T-Pain has had a lot of quotables throughout his career, but most recently, he was asked to offer some help by a high schooler for his senior quote… and obliged.

Back in mid-December 2016, a high school kid named Gabriel Silvan asked the rapper/singer for a quote (via Twitter). He replied with: “People don’t think it be like it be, but it do.”


Well, six months later, Gabriel returned to Twitter with a shot of his yearbook photo. Under his photo and name was the same quote T-Pain gave him and credited the rapper/singer, though the quote is often attributed to former Major League Baseball player Oscar Gamble.

Check it out below:


T-Pain was surprised and amused by the news, and shared it with his followers, writing:” Man. This. This is the kind of sh*t I live for. you did it bro. Killed it. Good job man… slow clap*.”

Silvan replied: “I F*CKING LOVE YOU DUDE”
