American Singer, T-pain has been speaking up about his past, especially as regards his career and recently, he spoke about a conversation Usher had with him.
In a newly released clip from Netflix’s This Is Pop, T-Pain shared a conversation he had with Usher, who addressed him on a flight in 2013 with claims that he “f*cked up music.”
The singer and rapper reveal that he fell into a depression after fellow musician Usher told him.
T-Pain explained that he was sound asleep on the way to the BET Awards when he was awakened by a flight attendant who informed him that Usher wanted to meet with him.
In the video, he recalls:
“Usher was my friend. I really respect Usher. And he said, ‘I’m gonna tell you something, man. You kinda f*cked up music
T-Pain, whose real name is Faheem Rasheed Najm, revealed that what began as polite talk turned into Usher accusing him of being to blame for the mess of the music industry.
“I didn’t understand. Usher was my friend. He was like, ‘You really, like, fucked up music for real singers.
Literally, at that point, I couldn’t listen. Is he right? Did I fuck up music? And that is the very moment — and I don’t think I realized this for a long time. That’s the very moment that started a four-year depression for me.”
The response to this by Pain’s fans was quick. Some of them remarked that it seemed odd that Usher would make such a comment to T-Pain only to return with his auto-tune-heavy hit single, “OMG.”
Meanwhile, the public is demanding that Usher issues an apology to T-Pain and he’s being dragged until it happens
