Auto tune phenom T-Pain has an intimate Twitch stream exchange of an argument with host DJ Akademik. T-Pain suggested that if 2Pac survived the 1996 shooting that fans would have remembered him differently.
T-Pain while a guest on DJ Akademik’s Twitch channel got into it over the role that social would have played with 2Pac and Biggie’s beef. “Some Bullshit” T-pain said while cutting DJ Akademik off mid sentence to deliver his own taste of opinion to the fans. This opinion did not go over well with the die hards in the crowd.
DJ Akademik’s Twitch Steam:
“Pac would have gotten killed sooner [If Social Media Existed] and would have gotten his ass ate the fuck up lyrically,” in which Ak then responded with this, “Woah, woah, woah what?” T-Pain then rebutted with this statement, “Lyricism wise, Pac would have got ridiculously murdered. Bro, Pac was a crazy lyricist of his time because ain’t nobody else had no platform.”
“If the platforms would have been what they are now, Pac would’ve been ate the fuck up […] I’m just sayin Pac’s greatest lyrics right is peanuts to what we hear today.”
T-Pain and DJ Akademik’s Come To Conclusion:
The two men were able to come to one solid and forgone conclusion. 2Pac was indeed a poet if not the greatest lyricist of that time. Pain had this to say, “Pac was indeed a full fucking poet, Pac was – if – not – one of the greatest lyricists of that time. But if we would have had social media back then everyone would’ve been able to have their opinion. There would have been way more disrespectful n-ggas at the time. They would’ve been dying to be more disrespectful to Pac.”
The rant then continued with this, “If Pac was alive right now they would’ve discredited everything he said just cause he was old. Thats it, he would’ve been saying the same thing the young n-ggas but it would’ve been less credit case he’s old.”
“If 2Pac was alive right now, he would have been talking that same shit he been talking from the beginning. But somebody younger would have came up and talked shit and stepped on somebody’s grave and that would’ve been the new n-gga. And then all of a sudden, 2Pac would’ve been out of style.”
Unable to reason with this solid position T-Pain concluded with this. “The only thing you gotta do to make people get on that new is make them feel bad about being on that old thing still.”
Fans Hating On T-Pain:
Of course these comments stirred up some discontent in the stomachs of the late rap legend’s loyal fan base. On his way up to the top of the most wanted list as the enemy of the state number one, an Instagram post shared by ‘The Art Of Dialogue’ mentioned what one person had written. ‘T-Pain hella washed for the last ten years, Biggie wouldn’t even respond if that doesn’t say enough another person said; “Don’t act like lyrics don’t come better with time. From Me Against The World to Makaveli every album got better lyrically. Get your mind right.”
