T-Pain Speaks On Diddy Royalties: “This Takes Everything To A Whole Nother Level”
T-Pain’s stock has apparently risen courtesy of Diddy.
As previously reported, T-Pain, who has given Diddy permission to use Auto-Tune, will be receiving half a point on the mogul’s next album.
“I just wanna voice that, this stuff just happened,” Pain said in a youtube clip after Diddy announced he was going to use Auto-Tune on his next album. “I didn’t do it. It’s just Diddy. I just wanna announce that show prices are going up, features…This takes everything to a whole nother level. All the people spreading rumors, saying T-Pain charges $100,000 for a show…I actually do now.”
The clip starts with Diddy claiming to officially have permission to use Auto-Tune. The mogul then reveals his reasoning for awarding Pain with royalties off the album. “He didn’t negotiate with me,” Diddy said, “but as a gracious offer of gratitude, I’m giving him half a point on my album just because …Cause I got extra points too.”
“I know there’s a list of cats that he’s given permission to Ye, Wayne, Chris Brown and now myself,” he continued. “That’s not pro-rated. That’s off the point off the album just because he let me dabble in the tune. It’s called graciousness, motherfuckas.” –Michael Cohen
