It is no longer unusual to see top Atlanta rappers at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. One of these frequently flying rappers is T-Pain, real name Faheem Rasheed Najm, who was so tired of Delta Airlines’ music selection on the plane, he took to Twitter to complain.
@Delta we gotta change these boarding/taxiing songs more often guys. All of Us Million milers (quick brag) have to hear these same joints multiple times a day. I gotta go perform in the staples center in a minute and Adele just put me in the weirdest mood. Now I’m crying. Thanx.

Then the person monitoring the Delta Twitter feed responded:
Our boarding/taxing songs are intended to provide a relaxing experience. Can you imagine what would ensue if we played “buy u a drank” (a personal fave), with everyone snappin’ their fingers and what not? We’d never get anywhere on time. Necessary sacrifices, Mr. Pain. *HBN

This past weekend when T-Pain arrived back in Atlanta, he took off his headphones and was shocked. Take a look at the Instagram video below:

We just landing back in Atlanta from LAX and @delta decided they wanna show out and starts blastin “Buy u a drank” over the speakers in the plane. Not gon lie it felt pretty damn cool. Made me chuckle like a lil girl 😂 shit was wild loud too. Big thank you to @delta and the super solid flight attendants for getting the flight lit 🔥 @delta I see what you mean. I didn’t wanna get off the plane. Solid facts 😂
