T-Pain On Future’s Use Of Auto-Tune

OurTime.org Hosts Inaugural Youth Ball

Following the recent Bugatti shot towards Future on Instagram, T-Pain clarified his comment during his chat with Big Regg of Hot 93.7. At about the 1:50, here’s what he had to say on Future’s use of auto-tune.

“I don’t think Future gets the technology… I don’t think he understands how it actually works. He’s writing great songs– he’s a great writer– as far as how he uses Auto-Tune… I think he’s thinking you just turn it on, and it happens. A lot of people don’t sing with it, they just sing and put it on after, which is a terrible mistake. There’s a lot of stuff you’ve gotta know about Auto-Tune before you can start using it, because it’s the hot thing to do. But Future’s still great, he’s doing his thing.”

    t-pain, shut up.

  • fsl4lfe

    i would care if this was 2008
    tpain hasnt released a good song in 3 years
    future is trash, horrible, shit etc

  • Dashing

    Completely fair, accurate statement from T-Pain, but of course it will be viewed as hate….

  • Tef

    T-Pain (who can’t sing by the way) is lecturing someone on the use of a piece of technology that essentially turns terrible singing into track accompanied terrible singing. You can’t make this stuff up. T-Pain really gass’d himself up into thinking he has the market cornered on auto-tune. No good can come from this , an auto-tuned beef on wax will literally be the end of music as we know it.

  • Chronic

    Damnnnn T-pain is mad as hell! personally I like Future’s use of it way more, he’s the only dude who doesn’t just use it hit a bunch of high notes. i dont listen to him really and hate most of his songs, but he’s got a couple that I like if I hear em somewhere.

  • Chronic

    And it ain’t “the hot thing to do” anymore, if anything future brought auto-tune back after Jay killed it on DOA

  • 2 Cents

    I get what he’s saying, but what if that’s how future wants to use it? I mean so far it’s working for him. Personally, I think T-Pain is mad that people were claiming they’re tired of Autotune especially after DOA but when future amongst others use it, they’re still able to score themselves a hit. He just misses being the go to man for hookS.

  • The Guy

    WE WANT MORE T PAIN HARLEM SHAKE!!!!!!!!!

  • http://iam607.com/ adrian

    @Tef you killin me! Lol

  • peep game

    yall dumb. music has no limitations.

    and t-pain is a clown.

  • LMAO WELCOME TO THE SICK AND FLABBY LIFE

    LMAO @ AT HE MAD CUZ FUTURE NOT USING THE WAY HE USES IT.

  • MR. CARTOON

    I’m Skylar’s tattoo artist, and I say she’s the Future.

  • JayP The Medical Student

    this reminds me of the guy that can play the piano and crap and can tell you about music theory but cant make a hot record

  • The Truth

    first off t-pain can sing, second this was a true statement, he said nothing wrong, third this shit is dead now, so yea…

  • Evil

    Fuck autotune,that shit was played out a long ass time ago.Only suckers for trash music likes that bullshit.

  • jon42

    who cares what t-pain thinks hes a crab ass nigga and t pain has made hot records @jayp his run is just over

  • chris

    this nigga still alive?

  • Tef

    @adrian, that shit doesn’t scare you B? I’m terrified! Lol

  • DMVinyourchick

    I don’t understand how t pain fell off, chopped and screwed and can’t believe it were among several I dare say classic songs u can see people 20 years from now jammin to em

  • really 23

    t-pain is washed

  • Tef

    @DMVinyour chick. T-Pain and “classics” don’t even belong in the same sentence. The only way his music will be circulating 20 years from now is if someone includes it in a documentary about all the ways this generation fucked up all genres of music.

  • Beaming

    One horrible artist giving another horrible artist advice on horrible technology. Oh the irony….

  • mac DIESEL

    THE AUT-TUNE BUFFOON HAS RETURNED!!!! GO AWAY CLOWN!!!!

