In response to a recent interview by Jay-Z, singer T-Pain has clarified the reasons for the recent disparaging words about the mogul at a Las Vegas show.
Last week, rapper Fabolous via Twitter and a video displayed T-Pain saying f**k Jay-Z and chastising the emcee as old and out of touch with todays music scene.
In an interview on Ed Lovers Morning Show, T-Pain explained his ire came from what he perceived as Jay-Zs disrespect to him earlier this summer at NYs Summer Jam.
This isnt the first time Ive said it, T-Pain stated. I called Jay and said yo, can you come out during my set at the stadium and do the DOA song? It would be a big look for me and you. I embraced the song at the time he said he was triple-booked in Switzerland. Im ready to go on after a Jeezy set and they said hold on because Jay-Z is about to come out. I said well Jay-Zs in Switzerland, and theyre like no hes not hes right there. I look and then theres Jay-Z. Thats one thing.
While some may perceive the issue is trivial, T-Pain argues the situation was exacerbated once the pair got on stage together for D.O.A.
Then the line in the song where he says I dont need nobody smiling at this he pointed at me, T-Pain revealed. And at the end of the song when I tried to shake his hand he said good riddance.
In related news, Fabolous called into the Angie Martinez Show yesterday (September 9) and revealed that he and T-Pain had squashed their beef, which began after the f**k Jay-Z comments.
Fabolous tweeted a number of disparaging remarks aimed at T-Pain, who is a featured producer on Fabs new album Losos Way.
Fabolous made comments about T-Pain after hearing disparaging remarks about Jay-Z during T-Pains set at a club in Las Vegas last week.
He also mistakenly responded to a phony Twitter account that read f**k Jay-Z and f**k Fabolous.
He was doing his set and then in between each song, he just would go in on Jay. And I was like I cant be from Brooklyn and just listen to this, I just felt like I had to say something
He text me and said to call him and I called him. I apologized really because I kinda jumped out the window a little bit and didnt check into it before I knew what I was doing, so I apologized for that. And he explaining the whole thing with Jay, how he felt like Jay was coming at him a little bit.
