Future Receives Support Over Auto-Tune Dispute: “F*CK T-PAIN”

Atlanta rapper Future is keeping mum on recent shots fired his way courtesy of Auto-Tune king T-Pain as longtime friend/hip-hop artist Rocko steps up to voice his issues.

Rocko did not hesitate to speak out against Pain this week through his Twitter page.

“WORK…..,” he tweeted February 11th.

“F*CK T-PAIN”

“”P.S.A….. NEVER SAY ANYTHING OUT OF THE WAY TO OR ABOUT MY FAMILY!!!!!!! WE ON GO!!”

“WHAT HAPPENED TO PEOPLE SALUTING FELLOW ARTIST FOR THEIR SUCCESS ? WHY PEOPLE GOTTA TRY TO TAKE CHEAP SHOTS?”

“BUT ON ANOTHER NOTE I JUST SAVED MONEY BY SWITCHING TO GEICO… HAHAHAHA” (Rocko’s Twitter)

Rocko’s comments are reportedly fueled from T-Pizzle crowning Future the “New T-Pain” on Instagram.

“Funny thing about that Bugatti you woke up in, #ItsMine #OhTheIrony hahahaaaa funny how “the new T-Pain” has to use “The old T-Pain’s Bugatti for his Bugatti hook hahaaaaa yea. So. There’s That. Not at all throwing shots at @Acehood that’s my man 100 grand. – T-Pain” T-Pain is clearly referring to Future who sings, “I woke up in a new Bugatti,” on Ace Hood’s, “Bugatti,” track. Do you look at Future as the new T-Pain? (Real Talk NY)

Future recently distinguished his usage of Auto-Tune compared to artists like T-Pain.

“When I first used Auto-Tune, I never used it to sing. I wasn’t using it the way T-Pain was. I used it to rap because it makes my voice sound grittier. Now everybody wants to rap in Auto-Tune. Future’s not everybody. The people who are taking my style are like my babies. I’ve got a tribe of kids that want to be like me… But I understand why people want to imitate the things I do. They’re dope. It comes naturally to me. My fans can expect greatness. If I wasn’t me, I would want to be me.” (Complex)

A couple years ago, Pain defended moving past the one-time infectious voice enhancer.

“You can’t stick with one thing forever,” T-Pain explains. “After you figure out how stuff works, you’ve got to start making your own. When everybody talks about (Auto-Tune), they pretty much say T-Pain. So what simpler thing to do? It’s supply and demand. You want the T-Pain sound? I’m gonna give you the T-Pain effect.” The T-Pain Effect, which lists for $99, gives users access to the rapper’s “whole vocal chain” of effects, along with 50 beats and a full complement of recording and distribution software. “They can sonically sound like me,” T-Pain notes, “but nobody’s ever gonna be able to write songs like T-Pain. There’s only one of those.” (Billboard)
