T-Pain is preparing his new album, Thr33 Ringz, to be released this fall and he plans to address the people who have copied his auto-tuned robot-like sound. T-Pain has used the trademark sound on Kanye West’s “Good Life” and Flo Rida’s “Low,” and now he says copying is getting out of hand, stating “People I look up to, legends who don’t have to be using Auto-Tune, they using it."
T-Pain even put his thoughts into two tracks for the album to address the situation called “F.U.” and “Karaoke." In the songs he goes at “karaoke n*ggas” by saying things like “Your daughter told you to get off daddy’s d*ck!” Since T-Pains album in 2005, many rappers have used the software and sound like Snoop Dogg in “Sensual Seduction” and Lil Wayne’s in “Lollipop.”
T-Pain passed on performing on Kanye West's “Glow In The Dark Tour” so he could record over 36 songs in just two months. T-Pain doesn't plan to change his style for the new album saying “Auto-Tune’s stuck with me,” he explained. “People told me to stop using it, but I would not stop. It works!”
