Take a long look at this picture boys and girls. Over the past few years, this guys influence has changed the sound of hip-hop—for better or worst. Yeah, that’s Roger Troutman and today marks a decade since his passing. As the lead singer of Zapp, Roger spawned classic cuts like “Computer Love” and “I Want To Be Your Man” using his signature Talk Box device. And while 90% of the game jacks his immortal techniques, he most remembered for spicing the chorous on 2Pac’s “California Love.” Check out some clips after the jump. T-Pain owes you a Fathers Day card.

Please clarify that Roger used a talkbox and T-Pain uses autotune.
