Over 40 years ago some university professors were insisting that "ain't" was acceptable.  It still hasn't been accepted, and I doubt that it ever will.  Even at that time, probably 99% of the professors would not accept its use in papers.  I cringe when I hear or see the word.  The speakers seems to be saying, "Hey, look at me!  I never went to school!  I have no interest in education!"  Do yourself a favor:  understand how it is used, but don't use it.
