T-Pain has been "on each end of the spectrum" financially because he went from having R606 million to having to borrow money to buy his kids burgers.
The 33-year-old rapper - who has children Lyriq, 15, Muziq, 12, and Kaydnz, nine, with wife Amber Najm - has reflected on how he's been "on each end of the spectrum" financially and his lows have given him more of an appreciation for the value of cash.
Speaking on "The Breakfast Club", he said: "So now I know what the high end is and what the low end is. 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**t about money."
To emphasise how bad things got he spoke of the moment he had to borrow money just so he could buy his children food.
He said: "I, like, had to borrow money to get my kids Burger King."
