T-Pain’s Going On Strike

[vodpod id=Video.3853789&w=425&h=350&fv=configParams%3Dinstance%3Dnews%26amp%3Bvid%3D528785]

What do you when you can’t sell another single in stores? No, you don’t light a match—you go on strike. Yep, that’s T-Pain’s plan. With record sales down, The Autotuner tells 1515 that he’s not releasing another album until they pick back up. With that said…

“I got the mastered version of my album in my car right now. But I’m not bringing my album out until these artists start selling records again, ’cause ain’t nobody selling records unless you Susan Boyle,” T-Pain told MTV News. Even though his website is promoting his forthcoming effort RevolveR, the collabo king insisted he’s going to fall back until album sales pick up. “I’m not doing nothing. I’m not bringing out no album, not dropping no more new singles until people start selling records again, and that’s the approach I think everybody should take unless you Susan Boyle or Miley Cyrus.”

  • Ac@pella!

    Looks like that mastered version is gonna be sittin’ in the whip 4 a loooooooonnnnnnnggggggggg time then…

  • will

    LOL Nigga Please so your master Plan is to go from selling 300 K records to 0 Records it doesnt make any sense becuz in this music game your replaceable look how bad the music is now then it was a couple of years ago when everybody was selling all that happened was that the people with the best music or best sounds 1st week increased

    but at the end of the day its people who play music for quarters on the street so if everybody was to go on strike that nigga playing for change will have a record deal and the number 1 album in the country

    it doesnt make sense and its not going to work to go from selling 300 k records to not selling none that doesnt help

    and the Label is not going to let you hold material which they already paid for you to complete his ass will get dropped wih the quiccness

    thats the most stupid idea i ever heard becuz at the end of the day nobody has to buy the disc so he should be thankful that he sold 400 k copies last time out becuz if these white people are willing to go to the hood for they cocaine fix they are willing to go to the hood to picc up a burnt cd

  • will

    the funny thing about him and dream statements is that they talk as if they are in charge and they have the power to do what they’re saying Nigga you cant stop releasing music until that white man say you can stop or that white piece of paper you signed your name at the bottom say you can stop yall aint got Jay-Z money i mean jay Had 1 album left and had to pay 5 million dollars to get out of that 1 album left on the contract

  • http://twitter.com/ThomasRZ Ziggy

    @Donn if you think Top 20 means a song is hot, you lose. You lose majorly. You are the Nets. You are the Lions.

    The fact you mentioned MUSIC in relation to a list which includes songs by the swamp rat Ke$ha should be grounds to confiscate your radio, iPod, computer, walkman, record player, etc. You don’t deserve music

  • devante

    I think he should have cashed in on more albums while he was hot.

  • Donn

    Just cus u dnt like it, doesn’t mean its not hot dumbasses, the world is bigger than your opinions. And second of all, these artist don’t get on that Billboard without having talent so chill. And this is RAPRADAR??? They fuckin’ posted TELEPHONE when the video dropped so kill urself

  • rellboogie

    You are the dumbest ni**a I think is in the industry. With the economy so fucked up and the internet no one is buyin records they just download. So whenever you think you are doing the right think Big Brother is watching.

  • Everybody Hates Chris

    I’ll be looking for the T-Pain under “You Played Yourself” when he finally drops an album after his “strike” and it flops harder than Fat Joe on a diving board.

    the death of auto-tune was last year. this year we gon’ cremate that shit.

  • Stat3030

    All I gotta say is:
    SHUT THE FUCK UP T-FAIL.

    Well dam…

  • ST

    IF HE CANT PRODUCE A HIT BETTER THAN ‘BARTENDER’ THEN MAYBE HE NEEDS TO GIVE IT UP. CAUSE REVERSE COWGIRL WAS THE WORST SONG OF THE YEAR. SOUNDED LIKE HE OVERDOSED ON AUTOTUNE!

    (EXCUSE THE CAPS-NOT YELLING)

  • I FUCK HOOKERZ AND JIZZ ON THEIR TITTIES

    fuck that nappy headed nigger

  • Ghost on set

    Lol ain’t nobody trying to hear that bullshit album.

  • Krypto

    THANK GOD……..I DONT WANNA HEAR HIS SHIT ANYMORE

  • Midnite

    Please stay on strike so my ears don’t have to bleed hearing your WACK SHIT!!Goodbye!!!

  • Jordy

    (in my auto-voice)
    thank you Jesus, this is the best thing you have done for muuuuussssic!
    LOL

  • http://differentkitchen.blogspot.com/ @Stellaskid

    Y’all can try and kill Donn all you want but his point still stands, there are major hit records out right now still using autotune so saying its over isn’t really accurate….

  • AKizzle

    T pain is a hit maker. Anyone elses song he’s ever touched turned to gold. It’s easy for you to hate from way down there at the bottom. Be easy haters! Sleep well!

  • Ghost

    you fags jump from fad to fad like a bunch of teenage girls,last year you were loving his shit and now your claiming he sucks

  • Karl

    I’ll pay for a copy of the album for him not to release it

  • Stregano

    I will buy more records if T-Pain promises to keep that album in his car. For the love of god please go away T-Pain.

  • Stregano

    @Ghost Sorry, I posted and then saw your post,

    For the record, I have always hated the over-use of auto tune especially when done incorrectly. A perfect example, Daft Punk. Their autotune is just amazing.

    Autotune and autotune albums/artists need to go away. Somebody mentioned the song Tik Tok. Yeah, that song sucks too.

    Now, you may be saying, “You say it is crap, but you listen to it”. I listen to it once so that I can have a proper opinion about it.

    For all I know, T-Pain’s little brother is making an autotune album that will shut me up about autotune being horrible.

    I also think that 808 and Heartbreaks would be an amazing album if rereleased without autotune. Before you say it won’t sell, Linkin Park’s Reanimation was a rerelease album that did very well. A person like Kanye could pull it off.

  • Donn

    The fact of the matter is, autotune usage doubled in the past yr that Jay made that DOA song, and its not goin’ nowhere because the industry is going pop and ppl who listen to more than just rap love autotune. So say whatchu want, its not going nowhere

  • Ghost

    Fair enough Stregano. I don’t even like T-Pain really, I just don’t like these rapradar tweens that change their opinion every five seconds. The same people who defended soulja boi because he was “hot” are now dissing him.

  • SomeCallMeSatan

    I wonder if he thinks he’ll be missed.
    Is there something in the water making these niggas delusional and arrogant as hell because if so bottle that and send someover my way.

    I like auto tune as much as the next but T-Pizzle my nizzle yo tizzle onthe auto-tune thizzle is as played out as the Snoop Dogg langua….izzle.

    So.. Get a VH1 show! I love watching niggas do what they do best, be niggas.

  • MrBosco4

    Ya’ll hating HEAVYYYY!!!! he’s smart. and he’s planning ahead. then u guys say “wait…whats planning ahead mean?” yeah, try it. it usually helps. and who ever said, “have u ever made a hit that somebody else hasnt been on” what an ignorant thing to say, cuz tht just shows, rappers neeed Pain’s hooks to make a hit, and this dude spits fiiiiirrreeee. so hate on someone else. NappyBoy 4 Life.
