When rapper T-Pain was boarding a Delta flight last month, he was anything but thrilled to be hearing the same songs the airline often plays.

So he did what most people do these days — he tweeted about it.

“@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.”

The person running Delta’s Twitter account responded in a good-natured way.

“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”

“Mr. Pain” (his real name is Faheem Rasheed Najm) and Delta exchanged a few more tweets before takeoff. But Delta had a surprise in store for the rapper.

When T-Pain arrived back in Atlanta this weekend after a trip to Los Angeles, he removed his headphones to hear “Buy u a drank” playing over the the speakers on the plane.

“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 (expletive) cool. Made me chuckle like a lil girl ,” he wrote on a video post on Instagram

“Delta lit,” he said in the video.
