T-Pain is striking back at his critics after receiving backlash for remaking Michael Jackson’s 1983 classic “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)” for Quincy Jones’ tribute album Q: Soul Bossa Nostra. Teddy P. sends a message to the haters and also reveals that he recorded the Auto-Tune-heavy song at the request of the legendary producer and King of Pop himself. Read his rebuttal below.
“For all the ppl that hate mr for ruining pyt just stop listening to my shit. But if Quincy jones tell you he want you to do something, no matter how much shot you know ur gonna get from the dumb asses in the world, you god damn do it. The fucked up thing is everybody being so kind to mj after he’s gone, but how can you wish a man to rest in peace when you never gave him peace in a life time? I had the pleasure of meeting MJ and when I left his house I got a call from his lawyer telling mr that MJ wanted me to remake that song. So everybody that’s being overly disrespectful, you don’t have to like me at all, but you also can keep that bullshit to yourself. Like I said I’m making it my job to stay positive on twitter but this is why the image of my ppl is so fucked up cuz we all are to envious and jealous of each other to get passed anything. In conclusion, if you don’t like what I do then stop listening to it, if somebody tells you that my shit is wak, why would you go and try to find it? Just stay off my timeline and my dick and get YO shit together, obviously I’m str8 yasimelike”
