After posting a picture on Instagram (which has since been deleted) claiming that it was his Bugatti that Future was seen by in Ace Hood’s “Bugatti” music video earlier this week, T-Pain has returned to ruffle more feathers. In a recent interview with Hot 93.7, Teddy Pain stated that he thinks Mr. Pluto doesn’t actually know how to use his trademark Auto-Tune. He did give Future credit for his songwriting, but said he believes the Atlanta rapper/singer hasn’t quite mastered the pitch correction device he made popular in Hip-Hop and R&B throughout the late ’00s. Let the war of wobbly words commence…
I don’t think Future gets the technology very well. I don’t think he understands how [Auto-Tune] actually works. He’s writing great songs. He’s a great writer. Keep in mind, you can use Auto-Tune and you can know how to work perfectly, but you still have to know how to write a good song. Just because he sound good doesn’t mean he’s saying good stuff. As far as how he uses Auto-Tune, I don’t think he knows how it works. I think he’s thinking that you just turn it on, and then it just happens.
A lot of people don’t sing with it, a lot of people just sing and then put it on after, which is a terrible mistake. There’s a lot of stuff you’ve gotta know about Auto-Tune before you can start using it, because it’s the hot thing to do. But Future’s still great right now, he’s doing his thing.
UPDATE: Future’s Free Bandz artist Doe Boy has chimed in with a T-Pain diss track. Fittingly enough, it’s a freestyle over Ace Hood’s “Bugatti.”
