T-Pain appears to be in trouble as a result of a Twitch chat with DJ Akademiks. T-Pain recently reconnected with Akademiks for a casual discussion about all things pop culture. During the discussion, T-Pain shared a viewpoint about Tupac Shakur that surprised listeners. Pain thinks that Pac would not have attained the same level of acclaim if he had flourished in the age of social media or in the contemporary Hip Hop culture.
“Pac would’ve gotten killed sooner and he would’ve gotten his ass ate the f*ck up lyrically,” said T-Pain. “Lyricism-wise, Pac would’ve got ridiculously murdered. Bro, Pac was a crazy lyricist in our time because ain’t nobody else have no platform… If the platforms would’ve been what they are now, Pac would’ve been ate the f*ck up […] I’m just saying what we look at as Pac’s greatest lyrics, right, is peanuts to what we hear today.”
T-Pain received immediate outrage after some of his remarks about Shakur went viral, and he even received criticism from his colleagues. Boosie Badazz was one of those who vehemently disagreed with Pain’s assessment of the late Rap icon, and he responded on Twitter.
