T-Pain has defended himself after a video went viral of him dancing to Kendrick Lamar‘s Drake diss song “Not Like Us.”

During a performance in Las Vegas over the weekend, the “I’m Sprung” hitmaker began getting down with some groovy dancing when the chart-topping hit blared through the speakers.

After catching flak from Drake fans who took issue with the clip, Pain hit back on X (formerly Twitter), writing: “Welp! You heard it here first folks. Don’t drunk dance in a robe. Somehow it’s a political statement now.

“Pls don’t let somebody else’s beef kill y’all’s fun. Let ppl dance PLEASE!! Mustard killed that fuckin beat tho. It’d be pretty weird if you didn’t dance to it.”

T-Pain previously offered his thoughts on the beef between Drake and Kendrick Lamar and refused to pick a side.

Speaking on his Nappy Boy Radio show in April, he said: “Drake or Kendrick? I choose to mind my fucking business. It ain’t got nothing to do with me. It ain’t gonna hurt my pockets if I pick one or the other. Don’t give a fuck.

“It’s cool, like, the sport of rap and stuff is fine but past that? ‘I wonder what Drake did to make everybody so mad.’ Who gives a shit? He ain’t do it to you. Keep moving.”

He added: “You’re gonna not go to work tomorrow to try to figure out what Drake did? No. Still gotta go to work. Go to fucking work! Listen to the songs — not the A.I. ones, those are fucking terrible.

“The fact that some people can’t figure out, especially that last K. Dot song was A.I. Oh my God. Not only did it sound A.I. but some of them bars were wack as shit. And if that was K. Dot, we would have had some kind of problem.”

Snoop Dogg is another artist who has refused to pick a side in the feud, praising both rappers for bringing lyricism to the forefront of their battle.

“Well, the only thing I want to say about that whole scenario is that I want to give both of them a shout out for raising the bar as far as lyrics, as far as song-making and writing because the writing has been upped since the confrontation,” he said in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight.

He added: “Those are my nephews. I’m not in the middle of it. I support both of them and that’s personal business, not my business.”

Snoop also said: “As far as what they did for the industry and the rap game, they made you rap again. You can’t mumble your way and gimmick your way to a song no more, buddy. So thank y’all.”
