T-Pain Believes “Relevancy” Was Why he Was Left Off Post Malone’s “Rockstar”

T-Pain took to social media (again) to share his thoughts following Joey Bada$$’s claim that he ghost-wrote a version of Post Malone’s chart-topping hit “Rockstar.”

T-Pain wanted to make it clear that he was a big fan of Malone so he took to Twitter.

He also admitted Republic Records made the better choice by putting 21 Savage on the track instead of himself, explaining “relevancy” was likely the deciding factor.

I give mad props to T-Pain for being a humble enough rapper to recognize why he was left off the track (in his eyes). Not many people can put away their pride and accept when things don’t always go the way they hope. The final version of “Rockstar” was released on September 15 and spent eight weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
