T-Pain was originally set to battle Scott Storch yesterday, but at the last minute, he was swapped out and replaced with Mannie Fresh. “I was ready,” T-Pain tweeted after he was removed from the battle with Storch. “Dub or L I stand behind my shit. Tim and Swizz hit me and said they were lookin at comments and came to the fact that producer vs songwriter just doesn’t make sense. I didn’t back out lol I was ready to have fun on live shit. It’s comin tho.”
For this battle, each of them will get to play 20 hits each. “This time, it’s for real,” T-Pain stated on Instagram about the battle with Lil Jon.
T-Pain has produced and written many hits for artists like Ciara and Chris Brown. Lil Jon has been dubbed the “King of Crunk” and has produced hits for Ciara and Usher.
