Despite calling it great and saying it gave him inspiration when it dropped, T-Pain’s feelings toward Jay-Z’s single, “D.O.A.”, seemed to have changed recently.
While at a recent party at the Hard Rock’s pool in Las Vegas, otherwise known as Rehab, the auto-tune king dissed Jay-Z while DJ’ing the party.
Maybe he didn’t think the track is that great after all.
“Jay-Z is 59 years old. I don’t think he has the right to say what’s good and what’s not,” Pain said at the club Rehab while on the mic. “I think if anything is dead, it should be him. … To any Jay-Z fans out in the crowd, excuse the f*** outta me. But you don’t see me saying ‘rap is dead,’ even though it is. ‘Cause apparently all the rappers are trying to do T-Pain.”
Rapper Fabolous, who was in attendance alongside Rihanna, tweeted about it, saying he wasn’t feeling it.
“Yo I’m at Rehab in Vegas … T-Pain is DJ’ing … sayin f*** Jay-Z, he old blah, blah … guess it’s backlash from ‘D.O.A.,’ ” Fabolous wrote via a Twitter update (@MyFabolousLife).
“So I’m here with Rihanna … Drinkin’ son, strawberry/daiquiri … Not feeling the T-Pain Jay-Z dissing … Brooklyn,” he continued.
Despite T-Pain dissing Jay throughout his set, the following DJ decided to give Pain a dose of Hov.
According to Fab, he immediately played “D.O.A.,” followed by hits such as “Kingdom Come,” “Run This Town,” “Heart of the City,” and “H To The Izzo.”
Back in June, Pain joined Jay-Z onstage for a performance of “D.O.A.” at Hot 97’s annual Summer Jam concert in New York, to show the pair were still cool.
Guess T-Pain wasn’t that cool with the track after all.
