It's safe to say that T-Pain raised many an eyebrow after admitting that he makes more from playing video games than he does from making music.

Today, he's getting a lot of attention for what he said about 2Pac Shakur while chopping it up with DJ Akademiks on Twitch.

“Pac would’ve gotten killed sooner [if social media were around] and he would’ve gotten his ass ate the f*ck up lyrically," T-Pain theorized. “Lyricism wise, Pac would’ve got ridiculously murdered. Bro, Pac was a crazy lyricist in our time because ain’t nobody else have no platform ... I’m just saying what we look at as ‘Pac’s greatest lyrics is peanuts to what we hear today."

He continued. "Pac was ... one of the greatest lyricist at the time, but if we would’ve had social media back then and everybody would’ve been able to have their opinion, there would’ve been way the f*ck more disrespectful n*ggas at the time. They would’ve been dying to be more disrespectful to Pac ...If Pac was alive right now, they would’ve discredited everything he said just because he was old ... He would’ve been saying the same thing as the young n*ggas, but it would’ve been less credit ’cause he’s old."

Do you agree?
