Written by Ken Simmons on November 23, 2021
Following Kanye West and Drake ending their long time feud last week, it appears that T-Pain and Usher have finally squashed their beef as well.
T-Pain is famous for his use of Auto-Tune, and earlier this year, he revealed he became depressed in 2013 when Usher criticized his use of the audio processor. While filming the Netflix docuseries This Is Pop, the Grammy-winning rapper/producer recalled the “Burn” singer’s words. “He was like, ‘Man, you kind of f***ed up music,’” he recalled, adding, “I didn’t understand. Usher was my friend.”
But the two veteran stars met Sunday and hugged on stage at an event promoting Dave Chappelle‘s Live in Real Life documentary
“I love you, bro,” T-Pain said to Usher. “I’m telling you, we ain’t going through nothing, bro. We ain’t going through a Godd**n thing. It’s all love. In times when we’re divided the most, we need to be together the most. I love you, bro. I’m never not gonna love you, bro, trust me, my dawg.”
For his part, Usher posted an Instagram photo of them hugging and commented, “We got you homie. Thanx to all my bruthas & sistas … for making this an epic night! That Southern Hospitality.”
T-Pain’s credits include songs with Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Ludacris, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Jamie Foxx, Snoop Dogg, Nelly, and DJ Khaled, In 2007, T-Pain collaborated with Usher when he produced the R. Kelly “Same Girl” remix featuring the eight-time Grammy winner.
