    Auto-tune was something of a taboo in rap, for some it may always be, but for the most part, it's been accepted as a common songwriting tool. As prevalent as it may be today, there was only on figure who can really be attributed with popularizing the effect, and that's T-Pain (sorry, Cher).

    It's been quite a while since T-Pain graced the Top 40 charts that used to seem like his second home, but the "Rappa-Ternt-Sanga" still thinks he's one of the most original artists the game has ever seen. In a recent interview on Montana's Zoo 107.5 FM, Teddy Pain was outspoken about a recent lack of interesting content in the R&B and Hip-Hop worlds. Speaking with host Aaron Traylor, T-Pain said:
  • Blurred Lines: The Integration Of R&B In Hip-Hop
    Blurred Lines: The Integration Of R&B In Hip-Hop
    Apr 2, 2014 at 03:50pm
    In the '90s the rap and R&B scenes had really emerged in to their own distinctiveness. The R&B scene was dominated by acts like Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah, SWV, Ginuwine, Mariah Carey, Brandy and Monica and many many more. Although frequently featured on hip-hop records singing the hook, artists of this genre were still able to maintain their soulful sound and be acknowledged as bonafide R&B acts. The general theme of R&B songs back then were the painful ups and downs of breakups, as well as the need for love. Same goes with hip-hop artists of that era.

    Auto-Tune: Hip-Hop's Rejuvenation
    Mar 12, 2014 at 02:21pm
    People do not like change. Music fans, especially. When the use of Auto-Tune exploded in the mid-2000s, many were skeptical. Today, many still are. Since its creation in 1997, Auto-Tune has crept its way into virtually every genre of music, most notably Hip-hop/R&B. Originally intended to simply change the key of an off-pitch vocal, it is reasonable for one to believe that the voice-modulating software has been taken advantage of- resulting in quite robotic vocals. Commercially, however, Auto-Tune proves most effective when it is strained to the limit.

    In an interview with VladTV, T-Pain sat down and talked about the disparity between the emergence of "gay-friendly" acts in Hip-Hop, directly citing Frank Ocean and Macklemore, and his perception of Urban Music's reluctance to accomodate the LGBT community. Of this, T-Pain commented, saying:
