Rapper, songwriter and producer extraordinaire, T-Pain stopped by Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live (WWHL) alongside Kenya Moore, serving as the playhouse's special guest for the evening. During the show, T-Pain named Diddy as the most difficult artist he's ever worked with when a fan called into inquire about the hitmaker's experience in the studio with different acts. Although T-Pain was quite respectful with his response, he didn't waste anytime with naming the business mogul as his most challenging task to date.
On Sunday (November 15th) T-Pain invaded the playhouse and talked on a plethora of topics as the special guest for the evening. The "Whatever I Want" song maker held no punches when a viewer called in and asked, "who is the biggest pain in the ass out of all the artists that you've worked with?" This prompted an answer almost immediately from T-Pain, where he named Diddy. He detailed, "I wouldn't say 'pain in the ass,' but Diddy was the most what he called 'motivating,' and it was a little discouraging."
He elaborated, "It was a four-day session for one song and Diddy would just push you to do things that you wouldn't normally do. He'd try to get you outside of your box and that's a little hard to do in a few hours. You'd start something, I'd put one track on a beat and he'd just be like, 'Nope, that's not it. Go to the next one.' And I'd be like, 'Well, I didn't...Wait until I get the idea' - 'Nope. Next one.' It was just a lot of that. In the end, him being a 'pain in the ass' kind of helped me be better with myself. With myself, I push myself the way that Diddy would push me."
When Cohen asked if T-Pain ever went on to work with Diddy again after that experience he quickly replied, "I did not" which resulted in laughter from Cohen and Moore.
Despite Diddy being a bit of a perfectionist, it obviously hasn't worked out too bad for the businessman as his astute business acumen has allowed him to amass an impressive fortune, and land him at the top of the Forbes list year after year.
