Rapper T-Pain is known for his unique voice using auto-tune.
Many fans assumed he just didn’t have a good singing voice, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Check him out!
T-Pain appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series to perform without any Auto-Tune.
The rapper seemed a bit shy at first, telling the small crowd, “Thank you all for coming out. This is weird as hell for me. Never done anything like this. Didn’t think you guys were gonna be here, but I guess we’re doing this…”
He joked, “I know everybody’s wondering where the Auto-Tune is gonna come from. It’s OK, I got it in my pocket. It’s totally fine. I got it right here, surgically inserted.”
Warning: NSFW Offensive Lyrics
It was amusing to hear him perform his songs such as “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’),” “Up Down” and “Drankin’ Patna” almost as ballads.
T-Pain recently said in an interview for All Things Considered, “People felt like I was using it to sound good. But I was just using it to sound different.”
