Grammy-winning singer T-Pain has reportedly crowned fellow Southern hip-hop artist Future the new version of himself, years after sparking an Auto-Tune trend.
According to reports, T-Pizzle hopped onto his Twitter page to reference Future as the modern-day “New T-Pain.”
“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)
Last month, Future clarified his usage of Auto-Tune compared to Pain back in the late 2000′s.
“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)
