During an episode of Drink Champs, T-Pain opens up about previous “beef” with Future.

T-Pain makes it clear that the situation was completely blown out of proportion. “My problem with Future was never a problem,” explains T-Pain. “It was Khaled’s problem. When they put out ‘I Woke Up In A New Bugatti,’ they had posted my Bugatti in their shit. You know what it was like? When your homeboy got a Tinder date in the apartment, and your homeboy got on your shirt that you use for Tinder Dates.”

“If you going on a date, and you ask your homeboy if you can borrow his shirt,” Pain continuous, “And your homeboy shows up to the date and says ‘nice shirt, looks real fuckin’ familiar.’ That’s how the whole Future beef started. Everybody thinks it was this big thing, that we fought or something. But it was literally — [he] sat in my Bugatti. In my Bugatti. And then you said it was yours. And I told people it wasn’t yours, and that was the end of it.”

“He didn’t get mad,” laughs Pain. “Future never gets mad…He ignored the whole shit.” T-Pain explains.

He was also asked about a VERZUZ battle between he and Future. “To the public, Future would win,” admits Pain. “We don’t have the same records,” he continues. “What’s the feel-good records — what would Future play after ‘Bartender?’ What would he play after ‘I’m Sprung?’ Cause we gotta match records. When you play records, you gotta match records. If I play ‘If I Could Change The World’ with me, Diddy, Mary J. Blige, and Akon, what’s Future going to play after that? We in two different categories.”
