T-Pain took some time during his Jan. 21 appearance on “The Real” to offer tips to new artists who are in the process of signing recording contracts.
The Grammy award-winning singer, who was promoting his competition series “Go-Big Show,” encouraged individuals to pay attention and read the legal documents before making a final decision. The reason behind T-Pain’s advice was because he claimed new artists could be easily tricked when provided cash advancements while going over negotiations.
T-Pain said, “Just pay attention. That’s really the most common thing amongst new signees and anything like that. People just don’t pay attention. They see the money first and they’re like, ‘Whatever I gotta do. Whatever I gotta do to get this money, I will just sign. Just give me this money and I’ll sign wherever you want me to sign.’ A lot of people do that.”
