Video: T-Pain Sings Without Auto-Tune

Written by Nigel D. / 10.30.14

T-Pain’s fingerprints are all over pop and R&B and hip-hop. He wasn’t the first musician to use Auto-Tune as an instrument — he noticed it on a Jennifer Lopez remix, and remembers “Deep” well — but it was, as he says, his style. For a while, in the mid-2000s, he lived at the top of the charts. He dominated that brief moment of our lives when ringtones were a thing. He was celebrated as an innovator, and he happily took his talents where he was invited, which was everywhere.

But somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. “People felt like I was using it to sound good,” says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. “But I was just using it to sound different.”

Do you prefer T-Pain’s music with the auto-tune?

Nigel D. Introduces

Written by Nigel D. / 10.29.14


So I knew I wanted a site of my own back in 2006 but I didn’t know where to start. I saw something about a “blog.” I did my research on what it was and created a free blog called “RealTalkNY” August 3rd, 2006. I wasn’t sure what direction I would take with RealTalkNY. But with me frequently attending concerts and getting great footage I decided to focus on music and entertainment. I never imagined I would be able to make a living from the site and get over 180 million hits. Over the years my interests have broadened, especially with me traveling the world. So instead of forcing everything on one site I have decided to create a lifestyle site called The site will focus on travel, fashion, relationships,movies, health and other topics I feel like speaking on. RealTalkNY will focus on the Hip Hop culture, sports and whatever hot topics I feel like posting. I will still post some fashion and trailers on here.

Both sites will provide exclusive content and be updated daily. If you are a fan of RealTalkNY you will also enjoy DistinctHype. People always ask me about my travels, from seeing photos to getting tips, so they will get that on the new site. Check out the site and leave feedback below.
