Rocko responds to T-Pain's comments that accused Future of not knowing how to properly use auto-tune.
Rocko has recently been subjected to a lot of attention regarding his song "U.O.E.N.O.", which Rick Ross spit some controversial lines over. The ATL rapper has now decided to weigh in on another, relatively less pressing controversy, which is T-Pain's recent critique of fellow auto-tune abuser, Future. In an interview with VladTV, Rocko came to the defense of his frequent collaborator.
“I feel like T-Pain was out of line,” said Rocko in response to T-Pain's claim that the Pluto rapper didn't know how to use auto-tune properly. “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 then stressed that T-Pain should have considered the fact that Future may have looked up to him before dissing the Askronaut.
“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.”
So far no radio stations have pulled Pain's music from the airwaves for dissing Future.
