Plies f/ T-Pain "Shawty" (2007) "I was fucking with him six, seven months before we ever did the record. Bumped into him a couple times in the studio in Atlanta, and he heard my name through the streets. He was like, 'You a real dude. I want to make sure I fuck with you, when my album come around we gonna get it in.' I politicked with him, and I told him, 'Man, you got the streets, you killing the block, you got the city behind you. Fuck with these bitches.' After that, we got up in Atlanta to do 'Shawty.' He cut the vocals in Florida. It sold four million ringtones. Gold album from a new artist. People didn't even know Plies. Brought him out. BAM!"
