T-Pain applauds Future's songwriting ability but says the rapper doesn't know how to use auto-tune properly.
T-Pain is well-known for his use of auto-tune, andÂ recentlyÂ took to Instagram to throwÂ some shots at fellow pitch-correction abuser Future.Â The rapper turnt singer pokedÂ fun at the Bugatti usedÂ in the videoÂ for the Ace Hood-helmed track that Future sings the hook on. He also alluded to the fact that Future was jacking his style referring to him smugly as "the new T-Pain".
Pain has now called intoÂ Hartfordâs Hot 93.7 to set the record straight on his comments. While he clarifiedÂ that he respectsÂ the songwriting chops of the Plutonian hook-man, he insists that Future is using his favoriteÂ vocal effect incorrectly.
âI donât think Future gets the technologyâ¦ I donât think he understands how it actually works. Heâs writing great songsâ heâs a great writerâ as far as how he uses Auto-Tuneâ¦ I think heâs thinking you just turn it on, and it happens.â
âA lot of people donât sing with it, they just sing and put it on after, which is a terrible mistake. Thereâs a lot of stuff youâve gotta know about Auto-Tune before you can start using it, because itâs the hot thing to do. But Futureâs still great, heâs doing his thing.â
Besides declaring himself the ultimate authority on auto-tune, Pain also confirmed his new album,Â Stoicville: The Phoenix will be dropping soon.Â "Come & Get It" serves as the first single from the project.
