During an interview with Vlad TV, Atlanta rapper Rocko continued to come to the defense of fellow artist Future who was called out by T-Pain on several occasions earlier in the year due to his use of auto-tune. T-Pain referred to Future as “the new T-Pain” in the caption of an Instagram picture that was later deleted and also stated that Future is unable to properly use auto-tune.
Now Rocko, who previously proclaimed “F*ck T-Pain” via Twitter, is calling T-Pain’s various comments “disrespectful” and “out of line.”
“I feel like T-Pain was out of line,” Rocko revealed in a video posted on InFlexWeTrust.com. “You know what I’m saying? 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.”
Rocko later stated that T-Pain may actually be calling out an artist who may have looked up to him at some point in his career.
“How do you know that Future don’t look up to you,” Rocko asked. “Not saying that he do. I’m just saying though, you don’t know that. So at the end of the day I just felt like it was a slap in the face. It was disrespectful. And disrespect, that’s one thing we ain’t gon’ tolerate.”