    ……*GOES BACK TO LISTENIN’ TO D.O.A.*!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • BLACK EBERT

    Fact is… TPAIN HAS ALREADY ADMITTED ON INTERVIEWS THAT HE BEEN GOING

    THROUGH A MUSICAL DEPRESSION. HENCE WHY WE AINT HEARD HIM WITH NEW SHIT IN

    YEARS.

    WITH THAT BEING SAID… HIS OPINION MAY MAKE SENSE BUT …COULD ALSO BE

    TAINTED BY HIS DEPRESSED EMOTION.

    LESSON: EVERYBODY IS DIFFERENT. STYLES ARE DIFFERENT. VOICES ARE DIFFERENT.

    THERE IS NO “WAY” OF RAPPING, SINGING, THIS IS ART. AND RIGHT NOW, ITS WORKING

    FOR FUTURE. TPAIN WILL HAVE TO PROVE OTHERWISE IF HE CAN FIND HIS MOJO.

    SINCERELY,

    BLACK EBERT.

  • Me

    True Talk Teddy P. Future is Ass

  • xtrajordinary

    this is so tight and true

  • 1234

    futures sound is more gritty and street-esque. t-pain had a more pop high pitched singing sound. future is in right now, t-pain is not.

  • http://www.hulkshare.com/shambamenelek Shamba Menelek

    T-Pain probably knows how to use Auto Tune the best . I would love to pick his brain about other things he knows. Ofcourse Future can use it any way he feels like but I dont see anything wrong with him sharing his opinion since he’s responsible for its popularity in the first place.

    And I think TPain sounds better using it any way.. He got a good clean sound of it.

  • Capeman

    who’s talking about who?

  • mike

    Damn T-pain. Knocking the hustle. If anything, they could’ve got together and did songs. What future eat, don’t make T-pain shit.

  • D Twice

    Its ironic cause all T-Pain does is auto tune and he’s never used it as well as Kanye did on 808’s.(Which is still the worst Kanye album)

    • Jeremy Jahbreal Hadley

      T-Pain did the Autotune on Kanyes 808’s album. He did the engineering of the plugin, just like he did for Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Jamie Fox and a million more.
      So do some research before ya run ya urine trap!!!!

  • djmailerdaemon

    The way t-pain uses is a bit ‘dated’ now, what exactly T-Pain views as futures weakness is actually what makes Future style unique and raw.

  • PolarBearsToenails

    RON BROWZ ABOUT TO SHOW BOTH YALL HOW TO COME CORRECT WITH THIS AUTOTUNE SHIT LOL

  • Pretty Fred

    this clown thinks he invented this sh*t?! Why do you still sound like ass T-pain, if you’re using it the “correct” way?

  • WESTSIDE

    T-pains last great song was “Cant believe it” ft Lil wayne and that was in 2008, since then Jay released DOA and auto tune died out and T-Pain died out, but then here comes Future and i personally think its working for him, I’m not a Future fan, but hes doing his thang, Mr Pain cant hate

  • DJ Semtex’s Prothsetic

    tpain jealous right now that future hot right now and he not, even tho hes right about future not knowing how to make decent music with his god awful, whatever it is he does when he tries to sing IDK prob just a trend – on second thought PLUTO 3D IN STORES NOW dam future soudns good when he sings

  • http://soundcloud.com/redvelvetbeats CORY

    these dudes aint got SHIT on ron browz doe real talk

  • Foreign luccini

    *why u wanna playa hate on me* Luniz operation stackola!!

  • UnknownUniverse

    I think T-Pain is a little hurt Future will be the new man everyone will get on the hooks lol

  • TheOne86

    T-Pain is super talented. He’ll come back with a couple big features and then have a decent shot to release his own Top 10 record. He just needs to keep doing those big features, That’s how he stayed hot between albums in 06-’10. Lets not forget T-Pain is a GRAMMY winner who literally ran entertainment for a good 4 year span. More than most artists.

    Future will last another 8-12 months tops. His style will only stay relevant for so long. Next year it’ll be on with the next thing.

    My bet is on Pain.
