T-Pain hosted his epic Town Hall meeting on Instagram Live Tuesday night to preview new collaborations with Rich the Kid and R&B singer Kehlani.  

T-Pain met with a few friends he failed to respond to during the hour-long event titled, “re: Missed DMs.”

“Look bro, I wanted to say sorry I missed your DM. I came back we got a song together. Me, you, and Lil Wayne got a joint on my next album,” T-Pain said before playing a snippet of their track.

Around the 55:00 minute mark, Kehlani joined the live event to express her gratitude for working with the multitalented artist.

“That makes me more happy. It’s them damn DM’s. I don’t know what happen. You DM’d me before and I went back to find it and…it’s gone. But it did show me that you did hit me and we finally got up.”

The swaggy track speaks to T-Pain’s signature rap-singing style and Kehlani’s West Coast taste. “It’s real bossed up fly [ish], I ain’t passenger I’m the pilot,” Kehlani sings on the track, which drops Friday.

“What did we do?” asked T-Pain, before Kehlani responded, “Something crazy.”

Other guests to join T-Pain’s “re: Missed DMs” live include Lil Jon, former Fifth Harmony singer Lauren Jauregui, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, whom T-Pain called ‘The Zuc.” The live event came from T-Pain learning about Instagram’s “request folder” and all of the DMs and mentions he missed from the likes of Viola Davis, Fergie, Keri Hilson and more last month.
