On March 19, groundbreaking rapper, singer, and producer T-Pain stopped by Genius for the latest installment of Genius Level, our live conversation series with icons of the music business, including influential artists, songwriters, producers, and executives. During the conversation with Genius' Head of Artist Relations Rob Markman, T-Pain participated in a retrospective spanning his over decade-long career.
Later on, T-Pain revealed that he didn’t get paid for some of his biggest features. “I did all of ‘em for free and all I wanted you to do was get back on my shit, that’s it. I just wanted an even swap, 'cause I was going to charge you just as much as you charge me,” he explained. “Then nothing was reciprocated, you know what I’m saying? But, even if I got somebody to even try to be on the song, they would come back and charge.”
