T-Pain Blasts Kanye West For Using Music Wrong
Kanye West has been criticised for not using auto-tune "correctly".
The rapper is a fan of the vocal-correcting software and while T-Pain - who helped popularise its use – thinks the Stronger hitmaker makes "great" music, he doesn't think he is making the most of the voice processor.
He explained to HuffPost Live: "Kanye uses it, but he doesn't use it correctly. He makes great music with it, but the way that I use it and the way that I've shown Chris Brown and Jamie Foxx to use it, he doesn't use it that way."
The Up Down singer went on to explain that Kanye should use auto-tune to "catch mistakes" before they happen. He said: "[Kanye] sings without it first and then he puts [Auto-Tune] on after he's done with the vocals.
"You don't know how it's going to come out. You can't catch your mistakes before they happen. So sometimes it gets a little bit wobbly and things like that..."
However, T-Pain admitted he was a fan of Kanye's 2008 album 808s & Heartbreak, which made heavy use of auto-tune. He said: "[808s & Heartbreak] was actually good, but I had a lot to do with that album."
