Apparently, the original version of "Rockstar" by Post Malone and 21 Savage was originally going to feature T-Pain. One Twitter user commented on how much they liked T-Pain's remix of the song, and T-Pain responded saying it was the original. He said, "Thats the original. They took me off. And put 21 on. Me and Joey had it first."

Joey Bada$$ was quick to jump in, confirming that he co-wrote the song, "This is facts... I actually co-wrote the song w post..." Post Malone hasn't commented on the subject but it looks like he didn't have as big of a role in the chart-topping song as we thought.
