T-Pain Discusses Why He Was Never Signed To Young Money

(AllHipHop News) At one point Auto-Tune crooner T-Pain had plans to sign with Lil Wayne’s Young Money imprint. The deal never went through, and apparently he never signed on the dotted line because of “he said, she said” comments.

“My management came to me and said Baby, Wayne, and Slim got together, they talked and they don’t want to sign you because you’re a liability… ‘You drink too much. Sometimes you make a fool of yourself. Sometimes you tell the truth about things that shouldn’t be told,'” Pain tells VladTV. “I thought we are all real n***as. I thought we were ‘real motherf**kers.’ You don’t hide nothing. That’s what we do.”

The “I’m N Luv (Wit a Stripper)” performer later spoke with Baby and Slim about their decision not to sign him. The founders of Cash Money records informed him that he was not added to the team because they did not like his managers. They claim his management lied to him about the “liability” statements.
