T-Pain has been enjoying the spoils of learning about the “request” section of Instagram DMs and finally following up with his peers who want to work with him. However, while these new opportunities are amazing, Pain took to social media to share how exhausting it has been.
“I wanna start this thread off by saying I’m definitely not complaining about this but I don’t think we know what kind of pressure we put on others,” he wrote on Twitter alongside a list of artists he’s doing features for, including Ty Dolla Sign, Carnage, Murda Beatz, Kelly Rowland, and Erica Banks.
Pain clarified in the thread that this is only a list of artists who he’s agreed to work with but hasn’t had a chance to yet because of how crazy his current workload is. “I literally can’t keep up with the ppl that aren’t on this list that hit me everyday,” he said. “This is the list of features I actually HAVENT done yet that I’ve gotten since the whole ‘situation’ a while back and I’ve promised to deliver. This is just features that I actually WANT to do. I’ve talked to these ppl personally and accepted the job.”
He explained that the list is also in order of priority. “If you ask me for a feature at this point, just know that this list is in the order that the requests were received so there’s no way to get to the top of the list.”
As it stands, there are 18 features that Pain has to work through. He also described all of the other ventures he has responsibilities for, like his Nappy Boy Radio podcast, Nappy Boy Gaming, and developing his team of artists, not to mention working on his own music.
Pain revealed that not making time for himself has been one of the main reasons why he pushed his solo album back several times. “I’ve pushed my own album back 3 times because I’m making sure everybody else is good. I’m gettin to it I swear.”
T-Pain closed the thread by urging everyone to take time for themselves and that it’s been taking him so long to finish the features because he actually cares about them.
