T-Pain Wants to Give His Album Away for Free

Published February 9, 2011

T-Pain is fed up and he's not going to take it anymore. Instead, he wants to try his hand at giving—the gift being his entire album. On Twitter. For free.

The Auto-Tune crooner is upset over the performance of his recent singles and thinks people don't respect music anymore. Now he feels like he might as well just give his music away for free.

"Since nobody wants to respect this form of art that you all say we 'love' so much, I'm just gonna go ahead and start leakin' the album myself tonight," T-Pain tweeted last night.

T-Pain took to Twitlonger to rant against "hackers and leakers," whom he thanked for showing interest in his music but criticized for exploiting what he sees as goodwill on his part.

"I've been taken advantage of when I'm just tryin' to let people know what's goin' on with my music, and then you audio hijack it for your own amusement," he wrote. "I would have been happier if you would have just waited to get a better-quality version of the song, but it's cool, it's pretty much my fault anyways."

Then he had some colorful words:

"For the most part y'all can suck a fart out of a homeless man's ass."

T-Pain reportedly leaked two songs from the album immediately following the rant, but they have since been deleted. His long-delayed album RevolveR still does not have a release date. You can hear his recent collaboration with Chris Brown, "Bes Luv Song," here.
