Sometimes when an artist has a hit song, people come hopping out of the woodwork and claim they're owed money.

That's basically why T-Pain doesn't make much from his 2007 hit "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')," a topic that he discussed in a recent interview.


 

"Y'all looked up the publishing on 'Buy U A Drank?' Like, publishing wise, I probably make no money," he said. "So, all those things that I said in 'Buy U A Drank,' that was from other songs. When 'Buy U A Drank' blew up, all them other people from all them other songs said they was owed sh*t from my song because I said their name."

"I'm like, 'what the f*ck' ... I was like paying homage and sh*t," added Pain. "So, like 'Money In The Bank,' I got Scrappy and his writers. They came for that. On 'Snap Your Fingers, Do Your Step,’ Lil Jon and E-40? Everybody on that song came for me."

Some might not be surprised by Pain's admission since he once said that playing video games makes him more money than his music career.
