J has worked with both Akon and T-Pain. See what he has to say about these stars!

It’s the battle of who is the better artist, Akon or T-Pain! Akon has been nominated for five Grammy Awards and won one America Music Award. T-Pain has been nominated for 11 Grammy Awards and won one in 2010. Now, J Randall, a singer and entertainer himself, has something to say about working with both stars!

Akon‘s older. He’s kind of like the wise one teaching me the ways,” J tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “And T-Pain just feels like a best friend.”

“I was actually a little intimated at first with Akon,” J says of working with Akon to record the song “Oh La La.” “He just has a presence about him that is like bigger than life. At first, he was a little stand offish. But working with him was a great learning experience because I’m a fan of his and I was kind of in awe through the whole process.”

“T-Pain is the type of guy you meet. You have a conversation with him for about 30 seconds and you feel like you went to high school with him,” J tells us. “He’s a real warm person. He’s very approachable. He’s kind of like the life of the party. The guy attracts attention. He’s just a star. When you’re sitting around, everybody just watches the guy. He’s kind of a clown, a comedian. It was great working with T-Pain.” J and T-Pain’s song “Can’t Sleep” should be available some time next year.

But BFF’s, we leave it to you to decide which artist you like better. Vote below!
