T-Pain Calls Aaliyah Over-hyped Due To Her Early Death
T-Pain better get ready for the backlash. After debuting new track “Girlfriend,” featuring vocals from Aaliyah at a listening session for his new DJ Drama hosted mixtape The Iron Way, T-Pain addressed fans who feel that T-Pain and his autotune aren’t “worthy” of being on a record with the fallen R&B star…
“People tend to–I don’t know man– I’m not trying to discredit Aaliyah in any kind of way. But you know how sometimes when people die–yeah. You know how somebody’s an a**hole their whole life, but when you go to their funeral it’s like ‘This guy was the greatest man that ever walked…’ No, I’m just sayin’! No, I’m not saying Aaliyah. But it’s like because she passed, nobody is deserving of being next to her. Nobody’s good enough. Nobody is good enough because she passed. If she was still alive, then everybody would’ve been like, ‘Oh! She’s tryna be Beyoncé!’ If she were still alive right now. But now that she’s passed, it’s like ‘Nobody could be her! Nobody could be her!’ That’s just how I feel.”
What do you think? Does he have a point?
