Quincy Jones’ viral interview with Vulture has everyone talking, and T-Pain is the latest to weigh in on the legend’s controversial comments.
In addition to outing friends Marvin Gaye, Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando as bisexual, dissing the musicianship The Beatles, Cyndi Lauper and Jimi Hendrix and sharing personal stories about Donald and Ivanka Trump, Jones also called T-Pain out for failing to pay attention to details while they recorded Jones’ 2010 album Q: Soul Bossa Nostra.
Pain responded Twitter:
“For the record I told my managers (at the time) and I told @QuincyDJones in his face ‘I don’t want to remake any your past records because I know I’m gonna fuck it up. I’ll never be able to reach the greatest MJ’ it took them hours to pump me up to even go in the booth.”
“And I still hated it when I came out the booth. Then the song came out and it was even worse than it sounded in the studio. This is legit one the reasons I don’t work with the managers I had anymore because if I said I was uncomfortable doing something they didn’t care.”
“But also to be real. It just seems like @QuincyDJones is pissed f at the whole world. I have nothing but respect for the guy so I don’t know why we didn’t hold the song or tell me exactly what he wanted when I kept taking the headphones f beggin for direction from the God.”
