T-Pain revealed in a recent interview that his famed 2005 hit “I’m ‘N Luv (Wit a Stripper)” originally started as a joke.
Speaking in a recent episode of Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin’, the Nappy Boy Entertainment founder shared that the song’s origins were based on a friend. “My homeboy was tryna save strippers in the club,” T-Pain said. “The song was a joke. I was literally making fun of him.” He continued, “We was just in the studio f*cking around and Big Boi saying it was dope and I said yep.”
“I’m ‘N Luv (Wit a Stripper)” was released in 2005 as part of T-Pain’s debut album, Rappa Ternt Sanga. The track eventually became one of his most celebrated releases, peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
