Who was your favorite performer to be on stage with?
T-Pain. The guy has so much energy and style. When he first came out with In Love with a Stripper a few years back I did a show with him in Long Beach CA at the Vault 350. I opened up the show for him and then he invited me on stage to perform with him. Great experience. That’s when I realized that T-Pain was the truth.
