Watch T-Pain perform a slew of classics and "Goal Line" with Blac Youngsta.
T-Pain is one of the most influential artists of the 2000's. His use of auto-tune impacted how hip hop and R&B is created in a modern world. As of late, he's been on the road on his acoustic tour where he's been performing classic hits without the aid of a vocodor. Yesterday, he hit up TRL to not only perform his recent single "Goal Line" with Blac Youngsta but he also performed a stripped down medley of his classic hits.
On yesterday's episode of TRL, T-Pain popped by to perform a slew of classics. During his medley, he played "Buy U A Drank," "I'm N' Luv (Wit A Stripper)," his Young M.A. assisted single "F.B.G.M", "Bartender" and more. The interesting part of the performance is that the backing track only consisted of a violin and a soft piano. T-Pain also performed the whole thing without his signature auto-tune. He later brought Blac Youngsta where the two of them delivered a high-energy performance of "Goal Line." The two performances contrasted but they exemplified his diversity as an arist.
During his visit to TRL, he also discussed the acoustic tour he's currently on. The idea of it came from his episode of "To The Beat" with Kurt Huge Shneider.
"When everybody heard it, they were automatically was like 'yo, I want to see a full joint of this,' so I'm like, 'cool. I'll give a whole two hour medley of what we're doing," he says, "The whole entire tour sold out in 26 seconds."
His performance on TRL was a nice snippet of what to expect from the tour, especially for the people who haven't had the opportunity to roll up. The acoustic tour he's currently on only consists of six dates. Included in those are New York City, San Francisco, Cambridge, West Hollywood, Chicago.
The tour comes at an interesting time. A few weeks back, he announced that his forthcoming album Oblivion is slated to drop on November 17th. The tracklist has yet to surface but he's already released the Blac Youngsta featured "Goal Line" as well as "F.B.G.M" featuring Young M.A recently so there's a chance those might end up on the album.
