T-Pain Speaks On How Money Changes People & Being Married

“My whole family, man, they see what they see and they automatically ask for stuff,” he continues. “It ain’t a problem except when they ask for shit they don’t need. I bought my mom a house and a Porsche truck. I bought my sister a Buick truck. I gave my dad $20,000. I didn’t even feel that one. But he asked for more, like, two days later. It got to the point where he straight up said, ‘Gimme $250,000 and you don’t have to worry about me no more.’ Like, what the fuck? That’s a payoff for your dad. God damn.”

On Being Married:
He got married at 18 (he proposed in a Bennigan’s), and he has two children with his wife, Amber: daughter Lyriq, 4, and son Muzyq, 1. T-Pain paints a lively picture of domestic bliss: “My wife and I download pornos together,” he says. “She goes with me to strip clubs. She’ll be tipping bitches and everything.” More sweetly: “I love reading my daughter to sleep—she loves this one book called Ducks in Muck.” And, combining the smutty and the sweet: “I’ll be at a club, just surrounded by ho’s, and I’ll literally call my wife, like, ‘I’m so, so happy I married you.’
