    T-Pain

    T-Pain has been a superstar for ages, but that doesn't mean he's always been rich.

    Speaking to The Breakfast Club last week, he's opened up about his ups and downs with money.

    He told hosts Charlamagne tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee that “I’ve been mega-rich, you know, I’ve been super broke, right in the middle of thinking I was mega-rich, and then got rich again, and you know learned how to really give a s— about money.”

    He also told the hosts that at one point he had $40 million, but has also hit zero in his bank account. “I, like, had to borrow money to get my kids Burger King.”

    However, he's a lot better with money now, which is a relief for fans (and his accountant).

    He's also spoken about how people have a skewed perception of what goes into being a musician. 

    “There’s a lot of s— that comes with it. When you put out records, you gotta do the right things, you gotta, you know, you gotta go through the motions and really give a s— about it. You get back up and you learn, man."
