T-Pain has combined some of his most well-known songs in a very awesome way.

A mashup performance video has surfaced on YouTube that features the King of Autotune doing away with the effects and stripping down his music to its pure essence – and the results are startling. He teams up with To The Beat with Kurt Hugo Schneider to perform bits of songs like “Buy U A Drank” and “I’m In Love With A Stripper” with the simple backing of a piano and violin.

This is definitely T-Pain as you’ve never heard him before, and if the comments section under the video is meant to be believed, the way he was always meant to be heard.
