“You know when your s**t sounds like somebody else’s s**t,” he said. “You’re making it because you’re in the studio like, ‘What’s the number one record now? We need to make another one of those.”
T-Pain proceeded to yell during the interview, expressing his frustration with new artists copying the styles of rappers and how it's become too commonplace in hip hop.
“Stop doing that! Stop! You’re not original! Give me some original s**t,” he argued. “Are you seriously telling me that you sat here watch me tell a b***h to eat a d**k and you thought that wasn’t original? Are you seriously sitting here telling me ‘eat a d**k’ is the bad part of music? Stop!! Just f**king do something else! Goddamn it! Do some different music!”The “Godfather of Autotune” name-dropped Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Baby and DaBaby, seemingly suggesting that they're artists that other rappers seem to pull from.
“We have all the s**t you’re doing,” he continued. “Lil Uzi Vert is already it. Lil Baby is already doing it. DaBaby is already doing it. It’s literally two n****s with baby in their name that’s already doing all the music you want. Do something else! Do something else! That’s it! That’s all we want. Do something else! Holy shit. We have it! We have it already!"T-Pain's use of auto-tune in the early 2000s made him one of the most influential artists of the era with many emulating a style that he popularized.
Although he amassed a plethora of platinum albums, classic hits and two Grammys, his use of auto-tune began to overshadow his unique talents, causing T-Pain to sink into a depression as other artists said he was ruining music, as Blavity previously reported.
