T-Pain made an appearance on the ’85 South’ show with DC Young Fly, Chico Bean, and Karlous Miller and spoke about various topics. While talking to the trio, T-Pain spoke about a moment where he wasn’t able to get a Nicki Minaj feature after following up with her.
T-Pain said he met Nicki in 2007, and he was trying to work with the rising star when she stopped responding to him. He noted that his feelings were hurt but he didn’t take it as her curving him. The singer said Nicki told him, “Hey I’m an artist too, I’m over here working on my s**t.”
Now, Nicki Minaj has responded to T-Pain and explained her side of the situation while praising the singer. Nicki took to The Shade Room’s comments on Instagram and said, “I don’t remember this AT ALL but it DEF sound like smthn I would say 🥴😂 omg what was I thinking? He was already a rlly big artist. I was still underground. Chileeeeee I used to b buggin yo 😭 I was under so much pressure to deliver 😫 my bad babe, all love.”
Nicki continued, saying, “I have nthn but respect for your talent. 🎀♥️ and thank you & Kanye for clearing “Go Hard” for Beam Me Up Scotty last month. 🙏 listening to you over & over on that record taught me SM about harmonies & background vocals. Your vocals on that song alone are GOATED FOR LIFE. I listened to every single detail. @tpain.” Take a look above.
