys running their lip are the same ones that go and call the cops after you hit em.

    • I damn sure definitely ain’t finna let no cat try and stunt on me in front of my main thang either…she just gon have to understand after I break my foot off in bruh a$$.

  • To be honest I was dry hating on t pain when he first came out but I listened and liked more than a few of his songs. He murked a couple rap songs on them hooks. I like Rocko too but I didn’t know his lil wack ass brother was Future. Can’t even begin to understand why Future is on. Not hating on future but I just can’t stand to hear his music…prolly cuz I can’t understand what bruh saying at all. Not mad at none of these black brothers getting that bread tho. But yea Future gotta be worse than Birdman on these songs IMO. Least you know what stunna gon say…Future on the other hand..maybe you gotta play his ish backwards to get a real message. Believe me y’all I tried his mixtapes and all but just can’t rock wit bruh.

    • I’m with you, I used to all out hate on Pain for the longest…til I heard that Karaoke joint and peeped how fukkin HARD that nigga went on that shit (then his role in Lottery Ticket for the bonus, fam was a fool and a HALF in that shit)…wouldn’t say it made me a fan but it gave me a newfound respect for him, I fukks with Pain. Future and his brother on the other hand…I ain’t gonna be able to do it…

      • Da Ledgendary

        Most people either forgot or just don’t know that T-Pain was a rapper first. He just tried the Auto-tune shit and blew up. His first CD was called Rapper Turned Sanga or something like that.

      • Yeah I forget the name of the group he was spittin with but I knew that too.

    • Da Ledgendary

      That’s a good and honest opinion. I feel the same way. I gave Future a shot in my speakers and just couldn’t take it. I’ll leave that to the young’n. But some dumb niglet will call you a hater for not liking Future’s music. And by the way, Rocko is not who T-Pain was talking about. Rocko is not T-Pain’s brother. think T-Pain would have addressed Rocko by his name in that interview if that is who he was talking about.

    • Immortal

      I never hated on Pain, because I took him for what he was worth at the time. I also heard dude sing on utube and he can actually sign without auto tune. But my boy messed up tho when he went up against Chocolate Drop, but killed it on his remix for “every girl”. But Future? The only reason folks know of him is through his bro, and the fact that he put jump off non singing a$$ Ciara back on then wifed her. Didn’t he learn from Dream? Pain will still get play with Bartender years later. Where will future be when he’s been around as long as Pain has?

  • TimeWillTellu1

    Ya’ll can auto-tune around a fire burning out of a barrel on a snowy day for all I care! I can picture these two auto-toning everything they do from a normal conversation to interviews in auto-tone. RIP Roger Troutman.. Someone give them a damn harmonica …Now please GTFOH

  • Sean Power

    hopeful by the end 2014 they will both end like young juc and young mc

  • chippc

    Who hands out turkeys like that? Bitch you want a turkey!??

  • dbfromdc



    I would of slapped sparks out that nigga mouf

  • RapItUp

    Guys, I gotta shed some light, because Keith Nelson Jr. fabricated this article and it does not provide the full proof we are looking for before casting these judgments on Future or his “brother”. The “brother” in mention is NOT Rocko. I watched this interview on another site, and T-Pain knows what Rocko looks like, etc. He was not sure who Future’s “brother” was that was at the strip club. Way to stir up the pot Keith.

    • iamwhoiam

      That’s what the media does best…

  • Obi Won

    Honestly, I don’t think we appreciated T-Pain for real until Future came out. T-Pain did make pretty good music, for the club, car, etc… Future music is trash.
    That Love & Affection was cool though

    • Controversy Sells

      The song with kelly and magic wit it also. . . Other than that he a bum in the mic.

      I’m still tryna figure out how he blew up off a feature. “Yc- racks”

  • Severe Thebeneficent

    smh nigga said he had a TURKEY DRIVE at a STRIP CLUB…PINUPS at that lol…what was the COMMUNITY CENTER all booked up or something? wow…so you make it rain on bullet wound having bucket head bitches THEN give them free turkeys that they probably dont know how to cook anyway…incredible…and if you defend this kinda backwards way of thinking you too need your face kicked in…

    • scullyson


    • iamwhoiam

      Maybe they were raising money FOR the turkey drive, that’s where tha ballas be at….please don’t kick my face in, ijs! Lol

    • Lamar Star


    • Big Dog

      Shit niggas be needing them turkeys after giving away all their Thanksgiving money on bitches and liquor.

  • iamwhoiam

    If I was T-Pain I wouldn’t want to do a song with Future, and that’s tha
    “TRUUUUUUU-OOHOOHOOH-TH” I’m just bein honest. Lol

  • Exactly where/how are y’all getting it confused that Rocko is the one that was in the club that night? Rocko is being brought up because he publicly responded to T-Pain’s comments, not because T-Pain is saying it was Rocko claiming to be Future’s brother
