Atlanta rapper Future has no plans of giving fellow hip-hop artist T-Pain a ring anytime soon and explained why he can’t let past disses fade to black.
Future said prior to T-Pain taking shots at him over capitalizing off auto-tune they could have made history together.
“I would’ve worked with him, easy, before he made those comments,” Future told MTV News’ Sway Calloway, “[But] when he took the jab at me I pretty much just lost all respect for him.” “Why Me?” he continued. “You could’ve talked to me off the record, or got in contact with me. Before I got in the game, he wasn’t no one I looked up to, but he was someone that I loved his songs. He had the radio on lock. I came in the game on ‘Tony Montana,’ I came in on a song like I’m Sprung,’ singing auto-tune. Then I did ‘Turn on the Lights,’ — that don’t sound like no T-Pain.” (MTV)
Despite the tensions boiling down, Future said he wanted nothing to do with Pain.
“I don’t look at him the same no more, because you’ve gotta respect the man as a man,” Future said. “You can’t say something then try to take it back. I know how you really feel. You can’t show your hand and try to hide it again. “It ain’t like I got into beef with him, I just wanna stay as far away from that situation as possible.” (MTV)
