Rocko Says T-Pain

Rocko voices his opinion on T-Pain's Future comments, says they were "disrespectful" and won't be tolerated.

During an interview with Vlad TV, Atlanta rapper Rocko continued to come to the defense of fellow artist Future who was called out by T-Pain on several occasions earlier in the year due to his use of auto-tune. T-Pain referred to Future as “the new T-Pain” in the caption of an Instagram picture that was later deleted and also stated that Future is unable to properly use auto-tune.

Now Rocko, who previously proclaimed “F*ck T-Pain” via Twitter, is calling T-Pain’s various comments “disrespectful” and “out of line.”

“I feel like T-Pain was out of line,” Rocko revealed in a video posted on InFlexWeTrust.com. “You know what I’m saying? I don’t know what was going on with T-Pain cause I was actually a fan of T-Pain until he said that about my brother. I just feel like he was out of line because T-Pain came in the game and he milked the game and killed the game. He made his money in the game. I’m pretty sure he still making good money. He still probably getting good residuals and still probably touring and getting good money. So I don’t understand.”

Rocko later stated that T-Pain may actually be calling out an artist who may have looked up to him at some point in his career.

“How do you know that Future don’t look up to you,” Rocko asked. “Not saying that he do. I’m just saying though, you don’t know that. So at the end of the day I just felt like it was a slap in the face. It was disrespectful. And disrespect, that’s one thing we ain’t gon’ tolerate.”

    t-pain should be able to say whatever he feels. those niggas had to borrow his bugatti to film the video for their song called bugatti but none of them can actually afford one (ace hood, rick ross, future)

  • YEBO
    FUCK IT, T-PAIN JUST TRIED TO GIVE WORD OF ADVICE TO FUTURE. HE ADMITS HE WRITE GREAT SONGS BUT IS UNABLE TO SET AUTOTUNE CORRECTLY. THAT AIN'T NO DISRESPECT. FUTURE IS A GREAT SINGER BUT T-PAIN WILL BE FOREVER THE BEST WHO EVER DID IT WHEN IT COMES TO AUTOTUNE. AND AS A RAPPER, T-PAIN IS MUCH BETTER THAN FUTURE TOO. ROCKO IS JUST TRYING TO GET SOME ATTENTION BECAUSE NOBODY CARES ABOUT HIM RIGHT NOW. THAT'S SAD BECAUSE ROCKO IS ONE OF THE BEST RAPPERS OF ALL TIME.

    Rocko kissin' Future's dick is what it sounds like. T-pain and Future are some auto tune faggots but t-pain sounds better on it. Pain probably mad cuz Future blew up on a style that is similar. It's sad cuz Future can't sing. And why is Rocko gettin' sensitive on a comment that ain't got shit to do with him? Rappers today got feelings n shit.
    • grip
      Future is signed to Rocko's label and Epic......hence his interest. I'm surprised all of you hip hop experts don't know that, do your homework and get back to back pack rap...........

    This world is full of hypocrites. An eye for an eye. Rocko is busy stating that T-Pain is being disrespectful (which he is), but yet GOES on to disrespect T-Pain rather than approach it on a more maturer stance. I don't get it. Calling the kettle black.

    Rocko? Who in the fuck is Rocko?
  • foreal
    "Future isnt using auto tune right" - T Pain sounds pretty accurate to me. I cant sit through the Future album because of the auto tune. T Pain is just trying to give him advice on how to use auto tune. If T Pain gives auto advice, take it.

On another note its niggas on here posting Big Bang as if they me. Lol i ain't mad at you niggas following the movement. Fuck these fags who push that homo shit to the public. I ain't really mad at you nerd niggas. Just stay in yall fucking place. Big bang is back niggas.
  • trooth
    who the fuck is rocko? and the future for some reason is hot right now but he's garbage. I don't see him lasting too long. Once his gimmick is up...he's done. T pain will forever be the king of autotune. And that shit been dead for years now

    Tech N9ne asked future to get on his new song thats out, called B.I.T.C.H., future refused, like a bitch. Look who ended up on it. lol Pains actually a really dope rapper, the autotune is eeeenghh.... Still better than future any day

      "T-Pain's only like 26 or 27 years old; he can't be considered old." Well, he's like, uh, old in entertainment years.

    • Atl2Trill
      This is very disturbing.
  • HipHopOnly
    I find it hard to see how T-Pain is out of line regarding his comments about future when it's his opinion. When did those two words & meanings become the same thing? I'm sure future did look up to T-pain when he was coming up, however, future does sound like garbage when using auto-tune (vocalizer). T-Pain had the ability to sing without it so it didn't matter whether he used the vocalizer or not. Not sure why, Rocko feels his opinion matters in this little argument when nobody who cares about good hip hop cares what Rocko says!
  • asher1985
    I agree it was kind of left field for Tpain to hate. I understand his career is on the decline and he is probably a little jealous, but the comment was out of line. Although at the same time I respect his opinion, was it really needed? No...it just made him sound like a hater. Future, is the future.

      No. You're wrong.

      What? WHAT? THE FUCK makes you say that? Go light your bitch ass self on fire and jump off a fucking bridge faggot.

    SMH @ these soft, thin skinned kids coming up in the game. Of course they are t-pain fans, anyone who tried using auto-tune as a tool to improve their singing (or failed attempt at singing), is trying to emulate/piggy back on what he did. The MAJOR difference is he could actually sing without it (unlike most who came afterwards). 'Out of line'??? It's HIS opinion, it doesn't matter if you agree or not. The most telling point of the interview is when he lists the lack of an obvious motive. Yes, can you believe someone (for once), didn't critique an artist negatively for monetary gain or to create buzz through 'fake' beef? So he ACTUALLY feels that way for no other reason, then you are butchering a style he essentially created or (mastered at the very least). *Full Disclosure: I do not even like auto-tune in any form & only occasionally find t-pain/auto-tune tolerable minus some work with tech n9ne / twista.. & Redman's sparing usage. Theres less than 5 total... ever.. that come to mind anyway)

    This nigga, Rocko, is a joke, just like Future and T-Pain.
  • dentaldamboy
    T-Pain made a huge mistake by talking shit about a YMCMB / MMG affiliate. Future and Rocko are gansta in the YMCMB / MMG mold. T-Pain is going to get fucked up, just like he was freestyling to the Akon song Locked Up. No one talks shit about anyone affiliated with YMCMB or MMG and gets away with it.
    • Anonymous
      Good joke, bitch. Nobody takes YMCMB, a label filled with fake studio gangster and pop pussies, seriously. Rocko and Future are not gangsters in any way; that nigga Future was leaching off his association with Dungeon Family. Nobody's gonna do shit to T-Pain; he'll be alright.

      what is agreed? That soft 'wanna-be' rappers on the come up cant take any sort of critique. Only surrounded by 'Yes men' in their camp. Both these dudes would need a world of improvement before I could even call them pathetically terrible. Its like watching de-evolution of a culture in front of my eyes. Go back to helping the lowest form of artificial 'gangsta', get his date rape message out there.
