Result Usher isn’t the only person who hurt T-Pain’s feelings. During an appearance in Drink champions, T-Pain revealed that JAY-Z’s release of “Death of Autotune” made him feel in a way.
During Drink Champs, T-Pain revealed that he thought the song was a fit after hearing it for the first time.
“Of course! A wise man once said, ‘You can’t stop the hustle,'” T-Pain said. Someone was talking about the murmur of rap, Lil Yachty was the first person to appear. I was the face of Auto-Tune. Every time someone says “Auto-Tune”, I am the face. So when you say that Auto-Tune is crazy, I am the face. “
Hov revealed in an interview after the song’s release that auto-tune wasn’t an opportunity for T-Pain because he made great tunes using the tool. T-Pain revealed that he had created a distortion track towards Hov, but thankfully he never released it. Pain would also detail meeting JAY-Z and wanting to thank him and apologize, only to put all the words together and deliver “sorry for everything.”
