After a backstage mishap sent him to the hospital last week for some emergency dental surgery, [artist id="1998098"]T-Pain[/artist] was back to the grind on Sunday night, a bit bruised, but not too worse for the wear.
“There’s a lot of talk that I flipped over in a golf cart,” Pain told his audience on Sunday at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, Rap-Up.com reported. According to reports, Pain suffered cuts and abrasions, and lost four teeth in the accident, which caused him to miss the Friday stop of Lil Wayne’s I Am Music tour in San Jose, California.
“That’s f—ing true,” Pain confirmed about the accident. “It did happen like three days ago. My ass is on fire right now. My side hurt, my mouth hurt.”
But despite the bumps, bruises and missing teeth, the Titan of AutoTune was reportedly in a good mood on Sunday, telling the crowd, “I bust my ass. I’d show you the marks, but I don’t wanna pull my pants down right now. … I got my teeth fixed the same day. Rich n—a teeth.”
A spokesperson for T-Pain could not be reached for comment at press time, but according to reports, the injury also caused the singer to miss a video shoot for Lil’ Kim’s new single, “Download.” Kim told HipHollywood.com that though Pain missed out on the shoot, he will be in the video. “He’s gonna be in the video, but we’ve got to wait until he heals and gets better.”
Pain appeared to have a good sense of humor about the incident, telling the Gibson crowd, “I don’t give a f— how many golf carts I flip over. If I was any less of a showman tonight, I apologize.”
