In a video posted on VladTV.com, the entertainer is seen with his dancers performing his hit DJ Kahled collaboration Im So Hood.
Following the performance and an urging to buy his latest album, Thr33 Ringz, T-Pain confirmed that that he was involved in the accident.
Media sources report the producer lost four teeth in the accident, which occurred Friday (March 27) and resulted in cuts and abrasions on T-Pains face.
So check this out. Theres a lot of talk goin round about how T-Pain flipped over a damn golf cart. Thats f****n true, T-Pain admitted to concertgoers at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, California. Ladies and gentleman I bust my a**. I would show you the marks but I do not want to pull my pants down right now.
Because of the accident, T-Pain was unable to perform Friday at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California as one of the acts billed for the I Am Music tour.
In addition, the hitmaker missed a video shoot for the video to Lil Kims latest single Download.
Although reps for HP Pavilion and Lil Kim confirmed the accident, Sundays concert marked the first time T-Pain has spoken out about the incident.
