T-Pain is known for being the king of the Autotune, but one other important distinction about the singer is his ridiculous top hats.
However, the time has come for Pain to retire the collection and he plans on donating them to charity. In a recent interview he explains how the hats were only for promotion and says:
“I have 332 right now. Yeah, I had to number them and sign them because I’m getting rid of them, I’m giving them to the Grammy committee and they’re selling them on eBay and the money goes to foundations and charities. I will not [get more hats.] I’m giving them up, that was just for the Thr33 Ringz album. That was just for a ring leader look, you know I figured, if I’m gonna be fat with dreads, I might as well wear stupid clothes too. That was probably just part of the ensemble of the album.”
I guess Mr. Monopoly is now officially dead. At least he’s honest about it though…
