In a recent interview, T-Pain recalls the time he had his chain snatched:
T-Pain: There’s one [song] called “Havoc.” It’s a true story about when I got my chain snatched in New York the night before my first album dropped. Somebody snuck a gun in the club and stuck it in my stomach, but I wasn’t going to give my chain up — it was my first chain. He pushed me back and as I was fallin’ he snatched the chain and ran out the club. It was pretty weird. It’s such an in-depth story, it’s like a 5 minute song.
Blender.com: Did you find the chain on eBay?
T-Pain: Nah. We found it, though. He stole it to sell back to me … but I didn’t buy it back.
Blender.com: Is that guy still alive?
T-Pain: [ominously] No, he’s not alive.
That sounds awfully suspect. Is buddy boy confessing or just plain perpetratin’? Hmmm.
