Fabolous has confirmed having a phone conversation with T-Pain and apologizing for his Twitter disses made towards the singer's image and career.
Speaking with radio personality Angie Martinez, Fab detailed their conversation.
"He called me, he hit me, he texted me and said to call him," Fab revealed in an interview. "At first, I just apologized really because I kinda jumped out the window a little bit and didn't even check in to it before I knew what I was doing. I apologized for that. Then he was just explaining the whole thing with Jay, how he felt Jay was coming at him a little bit and I told him 'I just heard an interview this morning with Jay -- on a morning show doing an interview -- saying you were one of the guys who brought it back to music and he respected you for doing it plus a few other people but he didn't like the whole genre of music jumping on auto-tune....' I had to backdown because I really provoked it, but still, I got some false information...This is how stuff starts in the industry." (Hot 97)
Pain said he cleared things up with Fab in an interview earlier today.
"Me and Fab talked today, he apologized, he said it was stupid on his part," Pain revealed. "Somebody made a fake T-Pain page today saying nothing but 'F Jay-Z' and 'F Fab' and then Fab went in on me." (Power 105.1)
Loso taunted Pain via his Twitter page Tuesday afternoon.

He previosly spoke with SOHH about Jay-Z's "Death of Autotune" record.
"Jay-Z is like the so to say trend killer if he states that something is done," said Fab. "Certain people may feel that way but never say it... but Jay, he'll take the stand and everybody be feelin' that way and be like, 'Yeah Jay's a hero for saying what we've been feeling.' I think what Jay is trying to do is help people get back to the talent of rapping. Let's get some artistry back in the music, some good writing. I think 'Death of Autotune' is dope. I think it's good for the climate too. At some point a lot of these kids, artists are coming out and they're just putting this autotune on their voice... I guess Jay is just tired of everybody jumping on that bandwagon. I kinda was over it too." (SOHH)
