T-Pain is opening up about his battle with depression and credits Chris Brown and Ne-Yo for helping him overcome.
“I slept, drank,” said the 28-year-old-rapper, whose given name is Faheem Rasheed Najm, to MTV. “I was depressed for no reason. I don’t know why. It was just weird.”

As a result of his downward turn, there is now “a lot of broken stuff” in his house, he chuckled.
The “Up Down” rapper proudly credits Brown for sticking by him during that time. “I did it for [Brown],” said T-Pain. “I did it for everybody, but, you know, Chris the most, because he was going through so much with all the backlash and stuff he was going through. And I still called him, hit him up, visit him in the studio, checked on him, make sure he was OK, went by his house, just popped up in places that he was.”
“Ne-Yo stayed down,” he recalled about his friend who joined him at every strip club. “Everybody else just kind of fell off and was just like, ‘Aight, well, make a new song and we’ll call ya.’ ”
As you can see in the photo above, CB & T-Pain still support each other — which is good. Right now, Chris could use all the positive support he can get.
