T-Pain told fans over the weekend that he bought the domain fucktpain.com from someone who had set up the site as an apparent gathering spot for T-Pain mockery, then flipped it into a shop for tongue-in-cheek merch options.
"Buying and wearing anything from fucktpain.com means you super fuck wit me," he explained on Sunday. "Like when your best friend calls you a trash ass bitch. You know they truly ride for you."
According to the 1UP artist, he chose to buy the site and have all the profit come to him instead of "[hurting] the person that put time into making the site" by having them take it down.
At the time of this writing, the site lands on a page showing an assortment of critical T-Pain tweets. Clicking the "Fuck It" button takes visitors to a merch shop, including a run of pieces ranging from "Auto-Tune sucks" shirts to "Fuck T-Pain" shirts.
Amid all the celebrating, however, was some tweeted speculation regarding the site's reported origin story. T-Pain responded, claiming that he simply had his team redesign the site after purchasing and noting that he doesn't know the ins and outs of selling sites. "Why do you want this to not be real lol," he said.
In addition to 1UP, last year also saw T-Pain linking with G-Eazy on "Girlfriend" and Tory Lanez on "Jerry Sprunger." This month, he appeared on 458 Rarri's "All Day."
