Speaking to Fader recently, autotuned rapper T-Pain spoke at great length about his admiration for Young Turks’ most exciting signee FKA Twigs.

​“Twigs actually changed my whole perspective on the music industry,” T-Pain said after revealing they’ve been working together on material. “She made me proud of myself again, the way she was talking to me.”

T-Pain (real name: Faheem Rasheed Najm) continued: “I told her I wanted to do some stuff, like videos and put out some songs. But I was like, “I can’t.” She was like “Why?” I was like, “You know, the label and stuff like that.” She was like “Why? Do they control you? How are they controlling you? What, are they gonna sue you? Cause that’s their money, too.” (Laughs) She opened my eyes. I felt like I was brainwashed and she came and reset me. Like, “Why am I not putting out songs? Why am I not doing this?” Cause every time I see her, there’s a new video, a new song. I’m like, “Your label’s okay with that?” And she’s like, “I don’t give a fuck about that.” (laughs). It changed my life, you know, the way she looked at things, and I tell her every time I talk to her. She changed my life. It was amazing.”
