T-Pain Talks NASCAR, LeBron James And More
. (Radio.com) "Clouds." That's the name of the song T-Pain would write if he was ever asked to write the main song for a movie about NBA superstar LeBron James ("I associate him with those clouds of dust that he used to do"), referencing James' longtime penchant for tossing chalk in the air before games.
That's just one of the sports-related revelations made by the recording artist whose singular, hit-filled career has seen him pioneer the use of Auto-Tune and then get called out for using it as a crutch, before ultimately silencing his critics with an outstanding 2014 NPR performance showcasing his immense and obvious talents.
He's adamant that NASCAR is indeed an actual sport, having been inside one the cars ("just the endurance alone that you need, that's very athlete-like"), and prefers golf to ping-pong, because it's less stressful and has better pants.
T-Pain prefers basketball to football if only because you're less likely to have your head bashed in playing basketball ("there's many less concussions"), and chooses college football over pro.
See where he stands on bowling versus tennis and his pragmatic reasoning when deciding between ice skating and gymnastics in the full video interview here.
