Dope! News: Kirk Franklin At Odds With T-Pain Over ‘Silver & Gold’

Posted in Dope! News with tags , on August 29, 2008 by simplydope

It looks like Kirk Franklin had to sit down and have a talk with T-Pain about his song that leaked on the internet ‘Silver & Gold’. Kirk who originally released the song ‘Silver & Gold’ in 1993 on the album Kirk Franklin and the Family, had lyrics that spoke about God:

Silver and gold/ Silver and gold/ I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold/ No fame or fortune/ Nor riches untold/ I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold.

While T-Pain’s version focuses more on alcohol:

“You’ll be hanging, swanging, drinking two types of Patrón,” he sings. “I done mixed up silver and gold/ I done mixed up silver and gold/ I’mma tryin’ to get drunk before this party/ Somebody’s gonna have to carry me home/ I done drank the silver and gold.”

T-Pain’s version doesn’t sample the original Kirk Franklin hit, but the melody is the same which caused people to believe that he was desecrating a gospel song buy talking about alcohol instead. T-Pain talked to MTV News about how the song was just done out of “boredom” and it wasn’t considered to be on the album and how Kirk told him to change the melody:

“It was never supposed to be on my album, the record, it got leaked, then me and Kirk Franklin had to talk. He was doing most of the talking. He was saying it wasn’t no disrespect. He was saying he knows how songs get leaked. He had it happen to him before. He said he wasn’t a saint, and it wasn’t like he never did nothing wrong. It’s not like [Kirk] said I did something wrong. He said if I was gonna go with it, just change the melody. ‘You can still say silver and gold.’ He’s got a lot of people saying stuff to him: ‘How could you let T-Pain destroy a gospel song like that? How could let him talk about alcohol?’ I wasn’t even doing it for a mixtape or nothing. I was literally drinking and made a song. I was bored in the studio. There was nothing else to do. I made it into an alcoholic anthem, which wasn’t good. It spread so fast, everybody thought it was the first single. Somebody was putting it out as ‘the first single off of T-Pain’s new album Pain or Pleasure.‘ Somebody was just making up an album name just so they can put it out. That’s why my album isn’t coming out on [my] birthday no more, because I had to push it back. We had to stop that song.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

T-Pain and Lil Wayne a.k.a. T-Wayne are the perfect collaboration. The two that are on EVERYBODY elses songs finally got one together. The song is okay but I’m liking it more now that I have seen the video.  Very different indeed it seems like Kanye done gave him some inspiration on the set of ‘Good Life’.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Speaking of Kanye here goes the video for ‘Good Morning’ one of my favorite tracks off of Graduation. This video reminds me of myself trying to do good in school make on time for class. Hotness indeed.

Posted in Dope! New Music with tags , , , on May 31, 2008 by simplydope

This track is rumored to be a single off of T-Pain‘s new up and coming album Thr33 Ringz. It’s an okay track but I come to expect more from T-Pain now, like everyone else who features him on a hook. Since T-Pain’s material usually become hits I thought that it would be hotter but it aiight.

Dope! New Music: DJ Khaled Ft Various Artists ‘Out Here Grindin’ || 2 Pistols Ft T-Pain, Lil Kim & Twista ‘She Got It (Remix)’

Posted in Dope! New Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2008 by simplydope

DJ Khaled‘s annoying ass has done it again. He is back with his first single ‘Out Here Grindin’ from his third upcoming album. As much as i can’t stand hearing “We the best” repeated over and over [ and it doesn’t help the Lil Boosie had to spell it too] DJ Khaled knows how to make hits, or is it just all the people he gets to make the hit for him? Either way it is a hot song with the regulars: Akon, Rick Ross, Plies, Trick Daddy, Lil Wayne. and some newcomers: Ace Hood, Lil Boosie.

2 Pistols has released the official remix to his hit single ‘She Got It’, which features T-Pain, Twista, and Lil Kim. 2 Pistols album Death Before Dishonor is expected to be out June 17th.

Dope! New Music/Artists: Dukwon Ft T-Pain ‘Aww Yeah’ || Slim Ft Yung Joc ‘So Fly’

Posted in Dope! New Music with tags , , , on April 20, 2008 by simplydope

A Special Edition of Dope! New Music with some Dope! New Artist. The first goes by the name Dukwon, he has teamed up with the obvious “if-you-want-a-catchy-hook-on-a-song” T-Pain for his debut single entitled ‘Aww Yeah’. T-Pain really only says “Aww Yeah” in this entire song. I was shocked, no verse from Pain, nothing but “Aww Yeah” maybe thats all Dukwon could afford, you know Pain can charge more since his hits list is long as hell.

LISTEN/DOWNLOAD ‘AWW YEAH’ HERE

Slim is not a new artist he is from the major successful boy group 112, but this is his first time as a solo artist. Slim teams up with Yung Joc for a song called ‘So Fly’. I don’t know how I am feeling about this one. I think it’s sorta hot because Slim has a nice voice, but on the other hand it is sorta boring to me. You decide.
