In May 2011, T-Pain released the 30-song mixtape prEVOLVEr. In the “We Will Rock You”-sampling track “Big Man,” T-Pain raps alongside a certain Tity Boi — the same College Park, Ga., rapper who now answers to 2 Chainz. T-Pain kept up with Tha Bizness; beat, while Tity Boi barely could. They sounded nothing alike.
Why revel in the past? Well, in the first single off his forthcoming mixtape Stoic, T-Pain seems to be channeling his inner 2 Chainz, dropping one succinct punchline after another — and cracking poop jokes in the process. While 2 Chainz nodded to Pampers in his Def Jam debut Based on a T.R.U. Story, T-Pain shouts out to laxatives on “Don’t You Quit.” Hear it below.
Within the first minute of “Don’t You Quit,” T-Pain makes clear that he’s rapping about X-rated recreation — that, and documenting it on Facebook and Instagram. However, in an interview with Yahoo! Music, T-Pain insisted that the song was meant to inspire.
“You know me, I’m just all into motivation,” he said. “That comes in all kinds of forms. So we just trying to venture out and make sure everybody get their piece of all of my motivation because I got a lot to give out. It’s got to be an anthem.”
One thing’s for sure: given his track record, 2 Chainz would likely approve, if not ask to jump in on the remix.
