T-Pain Says Future Needs A ‘Tune’ Up: “I Don’t Think He Knows How It Works” [Audio]

Grammy-winning singer T-Pain continues to keep fellow Southern hip-hop artist Future on the tip of his tongue, questioning the rapper’s usage of Auto-Tune in his music.

Although T-Pizzle views Future as a great artist, he believes practice would help him master Auto-Tune.

“I don’t think Future gets the technology very well. I don’t think he understands how it actually works,” he said. “He’s writing great songs. He’s a great writer. Keep in mind, you can use Auto-Tune and you can know how to work perfectly, but you still have to know how to write a good song. Just because he sound good doesn’t mean he’s saying good stuff. As far as how he uses Auto-Tune, I don’t think he knows how it works. I think he’s thinking that you just turn it on, and then it just happens. But nah, he writes great, great hooks and great songs themselves. I just don’t think he actually knows how to use Auto-Tune yet.” (Hot 93.7)

A few days ago, the Auto-Tune king taunted Future as the “new” version of himself.

“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)

Atlanta producer/rapper Rocko has since stepped up to defend the Atlanta hip-hop artist.

“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?” (Rocko’s Twitter)

Recently, Future admitted he did not use Auto-Tune the same way T-Pain has in the past.

“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)
