T-Pain performs three tracks for NPR's "Tiny Desk Concert" series.
This one goes out to everyone who's ever questioned T-Pain's talent. Sure, the dude is basically single-handedly responsible for popularizing auto-tune in the hip-hop world, but he's got vocal chops that most people don't know about too. Funnily enough, Teddy Pain showed up to the NPR offices to perform (sans auto-tune) for their "Tiny Desk Concert" series, which hasn't had many rappers on it in the past.
Performing with a keyboard player, T-Pain runs through bare-bones versions of "Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin')," "Up Down (Do This All Day)," and "Drankin' Patna." Haters be damned, T-Pain has serious vocal skills.
