Discouraged by the poor chart performance of his recent singles and frustrated by an overall soft market for new music, T-Pain has threatened to leak his long-delayed new album RevolveR online. “Since nobody wants to respect this form of art that you all say we ‘love’ so much, I’m just gonna go ahead and start leakin the album myself tonight,” the singer said in a rant posted on his TwitLonger account on Monday.
Later in the post, T-Pain chastised “hackers and leakers” for spreading poor digital rips of his songs, saying, “I would have been happier if you would have just waited to get a better quality version of the song but it’s cool, it’s pretty much my fault anyways, so for the most part y’all can suck a fart out of a homeless man’s ass.”
Shortly after the post, T-Pain shared two tracks from RevolveR on Twitter, but both have since been removed. T-Pain has yet to make good on the promise to leak the rest of the tracks, presumably due to the intervention of his record label, Nappy Boy/Jive.
