Kaine of the Ying Yang Twins spoke out Tuesday about accusations he was too drunk to perform at a recent show in Little Rock, Arkansas. In a video statement to TMZ, Kaine admitted he was fucked up during the Sunday night set at the Rev Room, but only because someone gave him Ciroc vodka instead of his usual drink of choice.
"I'm telling the truth," Kaine said. "You know I drink tequila, Patron Silver." Kaine said someone at the show "double hit" him instead with Ciroc, a.k.a. "the Puffy juice" with the "fruity flavors." Kaine added that his cerebral palsy makes the physical aspects of intoxication more exaggerated. "I got CP, right?" he said. "So I don't walk like everybody else."
In footage of the incident, Kaine is seen being helped off the stage. According to initial reports, the other half of the Ying Yang Twins—D-Roc—was forced to carry the bulk of the show alone. According to TMZ's sources, Kaine was removed from the stage multiple times but kept returning.
But Kaine isn't worried about annoyingly overdramatic headlines. "At least they caught me doing what I'm supposed to be doing, and what is that?" Kaine said Tuesday. "Getting fucked up while I'm getting fucked up, singing songs about me going to the club and getting fucked up."
The most recent Ying Yang Twins project is their 2013 mixtape Twurk or Die. The tape was preceded by Ass in Session that same year, ReMixTape in 2011, and Ying Yang Forever in 2009.
