Taylor Swift and T-Pain’s “Thug Story” Rap Video Takes Off on Its Own

The Taylor Swift and T-Pain collaboration on the comedy rap video of “Thug Story” on the CMT Music Awards show Tuesday night (June 16) is turning into an event on its own. In what Newsday.com called the “craziest collaboration ever,” Swift’s video, in her new role as gangsta rapper T-Sweezy with T-Pain, quickly became one of CMT.com’s most-viewed features. The Los Angeles Times’ Pop and Hiss blog said the video is “a certain iTunes hit if it gets released.” At the awards show, T-Pain said he had had his large “Big Ass Chain” chain made especially for the occasion. He said it was crafted of white gold. View Taylor Swift and T-Pain’s “Thug Story” music video.
