When Jay-Z released “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)” on last year’s Blueprint 3, T-Pain was offended. Although he didn’t immediately react in a negative way, he later insulted Jay-Z during a show in Las Vegas. Recently, T-Pain spoke on the subject and noted that the feud has been over since the two spoke earlier this year.
“We talked at the Grammys,” he recently told MTV. “It was a pretty big thing. Word for word, he said, ‘That’s fucked up the way you took that song.’ I’m a [crazy] nigga, so we gonna take the song like that. That’s how we take songs. He was like, ‘I didn’t mean nothing by that.’ I was like, ‘I already put out my apology song [“More Careful”]. So there you go. My bad. I apologize. Apologize for taking the song like that.’ We shook hands, did the little chest bump. That was the end of that.”
Moving away from this feud, T-Pain is also preparing the release of his forthcoming album titled Revolver. Unlike his last effort, this disc will not contain many guest appearances.
“I had to slow down on guest appearances, because a lot of people were saying that Thr33 Ringz was only as good as it was because it had a lot of people on there. I just wanted to prove some people wrong. I wanted to test myself to see if that was the case. It was so many people on the last album, it should have been a DJ Khaled album.”
