We’ve been reminiscing with MTV.com’s POSTED artist T-Pain all month long. He drove us down memory lane with stories about his taxi driving days back in Tallahassee, Fla., and he recently reflected on his craziest 5 a.m. moment. This week, we fast-forward to the present by sharing his new documentary-style webisode and getting T’s suggestion on who needs some Auto-Tune up on their tracks.
Up first, we’ve got episode one of T-Pain’s “The World of Pain,” which closely (and kind of hilariously) documents the life of the “Let Me Talk” singer. The show introduces behind-the-scene footage of T’s backstage life (warning: scary clowns included), and we even get a quick training session on how to hang with him. This is the stuff they need to be teaching in school!
The next clip has T-Pain contemplating what artist he thinks should take up Auto-Tune, and after some heavy consideration, T decides on a fellow rapper: “I think Eminem should use Auto-Tune… cause he’s doing a lot of singing now. He should try it at least once.” Coming from the unofficial master of Auto-Tune but also someone who sounds great without it, that comment could be a compliment or a diss. We’re not sure… We’ll let you fellas sort that one out.
