T-Pain says he used to make simple music, but says Drake beat him with his own skills.
“I had no confidence in my music at all, I was always the simpleton, remember? I was always the N-GGA who didn’t have faith that anything could happen at all, I always wanted a girl,” he said.
“‘I’m Sprung’ – it was about how the hell I made fun of it. First real simp joint. “I’m in love with a stripper”…I never said I ever had her. I just said that I like her very much. “Bartender”…never got her anywhere. She was just a bartender. I never said we were having sex or anything. I’m just simplistic from a distance,” he continued.
Rob Markman added, “I think we need that back in music.”
Pain replied, “Simpin’? No, I think Drake has everything under control.”
In the comments, fans supported T-Pain.
One fan wrote: “But honestly that’s what makes his songs unique. Most other guys always rapped or sang that they already have the woman, do everything with her and then move on to the next one. Pain songs had a kind of longing comfort. It was cool to actually have a crush and fall in love with someone you didn’t necessarily have, but that admiration gave you either confidence or purpose. And it was okay and even fun to have those feelings because it meant you were alive or something. I don’t know that it was just refreshing.”
