T-Pain is the latest hip-hop personality to come out as a lover of drift street imports. His loose interpolation of the Big Tymers’ seminal hit “Get Your Roll On” features a mild interjection from Tory Lanez, whom he gave the veritable co-sign more than a month ago, along similar lines. Back in December, it was Tory Lanez who sought T-Pain’s permission to sample “I’m Sprung,” a yet to be released inclusion to his forthcoming to his Chixtape 5 project. This time around, it was T-Pain taking permissive action, by upending the legendary “Get Your Roll On” video concept with a few revamped elements.
For one, T-Pain foregoes the luxury fleet depicted in the original, for a collection of import tuners from Japan. With “Getcha Roll On” hopes to open a fresh new chapter in his career, after preventing a swan song in 2018. Before you cast T-Pain off into the abyss, consider the weight the following: “Getcha Roll On” is quite possibly an indication of things to come in Chapter Number Two of his career.
